    • This ticket includes entry, $13 in Truck Bucks and a custom pint glass (while supplies last).
  • #2: Entry Only – $7
    • This ticket includes entry and a custom pint glass (while supplies last). This ticket does not include any Truck Bucks. We strongly recommend that you purchase Truck Bucks ahead of time to save time in line at the event.

What is the advantage of purchasing a presale ticket?
Purchasing your entry ticket and Truck Bucks ahead of time will save you time in line at the event. Additionally, presale tickets include a custom pint glass while supplies last. These glasses will not be available at the event.

In addition to these benefits, we must be mindful of event capacity. Our ability to sell entry tickets at the door will depend on the number of presale tickets sold. We cannot guarantee that those that do not purchase a presale ticket will be able to enter the event.

When does the ticket presale end?
Presale tickets will be available until our branches close on Friday, September 27th. However, pint glasses will only be available while supplies last.

Truck Bucks

How many Truck Bucks should I purchase?

That depends on how much you think you’re likely to eat and/or drink. Most food trucks have entrees between $6 and $10, with sides/small plates in the $1-$5 range. Beers are $4 each in the beer garden. So if you get an entree for $8, a side for $4 and 2 beers, you would need $20 in Truck Bucks.

What if I don’t use all of the Truck Bucks I purchase?
You can either donate them to the great cause we’re raising money for – Whatcom County Food Banks – or turn them in for a refund when you leave the event.

What increments for Trucks Bucks are available for purchase?
Truck Bucks are available in increments of $5.

Do kids need Truck Bucks?
Yes. Kids under 12 receive free entry to the event, but still need Truck Bucks to purchase food.
