More than 2,000 people are expected to indulge in a smorgasbord of foods when the 2017 Food Truck Lobby Day takes over the Capitol Campus in Olympia.

The event runs 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursday on the campus, according to the Department of Enterprise Services. Hosted by the Washington State Food Truck Association, the event will affect traffic and parking.

At least 14 vendors will serve food during the event, including the Grilled Cheese Experience, Urban Curbside, Boss Mama’s Kitchen, Whipped Raw, Skillet Street Food, The Silver Spork, Arepa Latin Street Food, Sizzle Dogs, Tabassum, Buns on Wheels, Lumpia World, Hometown Dogs, Europa Bistro and Big Dogs.

Vendors will offer their normal menus along with “sample bites” for $3.

“Mobile food vending continues to grow as an industry here in Washington, and this community has real issues to still be addressed,” according to the association’s Facebook page. “This is such a great opportunity for food truck owners to meet their legislative representatives in person and show them we are an important small business industry growing in their communities.”
