On Sunday, Orlando-area vegans (and those who just like a good healthy meal deal) gather at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake for the first annual Vegan Trucksgiving. Hungry attendees will chow down on an 11-course meal, featuring mains from 2nd Sun Vegan, Dixie Dharma and Squid Box, desserts from Doughn't Be Cruel and Valhalla Bakery, and drinks from Humble Bumble Kombucha.

Thanksgivers receive three courses from each of the savory trucks and one dessert each from the sweets trucks, plus a full pint of  locally-brewed kombucha. Here's the full menu:

Main Courses

Sound delicious? Tickets for the very first Vegan Trucksgiving are $38 per person and can only be purchased online; no sneaking in at the door. Sales end at noon Saturday, Nov. 22. In addition to the tickets, there is also a small fee to enter the park ($2 per person or $4 per car). But 11 courses for $40? All vegan? That's something to be thankful for. The event starts at 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23. See you there?
