DUNDALK — Saturday’s food truck festival in Dundalk brought out more than 1,000 hungry people to discover what the port city has to offer. Between the summery weather, live music, beer garden, 20 vendors and seven food trucks — Dundalkians enjoyed more than just the food.
“These events bring the community together to enjoy a great time within the Dundalk area,” said Christopher Pineda, Business Development Manager for the Dundalk Renaissance Corporation. “Not only do they bring the community together but also reinforce the mission and our vision for the Historic Dundalk Town Center, one of the designated MD Main Streets. When we bring the community back to the Town Center, we are ensuring the business district is receiving attention, and bringing new people to shop and/or open a business here.”
“The event was very successful — we filled up all the vendor spaces and we had 20 general vendors and 7 Food truck vendors. I would approximate ever 1,500 people attended throughout the entire timeframe of the event, which made the event great! We had 25 awesome volunteers that helped with set-up, the beer garden, and the different logistics to make the event a success.”
“There’s lots of exciting work we’re doing at DRC — we have a Practical Money Skills workshop happening on June 25th, a Neighborhood Close-Up on the 29th, and exciting new projects happening for the business district.”
