The festival will feature more than a dozen of New England’s most popular food trucks – many of which returning to the festival for the second year in a row!

The trucks will be serving up everything from gourmet grilled cheese to barbecue ribs, to taco varieties, pesto pizza and lobster rolls, plus dessert trucks with homemade ice cream sandwiches, whoopee pies, cupcakes and more. The festival will also feature sampling tents, live music, and beer and wine for sale.
