What to eat at the 2013 Richmond Folk Festival.

Bruno's GastroTruck, based at Smith Mountain Lake but making a name throughout Southwest Virginia, brings what it calls global curb cuisine to the Richmond Folk Festival. Look for braised beef tips, jambalaya, egg rolls and other items from this fusion food vendor.

Several Richmond restaurants return in mobile versions — La Milpa, Grapevine, India K'Raja, Carytown Burgers and Fries, Sam Miller's, Croaker's Spot, Africanne on Main, Ginger Thai Taste and Caribbean Pot.

Food truck favorites Goatocado, Boka Tako and Grate Pizza along with Espresso A Go Go, Gelati Celesti and others are on the 33-vendor list, spread among four sites at the venue.

Also new this year will be the festival's own craft beer, Folktoberfest, made by Wild Wolf Brewery of Nellysford. This is the company's inaugural Oktoberfest beer, so check it out at one of the 10 kegs tapped each day.

Expect a line at peak hours, but don't let that deter you from enjoying the ultimate pairing — street food with free, live music.
