When the Romans conquered Carthago Nova, they encountered the Liqvor Mirabilis – or marvelous liquid.

Food Truck Event


The Food Truck Event hasn’t been forgotten… in fact, it is loved by so many, that we feel it deserves its own spotlight in our event line-up. Once a part of the Culinaria Wine and Food Festival, it will now be solo in September. With this, we’re able to deliver more of what you crave – more space, more hours and more food trucks – so, you can enjoy delicious creations by mobile chefs. The day is packed with entertainment and some on-site shopping from our vendors – and, of course, plenty of beverages.

Also new this year, tickets to “purchase” food and drinks will be sold at ticket booths… so, no need to worry about which food trucks will accept cash or credit cards – we’ll accept both!
