The Burke Street Food Truck Festival Come Rain or Shine

Sixth Annual Burke Street Food Truck Festival

Tomorrow, April 7, 2018, is the sixth annual Burke Street Food Truck Festival and this year is the biggest one yet.

There will be 70+ trucks with an entire slate of various cuisines, from Italian to Mongolian, Latin to African, Italian Ice to doughnuts. There will be something for everyone there. In addition, there will be beverage service and all the bars and shops along Burke Street, Fourth Street and Brookstown will be open and inviting you to taste their wares.

There is also a ton of vendors there to show off their goods and also there will be some public seating. Three entertainment stages will be set up along the path which reaches from the corner of Fourth and Broad, back to Fourth all the way to First/Fourth/Burke intersection. Plus, there will be things up both sides of Brookstown. The stage at First and Burke is presented by Signature Real Estate, there’s a Ramkat Stage on Brookstown and also a third stage. All full of fabulous entertainment, much from this town. That adds to the intrigue, I think. Swami’s Vintage Flea will have a plethora of vendors. The Winston-Salem Dash will have a Kids’ Zone and there will be an NC Beer Garden, as well. After all, April is NC Beer Month!

VIP tix get you an hour prior to the general population to keep the lines shorter and get more of what you want. Check this link to find more about the VIP tix presented by Allman Spry.

Now, the weather forecast is looking kind of wet. But, this is a rain or shine event and there will be plenty of places to duck into. And, just bring an umbrella. Get out there and support your local events. Don’t worry about getting a little wet.

The festival is presented by PMG Research, whose mission is to bring clinical research to as many lives as possible while delivering unparalleled service and exceptional value to our clinical trial partners and stakeholders. All proceeds from this event go to H.O.P.E. of Winston-Salem which is dedicated to preparing and transporting nutritious meals on Sunday to children in neighborhoods with high food insecurity.

So, not only are you getting great food, great times, great entertainment, but you’re providing help to a very awesome charity. That’s always awesome.

Don’t be afraid to wander into the shops on Burke Street, too. They’ll be open and ready for you. You can get a map of the food trucks by visiting here.

Enjoy! Bon appetit!
