Get the First Edition: Food Truck Application Guide!


The Guide includes links for applying to First Fridays, a map with all zones, Tips for Food Trucks on Abbot Kinney Bl and Extra Promotional Opportunities for your Food Truck All Month Long!

The Food Truck Guide Includes:

  •  A downloadable pdf guide with links to all 4 zones on Abbot Kinney for First Fridays
  •  EXTRA Promotional Options:
  • Food Truck Guide + Mention in 1st Fridays Post (3-4 lines text + photo)
  • Food Truck Guide + Mention in our First Fridays Post + 2 dedicated posts same month
The AKFF Blog has removed the buy link here as the organization approving food trucks (AKFF has ALWAYS stated that it’s NOT this Blog) asked us to remove it. They claimed the links which numerous food trucks have asked us for  is “readily available information about how to apply for First Friday …”.  We’ve given the links and other  valuable information without compensation for time and efforts,  and in order to serve, it is fair that we do get some compensation for our time.

The AKFF Blog has been serving the community 2008, blogging about 1st Fridays, Community events , Venice and surrounding areas. The AKFF Blog has benefitted NUMEROUS businesses on Abbot Kinney and in the area.

The AKFF Food Trucks page clearly states the following: “Trucks must apply, pay fees and get approved by the Abbot Kinney Festival Association.  We DO NOT Approve Trucks for 1st Fridays!”
