Connecticut Food Truck Festival in North Haven 7/19 & 7/20

Hello Readers!

WHAT:     The 1st Annual Connecticut Food Truck Festival! 
WHEN:     Saturday and Sunday July 19th & 20th 
WHERE:  North Haven Fairgrounds (300 Washington Ave, North Haven, CT 06473)
TIME:       11am to 7pm 
COST:      $5 each (under 17 free with parent)

Cat Tales will be accepting donations of food/supplies/funds to helps support cats and kittens under our careCome meet us and learn how we help abandoned cats and kittens in our community!

Over 50 food and specialty drink vendors, live music all weekend, free activities for the kids, retail and artisan vendors, raffles and more!

The festival admission is $5 per person and includes parking, kids under 17 are free but must have a parent with them. 

We have close to 50 food providers, live CT bands playing throughout the weekend, a bunch of bounce houses, inflatable obstacle course, games, contests and DJ all provided free for the kids as well as clowns providing free face painting. 

All Saturday attendees will receive a ticket which can be brought back on Sunday to enjoy some of the new trucks that will be joining us that day at a discounted admission of $2. All the trucks will be selling their top items and many will be doing smaller portions at a reduced price to allow you to try multiple trucks. 

How we arrive at the admission cost is the total cost of the event, a little over $50,000 so far (venue rental, entertainment, insurance, advertising, police, fire, trash removal, event staff and the list goes on). On top of that we hope to contribute thousands of dollars for the local food banks to help support them. Unlike other festivals, we just want to cover all the costs and be able to contribute heavily to our local community which is why we are paying for entertainment for the kids so parents don't have to. By coming out you are supporting a lot of good causes as well as the trucks and vendors, many of them just starting their own local businesses. Please make a point to come out and enjoy this event, you'll be helping a lot of people!!
