San Elijo Hills Foodie Fest Cheat Sheet

Get to steppin!

Plan to arrive at the Foodie Fest early.  We expect lots of people, so we strongly recommend you and your family walk to the event.  Not only do you not have to worry about parking, but you’ll work up a healthy appetite for all of the food trucks!

Do Your Homework

Prioritize! Know what food trucks are coming to Foodie Fest and make a short list of your must have’s and must try’s. Click HERE for a complete list of participating trucks.


Come rain or shine, the trucks are coming.  Depending on Mother Nature’s mood, jackets, umbrellas, hats and mittens may be needed.

“Bring yo’ money, honey”!

Be on the safe side and bring cash.  While a few Food Trucks take plastic, cash is preferred and great to have on hand.

Divide and Conquer

Bring your foodie friends to Foodie Fest (only ones who love to share). Each teammate can take on a different food truck line and bring back their winnings to share with the group. This way, you can try more food and split the cost.

There’s more than food…

Come for the food, stay for the fun. Be sure to give your tummy a break and check out what else may be going around you, like the beautiful tree lighting and ornament decorating for the kids!  Also, the towncenter shops will be open into the evening.  Take advantage of the specials!

Tis’ the Season to Vote… the Foodie Fest contest is on!

Vote for your favorite food truck at the Foodie Fest! Cast your vote on the San Elijo Hills Facebook page by ‘liking’ the photo of your favorite trucks. The truck with the most ‘likes’ will win a Flip video camera to document their food trucks adventures. Voting ends December 10th.

Post a photo of you, your friends or family enjoying Foodie Fest (maybe enjoying a beer at Happy Hour, getting a mani-pedi, painting an ornament, or anything else you can think of) for a chance to win an American Express gift card! Post your photo on the San Elijo Hills Facebook page. A winner will be selected on December 10th.


  • I tried to find a place to send a private message to the owner of this blog on this but couldn’t – Just an FYI, it is illegal to run a contest on the Wall of Facebook per Facebook’s guidelines [such as Post a photo and get a gift card]. They’ll take your Facebook page and all content down, including all Fans, and I’d hate to see that happen because you put out great info for the community. And, yes, they’ll do it to the smallest of Fan pages…

    • Thanks so much, Erika, for bringing this to our attention. We have posted our apologies to the people who have submitted photos and have discontinued the contest. Bummed about it, but grateful for your comments. We would hate to lose the fb page!

  • Erika,

    Our contact information is on the “Contact Us” tab.

    We will share your concern with the party running the promotion on their Facebook page which is not the San Elijo Life Fan Page.

    Thanks for your readership and support.
