I’m not sure if we’ve got footy finals fever or if we just genuinely love food trucks, but we’ve put together a list of all the foodie hotspots at this year’s Foxtel Footy Festival and it’s totally mouthwatering!

The four-day festival will not only make you mad about footy but will be serving up delicious finger lickin’ grub, cold refreshing drinks and tons of entertainment for all. There’s movies, live music, player meet and greets and good vibes. If you’re looking for an adventure this long weekend, this place is kicking goals.

Eat

Biggie Smalls

You’ll feel like a winner at Biggie Smalls with fresh Kebabs and footy finals fever at the G. There’ll be pimping combos and loads finger lickin’ goodness. Get your hands on the kbab burger with juicy tender beef and optional meaty extras. Team it with Shane Delia’s specialty chips and a soda for extra goodness. We’re betting die-hard footy fans will be lining up at this truck all weekend long.

Mistress Estelle

Mistress Estelle knows exactly how to satisfy a hungry footy fan with her mouth-watering brioche buns and specialty rolls. You’ll fall in love with the rotisserie chicken roll, which we recommend having with a serve of wedges on the side.

Burch & Purchese Sweet Studio

B&P is officially the sweetest truck in the park and we guarantee it will not disappoint! Support your team with the sweet footy inspired dessert tubes, or rug up with a magical soft serve or salted caramel choc pops at the footy festival’s movie night. These treats will keep your spirits high long after the siren has sounded!

Tokyo Tina

Tokyo Tina has combined the best eats, beats, and vibes from the streets of Japan and brought them to the AFL footy finals. You’re bound to score with the tasty rice paper rolls, magnificent bao and the ”breast on ground”  five-spice schnitzel. We’ll be sending three votes there way!

King Of Spuds

Grand final weekend is all about binge-eating (and drinking), and it definitely would be lost without these potato artisans. These guys have been preparing for the footy finals all week and are ready to come, feed and conquer. We’re personally thankful these loaded spuds, are just supporting the match because they sound like they’d play a mean game of footy!

Lady Carolina

This Latin American food truck is bringing its own take on the traditional meat pie to the festival—and it’s making us drool! If the meat pie taco, doesn’t win your vote the traditional Chilean style hot dogs will.

Drink

Wolf Blass At The Nest

Grand Final Day is the perfect opportunity for a glass of wine—or two. This year Wolf Blass will be hosting a wine bar at the nest to ensure you never go thirsty. There’ll be plenty of premium Wolf Blass wines to choose from, including the international award-winning red.

Yak Ales Watering Hole

This beastly truck will be serving up quality ales, for sun soaking footy fans at the G. There’ll be a selection of our favorite cold yaks, and a fresh and fruity wild yak amongst the herd. Sounds like our kind of watering hole!

Bulmers Cider Garden

We’ve found just the spot for you to kick back , relax and enjoy the good vibes of the Foxtel Footy Festival. The best part is that it’s in the cider garden so you also rehydrate with a refreshing chilled Bulmers. If you’re feeling lucky this Cider Garden is giving away two free tickets to attend the Grand Final!
