City-Sponsored Food Truck Event Kicks Off Spring, Area Derby Events
LOUISVILLE (April 18, 2012) – Noting that more people are on the street with the warmer weather, and that Derby already is in the air, Mayor Fischer is sponsoring a special food truck lunch event on the streets around Metro Hall.
“We are becoming quite the foodie town, and I want to make sure that everyone knows the amazing opportunities we have in Louisville, from the fanciest of white tablecloth restaurants to the mobile food vendors on our streets,” Fischer said. “As a way to raise awareness about our growing food truck movement, I want to encourage downtown works, conventioneers and visitors to get out and try one or more of them.”
Ten trucks will line Jefferson and Sixth Streets, serving their fare between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24.
Louisville was named by Zagat as one of the “8 Best Foodie Getaways in the WORLD,” with Louisville being the only U.S. city named, and also received accolades from Southern Living, being named the second top “Tastiest Town”..
“New restaurants continue to open, getting Louisville national attention and bringing new vibrancy to areas of our city,” added Fischer.
“We appreciate the city’s support for these micro-business enterprises,” says Leah Stewart, owner of the Louisville Dessert Truck. “Having an opportunity to bring food trucks together in one event gets the word out about what we have to offer and gives people the opportunity to try out a few different vendors in one location. It’s a real win for food trucks and a real win for the city.”
Participating trucks include:
Louisville Dessert Truck
Get It On A Bun at Booty’s Diner
San Diego Sandwich Works
Genius In a Box
One Hot Tamale
The Traveling Kitchen
