Foodieland has made its annual appearance at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and has left locals stunned. This weekend-long outdoor festival continues to amaze visitors, featuring new food trucks and games every year. Not only does Foodieland engage quite the crowd, but it also gives visitors the chance to try food from different cultures all around the world.

Freshman, Sophie Gitman expresses, “It was really interesting trying out foods from all of these different countries. The food was amazing; I tried birria tacos, cheese wheel pasta, lobster, and some food trucks even had drinks, like lemonade or iced tea served in oversized baby bottles.”

Foodieland has a wide range of cultures and countries with their feature foods, providing the perfect experience for people to experience a world-wide trip, only from the comfort of their own state. This event spans across the year, traveling to different destinations in the hopes of pleasing the appetites of Americans nationwide. Starting off the spring season in Las Vegas, Foodieland travels to all different American cities throughout the summer.

“Every corner I turned, there was a new selection of culturally significant food, and it was really cool getting to try so many new things. I had a great time, and I loved getting to try out such amazingly prepared meals,” Gitman says.

From European to Southern American foods, Foodieland has it all. With several rows of worldly known food trucks across the venue, visitors are given the opportunity to walk around and preview all different types of food before purchasing.

Gitman conveys, “The food was truly incredible, and I hope to go back every year. Not only was there really great food and drinks, but there was also a selection of fair games, along with great music playing across the whole venue.”

Foodieland makes for quite the unforgettable experience for visitors, presenting these worldly acclaimed food trucks alongside an organized venue with familiar fair games, such as ring toss, and musical entertainment. This event is well-known for their incredible hospitality and breathtaking foods, bringing everyone together to enjoy five-star meals.

“I would easily recommend this event to anyone who likes to try out new food, and experience new things. This was an overall great experience, and I really enjoyed getting to visit this event with my family and friends.”
