Plus, we have a few spots still available for vendors and food trucks.  If you are interested, please fill out a vendor pre-registration form here.

Food Trucks! 

Yes, of course there will be food and plenty of it.  We don't want you to go hungry. From tacos to fried chicken to shaved ice and more. You'll be sure to find something in our food court to enjoy.  There are tables and chairs under the shade trees adjacent to the food trucks. Please clean up after yourself. Although we like to think that the people who are reading this don't need to be told to be kind to Mother Earth and keep her clean, right? Here's the current list of our food vendors:

Amy's Grill LLC ● Ater's Food Truck ● Frosty's Shaved Ice ● Home Skillet ● Kona Ice of Elkton Newark ● Silver City Mugs ● Stix Chicken ● Tenchi Spanish American Kitchen ● The Brain Freezer ● The Chicken Smells Good ● The Polish Connection

You can also purchase bottled water from the Central Delaware Habitat for Humanity tent on Loockerman Street to benefit their fundraising efforts.
