Hey foodie officials! As we end with our festivals for 2022, let’s take a little recap of all the awesome things we did this year.
We kicked off the year by starting our festivals in sunny Panama City Beach, Florida. Shout out to Visit PCB for sponsoring the festival! We had lots of trucks and beers, perfect for the warm Florida weather – I mean who doesn’t love some good food and a cold beer? I know we do. Food Truck Festival of America was featured on WMBB News 13 and WJHG TV before we went live at our Panama City Beach festival!
FTFA then went down to Albuquerque, New Mexico in March! We had some awesome trucks and brews as well as live music! Sourpuss rocked with us for the day and kept the energy alive. While the trucks and brews are important, we also need to shine some light on the local artists and small businesses that we were able to support for this festival (as well as many others!) We had over 30+ artists and businesses in Albuquerque, ranging from resin art, jewelry, house-made salsa and so much more – there was something there for everyone.
South Carolina was our next stop in early April then to Newport, Rhode Island in May. We hit Newport twice a year, typically in the spring and fall. Newport is always a great time – the location is right by the water, salty air, good food, and cold beer. What more can you ask for?
We headed to Milwaukee, Wisconsin for our fifth year in a row and it did not disappoint! We had some of the area’s most popular food trucks that included items such as roasted corn, gooey and delicious wood-fired pizza, edible cookie dough, fresh lobster rolls, dozens of craft beers (national and regional), and so much more.
For the remainder of the year, we kept to the New England area. Visiting spots such as Suffolk Downs, Great Barrington, Canton, Cisco Portsmouth, New Hampshire, New Bedford, Salem, and Newport (again!) Salem was a two-day event at the tail-end of September, right before their month-long Halloween festivities began. People from all over came to Salem to see what the spooky town had to offer and to dig into the delicious food of course! It was an open area on the Salem Commons, so plenty of space to walk around, mingle and take your dog for a little walk, and enjoy the multiple cuisines offered by the various food trucks.
Our year will wrap up in beautiful Coastal Alabama on November 12th and 13th. There will be lots of local food trucks and brews there for everyone to enjoy as well as several artisans and small businesses to be checked out.
We hope you enjoyed this year as much as we did, and we look forward to what next year is going to bring!
