The City of Evanston hosted its second annual Food Truck Fest in the Eighth Ward’s Brummel Park on July 26. The event, paired with the Starlight Concert performance of Andre Williams and the Gold Stars, drew a crowd of more 600 people to the park and adjacent playground area to enjoy food and music on a warm summer evening.

Five food trucks participated in the fest including Hummingbird Kitchen, Tamale Spaceship, Sweet Ride Chi, Taquero Fusion and 5411 Empanadas. Food offerings were popular, with trucks serving lines of 40 or more people throughout the evening.

Eighth Ward Alderman Ann Rainey said, “The Brummel Park Annual Food Truck Fest and Concert is one of those events that invites everyone, and where all have a wonderful time.”

Upcoming events include “Sing-Along Grease” in Brummel Park on Aug. 25 and Bike the Ridge on Sept. 30.
