What better way to kick off Father’s Day weekend than to go to a Food Truck Fest? The Lincroft Village Green Association (LVGA) is hosting its 2nd Annual “Lincroft Eats” Food Truck Festival at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft. The fundraising event will be held Friday, June 16, 2017 from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. and will have popular food trucks, craft vendors, live music, kids’ activities and a classic car show. Admission is $5 for adults and children 12 and under are free.
The gourmet food truck line-up is sure to please palates of any age. Whether one craves a juicy burger, savory empanada, smoothie bowls, fresh seafood, specialty coffee and more, there is sure to be any foodies’ favorite on the menu. Check out the website to see the list of food trucks attending this year’s event.
What’s a festival without live music? The LVGA has a great mix of musicians taking the stage this June. Opening the show at 3:00 p.m. will be NYC-based Martin Rivas, who has cut six albums and traveled the world sharing his modern folk sound on stages in the United States, the UK, Ireland, and continental Europe. Performing at 4:00 p.m. is local band Kat Phunk, a band of three teenage musicians, (including Lincroft’s very own Sean Moran on keyboard). New to the music scene is DUB, a bluegrass band made up of members of the medical community, who will be opening for the headliner band of the evening, Not-On-Call. The LVGA is thrilled that Not-On-Call band members are taking a break from their busy schedules as doctors and nurses for an encore appearance.
Another highlight of the event is the Classic Car Show. Classic car owners who want to show their “pride and joy” and vie for a trophy can find the registration form at www.lincroftvillagegreen.org. The participants in the Classic Car Show will vote on the classic cars in six classes, based on both the year built (1992 and prior) and the category of foreign or domestic made. Space is limited to 130 cars so early registration is encouraged. The LVGA appreciates the support of its generous trophy sponsors that are featured on its website.
The LVGA is accepting applications for art and craft vendors and plans to again have a variety of craft tents fill the large, open area of the Brookdale campus. If you or someone you know make unique, hand-crafted items this is a perfect venue to sell your wares! Local business owners are also invited to have a Business Information Booth. This is an opportunity to showcase your business. The cost for a craft or business booth is $40; applications can be found on the website.
Business sponsorships and proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit an irrigation and beautification project at the Lincroft Village Green, free community events at the Green, and the LVGA Community Scholarships. Business owners and community members who are interested in supporting the fundraising effort can provide sponsorship at levels starting at $50.
Be sure to bring your beach chair and blankets and relax. No outside food or beverage is allowed; no coolers please. Brookdale is a smoke-free and alcohol-free college campus.
