Food trucks from Baltimore and Washington to square off on Rash Field

Get ready to roll.

Baltimore and Washington’s fleets of food trucks are squaring off again. Some 40 trucks, 20 from each city, are expected to attend the second Taste of Two Cities event on June 1, which is relocating from Westport Waterfront to Rash Field.

Food trucks from Baltimore and Washington will compete in several categories. An overall winner will be presented the Mayor’s Cup Trophy by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who performed the same honors at the event’s premier edition, when Baltimore’s Gypsy Queen was selected the best by a panel of judges.

This year’s edition will again include a People’s Choice Award and a new prize, the United Way’s Golden Carrot, to be presented by the United Way of Central Maryland’s “Healthy Food Ambassador” Molly Shattuck to the food truck with the healthiest item on its menu.

The event is being organized by Damian Bohager, who produces the weekly Baltimore-based food-truck rallies known as The Gathering, which originally were held on a monthly basis but are now held weekly at rotating venues.

This year’s event will offer a few amenities that the first edition didn’t have, things like a children’s play space and family activities such as volleyball and corn hole tournaments. Through ought the day, there will be performances by the bands Old Man Brown, Bosley and Brooks Long and the Mad Dog No Good.

Proceeds from A Taste of Two Cities will benefit the United Way of Central Maryland’s efforts to fight hunger. Attendees who bring a healthy non-perishable food item to donate will receive a $2 discount on admission.

A Taste of Two Cities is noon to 9 p.m June 1 at Rash Field in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Admission is $5 in advance, $8 at the event, and free for children under 12. For more information got to tasteoftwocities.com.
