CREATED Jan. 20, 2012 - UPDATED: Feb. 3, 2012

PALM SPRINGS - Food trucks are increasing in popularity across southern California and dozens will be here in the Coachella Valley next month to help a valley high school.

The first ever Palm Springs Food Truck Festival will be held Saturday, February 4th from 10:00am to 5:00pm outside the Spa Resort Casino at 401 East Amado Road.

The event will feature a number of celebrities and operators from The Cooking Channel's Food Truck Revolution and Food Network programs Eat Street, Tyler Florence's The Great Food Truck Race including "Crepes Bonaparte", "Devilicious", "Border Grill", "Calbi Truck", "The White Rabbit", "India Jones", "Great Balls On Tires", "Ragin Cajun", "Tapa Boy" and Food Truck Race winners, "Grill Em All" among others.

Admission is $10. You'll need to buy tickets to sample food from over 40 gourmet food trucks. A portion of the proceeds will benefit music programs at Palm Springs High School and marching band as they were burglarized earlier this month.

The money will help buy new instruments for the school.
