The Las Vegas Foodie Fest, featuring more than 30 food trucks and vendors, will return to the Silverton Casino Hotel Friday, Oct. 18 –  Sunday, Oct. 20.

Food aficionados will enjoy the food and fun of the three-day festival from 4 p.m. – midnight on Friday; noon – midnight on Saturday; and noon – 10 p.m. on Sunday.

Festival goers can enjoy tasty bites from more than 30 food trucks and vendors, some of which have been featured on the Food Network, History Channel, Cooking Channel and Travel Channel. The festival will feature newcomers Bacon Mania and the Buttermilk Truck, both of “The Great Food Truck Race” fame. Bacon Mania serves up items like bacon cheese crisps, BLTs, chili con bacon and more. At the Buttermilk Truck you’ll find red velvet chocolate chip pancakes, Hawaiian bread breakfast sliders and fried chicken with housemade cinnamon waffles.

Other new additions to the lineup will be Sin City Dogs, The Phantom Food Truck, A Bite Truck and Lobsta Trap Truck.

Local food trucks attending the festival include: Dragon Grille, Sin City Cupcakes, Melteez, Sauced, Wa Da Pho and others.

Many trucks will be traveling from other states to attend the Las Vegas Foodie Fest, including Tornado Potato from Los Angeles, which serves spiral cut potatoes topped with items like garlic Parmesan, truffle oil, chili and nacho cheese.

After White Castle’s popularity in April’s Foodie Fest, America’s first fast food hamburger chain will be bringing back their grills to cook their signature mini-burgers. The popular burger joint will return with triple the grills, triple the staff and will debut their new Crave Mobile for foodies interested in purchasing 10 or fewer burgers. In addition to the Crave Mobile line, White Castle will have two areas — one for those looking to purchase fewer than 60 burgers — and one for fans looking to purchase more than 60 burgers.

Foodie Fest attendees will also enjoy music, a carnival, car show, a beer garden and eating competitions.

Admission is $10 per person starting the week of the event and includes access to all three days with unlimited re-entry to the festival. Children under 4 feet 6 inches tall will receive complimentary admission. Guests can purchase pre-sale tickets starting at $5 per person, when purchased in advance through the website. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.lasvegasfoodiefest.com.

Guests can attend the event in style with a VIP area that includes cocktails from Lee’s Liquor and cooking demonstrations, starting at $50 for a limited time only, up to $100 for all three days. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Epicurean Charitable Foundation, a local organization that enriches the lives of deserving local students passionate about a career in hospitality and/or the culinary arts.
