Can’t get downtown for the big food truck gatherings on weekdays? Not to worry this weekend, when your craving can be satisfied by 7-9 trucks each day at the E. 9th Street pier.
You might have to fight some bigger crowds, though. The location was chosen by the city and Downtown Cleveland Alliance because it is a prime spot for thousands of people viewing the Cleveland National Air Show from outside the gates of Burke Lakefront Airport, where the show is held.
Both trucks and restroom facilities will be on the pier 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Parking will be a challenge, so think ahead, or click here forCleveland.com’s downtown parking map.
The event makes food trucks gatherings in the city into a seven-day operation this week. Memorial Monday, usually held outside Cuyahoga County Common Pleas courthouse, is suspended for this week because of the holiday.
Here’s who you’ll find on the pier:
Saturday: Pig Lickin’ Good, Sweet! Mobile Cupcakery, DonutLAB, Green Machine, Off the GRIDdle, Krav, Manna Food Truck.
Sunday: Green Machine, StrEAT Mobile Bistro, Off the GRIDdle, Krav, Wholly Frijoles, Stuff Yourself, Chill Pop Shop, CLE Juice Box, Manna Food Truck.
Monday: Pig Lickin’ Good, Green Machine, StrEATMobile Bistro, The Nosh Box, DonutLAB, Get Stuffed, Manna Food Truck.
Here are some other truck stops this weekend:
The Nosh Box and 216 Bistro at the Fairlawn Food Truck Round-Up on Sunday; Fire Truck Pizza Company at Westwood Town Center on Saturday, Fairlawn on Sunday; B&M Barbecue at Thistledown Race Track on Monday.
