2016 MI's Big Country Fest will be bringing back Food Trucks to its attractions
The Country Fest’s food vending is bringing back the food trucks. The Frankenmuth Food Truck Rally will be rolling into town to offer a variety of food to festival-goers. A food truck is a large vehicle equipped to cook and sell food. Jeanna Rogner, Festival President started this event last year to provide food to the MI's Big Country Fest patrons. She expects to have 4-6 trucks to be operational during festival hours- 5pm-Midnight on Friday and Saturday, October 21 & 22, 2016 in Heritage Park, Frankenmuth.
There will be no admission charge for the food truck vending area and only $5 admission charge to the festival. The festival will provide entertainment from SIX of the area’s most popular Country/Western bands rotating continuously through the evening, bar, bloody mary bar, mechanical bull, free line dancing lessons, retail vendors, activities, and more.
Food trucks are extremely popular in most large cities around the country. This event will be an avenue for a rural area to experience this trend. According to Statistic Brain Research Institute there are over 4,000 trucks across the country who serve at street locations, events, work sites and shopping malls. The average cost per order across the country is $12.40. Typically there is a line at any good food truck but it moves quickly. Each truck has a following that will track their next serving location via social media and websites. You can watch the Country Festival’s website for more information on each truck that will be in attendance.
“I’m excited to bring food trucks back again this year. It's still a new thing in our area and an exciting addition to the festival.” Jeanna Rogner- Festival President
