‘Chuck Wagons: The First Food Trucks’ at The Autry

January 26 @ 7:00 pm

The Urban Chuck Wagon: 100 Years of Food Truck Fare at The Autry

Chuck Wagons: The First Food Trucks is a new tasting event coming to The Autry on January 26!

Come try some traditional chuck wagon cuisine, then experience updated versions from contemporary chefs bringing some Pacific flair. Tickets include plates from multiple food stations, access to the galleries and garden, and presentations by chefs and food history experts.

Los Angeles’ first food trucks — horse-drawn carriages — popped up back in the 1880s and were inspired by the chuck wagons of the Old West. Mostly operated by immigrants, the foods they served were the basis of some of Angelenos’ favorites dishes to this day.

Chuck Wagons: The First Food Trucks is particularly suited to The Autry, a museum devoted to the history of the American West.

Tickets are $65 and reservations are recommended. See the link below for more details. Enjoy!
