Passaic County Hosts Northern NJ Empanada Festival

(CLIFTON, NJ) -- On Saturday, June 25th, the County of Passaic, Friends of Passaic County Parks, Inc, and MegaBite Events are hosting another Food Truck Festival – this year’s theme is the Northern New Jersey Empanadas. The event will run from 11:00am– 7:00pm at Weasel Brook Park in Clifton, New Jersey. 

MegaBite Events is looking forward to bringing the first ever Northern New Jersey Empanada Festival to Passaic County,” said Howard Rosenblatt, founder of MegaBite Events. “At this inaugural event, we will crown the Northern New Jersey Empanada Champion.” 

This event will feature approximately 20 food trucks and vendors to tantalize a variety of taste buds. The delectable offerings can be washed down with New Jersey craft beer, wine, hard seltzers and soft drinks. 

Entertainment at the Festival will feature live music by Naughty Humphrey, and Grand Theft Audio, an extreme racing remote racetrack, an air-soft shooting gallery, extreme bubble ball, a Jersey Shore game trailer, craft vendors, a henna tattoo artist, and more. 

“This is a tremendous opportunity for families and empanada lovers to explore Weasel Brook Park while enjoying some excellent food,” said John Bartlett, the Passaic County Commissioner who has been a member of the Friends of Passaic County Parks, Inc. since its founding in 2010. “It’s just one of many programs that can be enjoyed in Passaic County’s parks during the course of a year.”
