via release:Quote:The Brewery District Trade Association and Central Ohio Food Truck Association are pleased to announce: “Dia de Los Food Trucks: Presented by the Brewery District Trade Association and Central Ohio Food Truck Association”. The first event is set for Friday, November 1st from 4:30-9pm and will include 15 of Central Ohio’s finest food trucks set up in Brewmaster’s Gate and lined down Liberty St, which will be closed to traffic during the festival. Beer trucks will provide local, common and seasonal options, and live entertainment from local band The Lovebenders will be featured in Brewmaster’s Gate. Brewery District business owners and COFTA are working together to organize food and beer vendors, as well as live entertainment.
Both associations would like to keep this event as a monthly food truck event series, and hope to draw attention and traffic to the vibrant and reemerging Brewery District dining and entertainment scene.
The Brewery District Trade Association consists of several businesses in the Brewery District neighborhood. The group meets monthly to discuss initiatives and plans for area development. Julie Klein of Shadowbox Live is the President of BDTA.
The Central Ohio Food Truck Association is headed by Brian Reed of MoJoTaGO and advocates for food truck owners and operators serving Central Ohio. The group was established to provide a platform for advocacy, communication and education for its members and the community it serves centralohiofoodtrucks.org.
“The Central Ohio Food Truck Association is extremely excited to partner with the BDTA for Dia de los Food Trucks. As a newly formed (established 2012) grass roots association, we have been looking for an event that we can call our own. An event that will give us the opportunity to raise money for our association, showcase our members and provide a platform to highlight our industry. We look forward to collaborating and growing this event with the help of the BDTA, it’s members and our members at COFTA,” said Brian Reed.
“We believe over time we can provide a unique community event that provides great food, beer and entertainment in a part of the city that was well known providing just that. We hope to bring people back to the Brewery District that spent a little time there in years past along with bringing in a new group of folks that have yet to appreciate what the area has to offer. We believe it will be a win for the area merchants, bars and restaurants, along with the food trucks BUT especially the consumer,” said Brian Reed.
“The Association (Brewery District Trade Association) has been looking for a unique event that the District could call its own. Brian (Reed) came to us because he was seeking a neighborhood where COFTA could hold regular events so it seemed a perfect fit. We are hoping this will be the first of many food truck happenings in the Brewery District and that it will not only be great for those who live and work in the area, but draw other folks down to the area. There is a lot going on down here. It’s a great place to live work and play,” said Julie Klein.Quote:November 1, 2013 1:22 pm at 1:22 pm #553537
