A tasty proposition comes to Front Street next month with the launch of the inaugural Bermuda Food Truck Festival.

Organised by the Bermuda Tourism Authority, the free event will take place on Sunday, October 9, featuring 13 food trucks and pop-up vendors at No. 1 Car Park from 1pm to 6pm.

Emphasis will be placed on Bermuda dishes, featured alongside traditional food truck favourites like fish sandwiches, hot dogs, snowballs and homemade lemonade.

Pat Phillip-Fairn from the BTA said: “Whether it’s a spiny lobster, cassava pie or fried wahoo from a food truck — if there’s a food tradition residents enjoy, we want visitors to have a try too.”

The live entertainment line-up includes the Simons Brothers, In Motion, Kennel Boys and Working Title, while DJ Rusty G will bring an hour-long soca celebration.

The festival’s participating vendors are: AAA Hot Dog Cart, Ashley’s Lemonade Stand, Bermuda Cupcake Company, Cann-Da-Licious, DeGraff’s Lunch Wagon, Dandy Donuts, Ginger Beer Truck, Jor-Jay’s Take Out, Keith’s Kitchen, Scoops n Cones Ice Cream Truck, Smokin’ Barrel, Snowball Shack and Stevens Lunch Wagon.
