It all began with a young couple who were passionate for art, food and making people happy. One had been a chef for years, and had worked for various 5 star restaurants and catering companies in Los Angeles, CA. The other was an artist and loved to bake in her spare time. We decided to put their talents to use, and thus The Carnival Food Truck was born!
The idea behind the food truck was to bring fun back to the streets of Los Angeles by way of food. We had no idea that our business would grow from a food truck into a catering company that caters all sorts of events - from birthday parties and company picnics to corporate catering and weddings
Since The Carnival Food Truck's beginning in May 2015, we have catered many events, and are more passionate than ever about our true goal.. to be the most sought after catering service in the Los Angeles area, by offering unique, flexible menus, unbeatable prices, and an overall unforgettable experience to those who need our services.
While we specialize in creative, custom catering menus, we find that most of our clients go for items we put together on our Sample Menu page. We offer wait and bar service as an added option.
Whatever your event, we can make it the most special - small or large, casual or elegant - whatever your dreams, we will make your occasion unforgettable.
We provide the highest level of service, freshly made cuisine, and delicious appetizers and desserts. You tell us what you want and we'll make it happen for you and your guests. No menu is too small or too big. Whatever your tastes, our chef will design the menu you're looking for.
Our food truck and commercial kitchen facilities makes it possible to cater to most of Los Angeles, Ventura County & surrounding cities. As an added precaution, our delivery drivers have warmers installed in their vehicles. What are you waiting for?

“Best Thanksgiving dinner I've ever had! Oh man - The Catering Carnival was absolutely amazing and I can't wait to hire them again! We had our Thanksgiving dinner drop-off catered by them this year. It was magnificent. They allowed us to customize our menu to our exact specifications and then BOY did they ever deliver. The food arrived at the exact minute we had requested. It was all hot and yummy! The turkey was succulent, the stuffing contained a plethora of amazing flavors with a hint of sweet, the yams practically tasted like pie filling, and (my favorite) the green bean casserole was many different layers of savory goodness. There were also Brussel sprouts with bacon, some yummy rolls, and their homemade Mac and cheese was the bomb! Kids loved it... ok yes, the adults went nuts for it too! Like I said, we are already planning on hiring them for our next event.... so, I would highly recommend them! You will not be disappointed!" - Edwin
