Suwanee 2013 Events: Food Truck Fridays Are Possible

The city's tentative calendar also includes some returning favorites.

It's still in planning mode, but don't be surprised if you see an unusual amount of food trucks hanging around Suwanee Town Center Park in 2013.

Several Food Truck Fridays are on the city's tentative events calendar for the coming year. These will replace the monthly Toast @ Town Center street festivals.

Denise Brinson, the city's economic development director, gave City Council members a rundown Thursday (January 10) of the draft version of the festivities.

Food Truck Fridays would be May 3, June 7, August 2, and September 6. This means Suwanee would join a growing number of cities and venues to host the rolling vendors. There is the Atlanta Food Truck Park, and the Atlanta Street Food Festival was held last July.

Brinson said that the food trucks would be located in the vendor area near the amphitheater stage, and that onstage entertainment is likely. She also said that Town Center restaurants do not feel threatened by a food truck invasion, since it brings visitors to the park area.

Dates have been reserved for concerts, including Suwanee Day, but no performers have been booked. In 2012, Vertical Horizon and The Smithereens were the noted rock acts.

Other possible event plans for Suwanee include:

  • Suwanee Beer Festival, March 16
  • Woofstock, May 11
  • Arts In The Park, May 18
  • Suwanee Day, September 21
  • Taste Of Suwanee, October 12
  • Korean Festival, October 19-20
  • Christmas In The Park, December 13-14

This is a good idea! Food Truck dinning is 'in' and would be fun to have. Is Suwanee thinking about having this on a Saturday also? They might have more folks come on a weekend vs a weekday. Just a thought...

What about FOOD TRUCK FRIDAYS for the lunch hours 11am to 3pm every other Friday throughout the year? Change up the trucks and let the public vote on their favorites for an all-star return in late October.

The excitement of the "...rising street food scene..." can be viewed on the program EAT ST. on The Cooking Channel (channel 232 DirecTV)
