BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore is getting a new kind of restaurant week, this time for eateries on wheels.
The inaugural Baltimore Food Truck Week will be held Nov. 6 through Nov. 10 throughout the metro area.
More than a dozen trucks will participate, serving up eats at lots of locations. You can find a full list of participating trucks and locations HERE.
A wrap-up celebration will be held at Patterson Park Nov. 10, in partnership with Baltimore Recreation and Parks and the Friends of Patterson Park. Twenty food trucks, local vendors, music and a bar will be set up by Pulaski Monument from 5 to 9 p.m.
Our media partners at The Baltimore Sun report that Willy Dely, owner of a consulting firm for food and hospitality businesses, is the driving force behind Food Truck Week.
“There’s a restaurant week happening twice a year now in every county. Why not a food truck week?” he said.
He’s also trying to help pump up their business as we head into a notoriously tough time of year for food truck owners: winter.
“It’s really more like an awareness event for food trucks,” he said.
Anyone interested in getting involved can email Dely at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
