Funding for the Entertainment Stage has been made possible by sponsorship from Newfield National Bank. Lidl is the sponsor of the Kid’s Corner.

Our Food Truck Festival on The Ave events the last two years were off the charts—a wide variety of great food and a festive atmosphere,” said Main Street Vineland Executive Director Russell Swanson. We plan to exceed even those successes this year. We’re also so excited about having Dawson back again to head up our entertainment lineup for our festival,” Swanson said. “He has always left the crowd cheering and his star has been rising steadily. You’ll be in for another great treat this year.”

The festivals of the past two years have surpassed the 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 still bigger and better.

“We’ve brought over 9,000 people to The Ave each year and so many of the participating vendors want to come back this year,” he said. “Vineland has become a destination for food trucks from near and far. Come early, stay late, and enjoy!
