Food trucks are all the rage at food-centric festivals. Well, at most of them.
"We would never think of bringing in food carts or outside food vendors to our events like the Harvest Fest,” says Marie DeBrocky, the new chair of Upper Union Street Business Improvement District that organizes and sponsors the 8th annual event."We have over a dozen wonderful food choices here 365 days of the year. Why import?”
The array includes several Italian restaurants, an Irish pub, a Jewish deli, a bagel shop, two Chinese restaurants, and Delish, a recently-opened nice cream shop. Japanese, Carolina and Tennessee barbecue, California Tex-Mex, an American cafe, a Colombian-accented coffee house and a variety of fast-food establishments also are available.
Live music, artists, children’s activities, gourmet marketplace, a psychic, pony rides, charity tie-ins and retail promotions will be included on the festival.
