TULSA, OK – Tulsa food truck fans will finally have a place to find their favorite mobile vendors.
Organizers of the Park in the Pearl have worked hard to get the city’s first permanent food truck court ready to serve the public five days a week and plan to celebrate with a grand opening this weekend.
“Even with social media, people still have a hard time finding us. This gives us a centrally located place where they can find us,” said Josh Lynch, one of the park’s organizer.
After months of paperwork and physical labor preparing a grassy area for vendors and their hungry customers, the Park in the Pearl will host its inaugural event Saturday and Sunday.
“We’ve been putting a lot of time into this, and in the long run this will be better, not just for us but for Tulsa,” said Joel Bein, co-owner of Rub food truck and one of the park’s organizers.
The park, on private land at 418 S. Peoria Ave., features seating, a stage and shaded areas for diners, and has water and electricity for the trucks to reduce the noise of generators. The goal is to make it a family-friendly place where the kids can roam and parents can enjoy good food and live music, Bein said.
