Gourmet food, art, music, and design trucks convene at The Crown Victoria Bar to celebrate the mobility and changing landscape of NYC.

In partnership with Gawker Artists and Jalopnik, Art Cart NYC™ and Etta Place present Truck Yeah: A Mobile Meet Up. Truck Yeah is a free, cultural festival to be held on Sunday, October 2nd, 2011 at The Crown Victoria Bar in Williamsburg (60 S. 2nd Street, at Wythe). A group of 10 trucks, including Truck Farm, Rickshaw Dumpling Truck, Mud Truck, Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches, and the Green Pirate Juice Truck, will convene to celebrate the increased mobility and changing landscape of New York City. Art Cart NYC™ will exhibit work by Amia Yokoyama and Kennedy Yanko, El Camino ARTRV will show an installation by Stephen Zerbe, and Gawker Artists will present a photo box project by Adam Courtney. In addition, Etta Place will present Resident Artists, the Lonely Goat Dance company will perform, and BangOn! NYC will play music throughout the day. 

Your contributions will enable us to fund all aspects of the festival, from truck rentals to permits, fees and promotional materials, art supplies, and installation costs.

Over the course of the campaign we will feature each participant on all of our sites, and will send out dedicated newsletters. One of Gawker's sites, Jalopnik will dedicate a post to a different food truck each day of the week leading up to the event entitled "Street Meat Week."

We are really excited to share the talents of Sarah Goodreau, Barbara Low, and Stephen Zerbe, and grateful to have their work offered as your rewards.
