Motif’s 2021 RI Food Truck Awards

Please join us for the Motif 2021 Food Truck Award Ceremony

Monday, September 13 from 6-9pm at R1 Indoor Karting, 100 Higginson Ave, Lincoln, RI 02865
Yes, there will be food trucks!

Our Food Truck Awards, now in its 5th year (with time off for pandemics), draws nominations from our food writers and the event planners at Food Trucks In and other food truck events around the state, plus suggestions from the trucks themselves.

This year, we’re also doing Drink Awards.

Both events are celebrations of these crowd-pleasing art forms. Take a look around at the other nominated goodies – maybe find inspiration for your next sampling night or meal. Pick your favorites, please, but the emphasis isn’t on who wins, it’s on recognizing how much amazing food and drink is being produced right here in our own backyard.

Here are the nominees:
