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.

Vineland Public Schools partnered with the Vineland Downtown Improvement District to sponsor a scarecrow contest.

Twenty-seven scarecrows created by public, private, parochial and charter schools, and the Woman's Club of Vineland, are now “standing guard” along Landis Avenue between Myrtle Street and the Boulevard. The themes for the entries run the gamut from classic to a whale to Einstein to Harry Potter to Ninja Turtle to Maleficent.

Community members are invited take a stroll along the Avenue to view the scarecrows and vote for their favorite. Votes may be cast via anonymous paper ballots or online. In case you can't get to the Avenue to see the scarecrows, photographs of the entries are available on the online ballot.

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.
