Madison, WI: Isthmus a la Carts – Madison’s food cart festival returns for 2013!

By Contributor | The Daily Page


The wildly popular Isthmus a la Carts, a celebration of the Madison-area street food scene, once again pulls up to Olin Park, on the shores of beautiful Lake Monona, on Friday, May 10.

Come hungry! Isthmus is lining up some of Madison’s finest food carts, including Fried & Fabulous, Blowing Smoke, Slide, Igo Vego, Mad City Fry Guy, and many more. Your ticket gets you in the gate to try sample-size portions of all these fabulous local flavors.

Leinenkugel will be pouring craft brews, and new this year, craft soda will be on tap from local start-up Wisco PopIsthmus is proud to partner with FEED Kitchens (Food Enterprise & Economic Development Kitchens) — a local nonprofit developing a publicly available commercial kitchen. FEED volunteers will help tend bar, and share in the proceeds from the event.

The dinner bell rings at 4 p.m., rain or shine, and the music and refreshments run until 8. Leave work early! This is a delicious way to kick off a great spring weekend and taste all that Madison awesome food carts have to offer.

Tickets are $17 in advance. They are available at online or at Isthmus offices, located at 101 King Street, at the corner of Pinckney and Main on the Capitol Square. Last year this food fest sold out early, so don’t wait!
