Food Truck Festival Coming to Myrtle Beach on April 1

Food Truck Festival Myrtle BeachOfficials with the Myrtle Beach Downtown Redevelopment Corporation and the City of Myrtle Beach have announced a food truck festival that will be coming this April.

I have to admit, I love a meal from a food truck! For some reason a good food truck offers something that tastes so much better. Most food trucks have a theme or offer one specialty, so getting the chance to move from truck to truck during this festival is a food truck lovers heaven!

In a recent news release, officials said they were excited to bring a festival aimed to “tempt everyone’s taste buds” to the area.

“Food trucks are the latest culinary craze and growing in popularity, so add that to the beautiful backdrop of our Boardwalk, and we feel this is a recipe for success that everyone downtown can benefit from,” said Lauren Clever with the Myrtle Beach Downtown Redevelopment Corporation.

Officials said the event will also feature live entertainment, beer and wine, kid’s activities, and vendors ranging from arts and crafts to businesses and non-profits. Non-mobile restaurant vendors will also be on site.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, April 1 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. It will take place on the Burroughs and Chapin Pavilion Place between 8th and 9th Avenues North in the Oceanfront Boardwalk District of Myrtle Beach.

The event will be free to attend.

In October, the Myrtle Beach Seafood Festival will return for a second year and will be 2 days this year. The second day will include a car show, live music entertainment and kid friendly activities. This festival will also be free to attend.

If that wasn’t enough, there are also specialty desserts like the “grilled banana fluffanutta” and frappes, floats, and Wahlcoctions.

There is even a Wahlburgers store to pick up a T-shirt or pint glass as a way to remember the experience.

“We’re excited to bring a bit of Boston to Broadway,” said Greg Pranzo, Wahlburgers franchise owner for the Carolinas. “Mark, Donnie and Paul have created the perfect menu, from our mouth-watering burgers to our homestyle sides. The flavor combos keep people coming back.”

The subject of an A&E reality show, Wahlburgers offers a fun, casual music-filled atmosphere where guests, like family, share great food, a few laughs and lots of love. While its walls celebrate the story through photos and words of the Wahlberg brothers’ life journeys from Dorchester, Mass. neighborhood kids to rising chef and international superstars, it’s the food at Wahlburgers that takes center stage.

Crafted by Chef Paul and served with heartfelt hospitality, the chef inspired menu features a variety of fresh burgers, house made condiments, crispy haddock, seared chicken and vegetarian options. Other signature items include Mom’s Sloppy Joe, thin crispy onion rings, tater tots and thick creamy frappes and floats. Gluten free options are available.
