It’s coming, it’s really coming! Trailer Food Tuesdays has announced it’s triumphant return for 2015 at the Long Center. There are some changes to the traditional layout though. We have the insider scoop on 2015.
The series will be condensed to (3) events this year (June 9 – July 7- August 4), but that’s okay! With the new format, more trucks are being added to meet demand from patrons and the foot print is growing. The Long Center’s lawn, terrace and lower entry will boast food trucks, games, vendors and music!
Although a shorter season, organizers have hinted at a “festival” feel in their valiant quest to make Trailer Food Tuesdays the premier mobile food event in the country. Needless to say, we’re on board and super excited for the upcoming season.
Grab those blankets, appetites and friends because it’s going to get very, very tasty this summer.
Interested trucks and trailer can apply at http://trailerfoodtuesdays.com/apply. There is a May 1 cut off for the June 9 event.
