GREENVILLE –Come support Main Street Greenville during its first Eat on the Street: A Food Truck Rally on July 20.
The event, held in downtown Greenville, 5-8 p.m., will feature three food trucks, each providing a unique menu in a fun dining environment.
“We have had many requests for food truck rallies and we wanted to give it a try. It has become quite popular across the country and it helps provide more options to local citizens,” said Amber Garrett, Main Street Greenville Executive Director.
The three food trucks visiting Greenville will be The Shakery Juice Bar, Harvest Mobile Cuisine, and VooDoo Taco, and will be located in the 120 West Third Street parking lot.
“Our organization’s mission is to revitalize our downtown district, trying new things is a good way to revitalize,” said Garrett.
Patrons can either enjoy their food at the food truck rally location with live music provided by Jennifer Murray or get their food to-go and head to the Greenville City Park for the Greenville Municipal Band Sunday night concert, starting at 7:30 pm at the band shell.
“Some food truck vendors are using the trucks as a temporary location, and our hope is that some of the vendors will enjoy downtown Greenville so much they’ll want to open a permanent location,” said Garrett.
“We scheduled the event on a Sunday night for a few reasons. We did not want the event to harm busy times for our existing downtown restaurants and we wanted to help promote the Sunday concerts in our beautiful Greenville City Park.”
