There will be more than the aroma of salt air floating through the air around the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk this coming weekend. This is no April Fool’s joke – on April 1, 2017 Myrtle Beach is hosting its first ever Food Truck Festival. The event will take place from 11 am to 7 pm at the Burroughs and Chapin Pavilion Place, between 8th and 9th Avenue North along the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk
This event is free to the public and there will be over twenty food trucks parked and cooking up everything from pizza, seafood, barbecue and southern cuisine to kettle corn, Italian ice and baked goods.
There will even be a food truck selling alcohol-infused popsicles – a new craze. There will definitely be cuisine to satisfy everyone’s palettes as you find yourself trying new things and eating outside the typical “box” of a brick and mortar restaurant.
In addition to the food trucks, there will be live music as well as a beer garden offering craft beer and wine, and various artisan vendors. There is going to be an amazing lineup of musicians playing throughout the entire festival, so make sure to bring a beach chair or blanket so you relax and enjoy the tunes of Brad Long from 11 am to 1:30 pm and Paul Grimshaw Band from 2 pm to 4:30 pm. Then dance the night away to the soulful sound of True Sol performing from 5 pm to 7 pm.
There will be a Cornhole Tournament hosted by Coastal Tailgating taking place from 12 pm to 4 pm. Registration opens at 10 am that morning and the cost is $10 a team or $5 per player. It’s double elimination, two man teams with a cash payout of 80% of the pot to the 1st place winners and 20% payout of the pot to the team that comes in 2nd place. Space is limited to 40 teams so make sure to sign up early. Click here to register online.
This is a family friendly event so be sure to bring the kids. A Kids Zone will be set up offering rock walls, bounce houses, face painting, mascot character meet-n-greets and much more! The prices for some of the activities will vary.
There won’t be an ATM onsite, so attendees are encouraged to bring cash. The weather is supposed to be perfect for the festival – sunny and 77 degrees.
