Erie Food Truck Festival is Ready to Groove
Saturday, July 10
Brightly colored food trucks line the former GE Fields, music plays, the smell of barbecue, fries, and other local bites fill the air. The Erie Food Truck Festival is here.
The event will host local food trucks — including SorcErie, Donutology, Tasty Twist, JEBs, Chameleon, and more — as well as local brews — from Lavery Brewing Co., Erie Brewing Co., Six Mile Cellars, Presque Isle Vineyard, Black Monk Brewery, and Arundel Cellars — and local bands. Attendees are welcome to enjoy the festival outdoors with a purchase of a ticket in advance.
Tommy Link will start the day off at 3 p.m., with Zack Orr following at 4:30. The day's headlining act, The Groove will take the stage at 6 p.m., closing out the night.
"The Groove rocked our virtual Front Porch Festival during the pandemic, so they were the natural headliner for this year's return to the field. We're ready to get together and get tuned up again this year," said event organizer Kate Philips, CEO of Parker Philips.
While last year's event supported local businesses, this year's cause will return to its original goal. The festival is organized to benefit the Iroquois School District Foundation, a nonprofit organization that allows educational opportunities for district students in grades K-12.
"This year we're back to our initial mission which is to support the School District Foundation," explained Philips. "It supports the school and the kids, it's a celebration of all that is great about our local food and brewery and wine scene, and our local bands. It's a celebration about what Erie County is all about."
Tickets are on sale at $15 a person with full access to the local brews, local bands, and local bites. Tickets will be on sale until Friday, July 2 at midnight.
