Funding for the Entertainment Stage has been made possible by sponsorship from Newfield National Bank. Little Lamb Preschool of Vineland is the sponsor again this year of the Kids Corner.

“Last year’s Food Truck Festival proved why the concept is so popular—a wide variety of great food and a festive atmosphere,” said Main Street Vineland Executive Director Russell Swanson. “We’re also so excited about having Dawson back to head up our entertainment package for our festival,” Swanson said. “He left the crowd cheering last year and his star has been rising steadily since. You’ll be in for a great treat this year.”

Food Truck Festival Returns To VinelandLast year’s Food Truck Festival on The Ave surpassed the first-year expectations of everyone, including the experts, according to Main Street Vineland Associate Director Robert Scarpa, and the intention is to make this year’s event even bigger and better.

“We brought over 9,000 people to The Ave at last year’s event—phenomenal for a first-year festival—and so many of the participating vendors want to come back this year,” he said. “We’re building on that success to surpass what we did before. Come early, stay late, and enjoy!”

Get Cozy at Boniello's
When you go out to eat, if you're anything like me, you hope to connect not only with the food but with the staff and establishment. That's what you get at the BYOB Boniello's in Riverdale, NJ.
Big Menu at Bocca Coal Fired Bistro
I lived in Northern NJ all my life and had never been to Margate. Atlantic City of course but never Margate. If you are familiar with the town, then you know it’s the home of the popular tourist attraction and historical landmark, Lucy the Elephant. Lucy celebrated her 187th birthday the weekend of July 20th. A friend and I headed down to Margate to meet Lucy and do the tour.
