Some of the area’s top food trucks are coming back to town in the next few months, and I can’t be more excited about it.
Mark your calendars now for …
- Sunday, May 22: Downtown Food Truck Festival. Grab lunch or an early dinner and check out live music at the site of the farmers’ market. Noon to 3 p.m. Sponsored by Educators Credit Union.
- Saturday, July 30: This is a first – Food Truck Saturday at South Milwaukee Lionsfest! The Lions are turning over most of their food service to some of the top local food trucks for one day only. (You can still get the rib dinners, corn and potatoes from the Lions and, of course, soda and beer.) Food trucks are on site from noon to 10 p.m.
- Sunday, September 18: Downtown Food Truck Festival #2. Noon to 3 p.m. Sponsored by Educators Credit Union.
Among the trucks planned at all three events: Streetza Pizza, Gouda Girls, Burgermeister, Eats and Treats, Falafel Guys, Meat on the Street and Oscar’s.
Thanks to South Milwaukee’s own Scott Baitinger, owner of Streetza Pizza, for organizing this, and bringing these trucks to town. I love great food, and challenging South Milwaukeeans’ palates (including my own). From the attendance at our first two events last year, it looks like people agree.
