Food Truck Festival On The Ave

Food Truck Festival On The Ave

FOOD TRUCK FESTIVAL COMING TO THE AVE ON AUGUST 6

Full Day of Great Food, Entertainment, and Activities

 

Food truck festivals are all the rage these days. They have them in Hammonton, Sea Isle City, North Wildwood and in a growing number of places near and far. They’re popular because the food trucks bring a wide variety of good food—and the whole atmosphere and ambiance is festive.

Well, you won’t have to travel far to enjoy one of these events because I’m proud to announce the first annual Food Truck Festival on The Ave coming right to downtown Vineland on Sunday, August 6. That’s right! It’ll be at Landis Avenue and the Boulevard, rain or shine, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and, in the words of a legendary television personality of the past, it’ll be” r-r-r-r-r-really big!”

This mega-event, sponsored by Newfield National Bank, is really going to sizzle. You’ll want to come hungry for some absolutely tremendous food but, aside from the food and the beer, we’ll have non-stop entertainment and activities throughout the eight hours.

THE REALTOR TOUR ON THE AVE

THE REALTOR TOUR ON THE AVE

A key component to downtown revitalization is not only filling available properties on The Ave, but also filling them with quality, sustainable businesses and, likewise, creating quality living downtown living space.

To do this, we have created several initiatives, and one that has yielded real dividends we have done it so far has been our Realtor Tour on The Ave—a project of our Economic Vitality Team. The fruit this initiative has borne over the previous three times we have done the tour can be seen in some of the results. The first time it was done, we saw five of the properties we showed rented. Another tour resulted in Mauro’s on the Ave, The Ave’s latest restaurant and lounge, which opened last year next to the Landis Theater.

What is Main Street?

What is Main Street?

From time to time, someone will ask me, “What is Main Street?”

They know of Main Road. They know that Landis Avenue is the main street of Vineland. They know that Millville has a main artery named Main Street. But where’s Main Street in Vineland?

“Main Street,” in the way that it is used in “Main Street Vineland” isn’t the name of a specific street. It’s the name of a national program that is part of the National Main Street Center, which, in turn, is a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It has been in existence on a national scale for over 35 years.
