[ARCHIVED] Montgomery Kicks Off Summer with Year Two of the Food Truck Fest

Montgomery Street Eats Fest 2021

Montgomery Kicks Off the Summer with Year Two of the Food Truck Fest
Montgomery, IL – On Saturday, June 4, the Montgomery Street Eats Festival will take place in Montgomery Park (301 N. River St.) and along River Street adjacent to the Fox River in the downtown area of Montgomery. The daylong event (11A-7P) will feature ten food trucks, a DJ, and a beer garden in the shaded park along the scenic river. The event, produced by Brew Avenue Events, benefits the Montgomery Foundation.
“We received rave reviews from last year’s first-time event in Montgomery. The setting is perfect. The shaded park with the river backdrop makes the ideal location for food trucks. It will look awesome having all the food trucks lining River Street,” says Brew Avenue Events owner Alessandro Vazquez. Vazquez suggests that eventgoers bring their blankets and chairs to hang out in Montgomery Park along the river and enjoy the event after they grab food from one of the food trucks. However, the Village of Montgomery and Fox Valley Park District plans to have 40 picnic tables on-site for those who would like to stop by for a quick bite to eat.
The food trucks offer a wide variety of food, such as mini doughnuts, funnel cakes, and ice cream for those looking for something sweet. In addition, the fest features staple items such as various takes on burgers and fries from Culinary Gangster and Serna’s Grill, mac and cheese bowls from Auntie Vee’s, and crowd-favorite the Happy Lobster food truck with their famous lobster rolls. In addition, local downtown Montgomery’s own Grumpy Gaucho will be on-site with empanadas and churros. The list of vendors is available on the event’s Facebook page and is subject to change. 
“Food truck events continue to be a great way for friends and families to get outside together and not have to worry about the ongoing COVID concerns or deal with the stress of what to plan to eat that everyone will like, says Communications Manager for the Village, Kristina Nemetz. “Last year, this event was a huge hit. We had people stop by for lunch, some for a snack, some for dinner, and a few groups stayed the entire day.” 
Tickets are not required, but those planning to attend may register online in advance through Brew Avenue Event’s Eventbrite site. Ample free parking is available in downtown Montgomery. Admission to the event is complimentary. All food vendors and the beer garden will be accepting credit card payments. The food truck lineup is subject to change.
