New Food Festival For Fort Myers

There is so much to do in Southwest Florida this time of year with Spring Training, Spring Break, art shows, and all kinds of outdoor activities. But what about the foodies who have to wait twice as long to get into a restaurant right now?

Finally a festival just for you (and me), the first ever Spring Training and Food Truck Craft Beer Festival, Saturday (3/21/15).

Some twenty food trucks are gathering at JetBlue Park, the Fort Myers home of the Boston Red Sox, to tickle our tastebuds with the likes of BBQ, Latin cuisine, seafood, ice cream and more.

The Sizzle Truck
The Sizzle Truck got it's start at the Shoppes at Vanderbilt Farmers Market in Naples, hoping for their jalapeƱo slaw on Saturday. You'll also get to taste from trucks like the Traveling Tomato, the Ravenous Rhino, Piled Hi, What the French, Crazydilla, Croz's Surf Shack and more.

While you may've seen some of these trucks at various events in the area, they've never been together in one big spot like this, until now.

For several years, Food Truck Festivals of America has organized these fun food events, mostly in the New England area. So it makes sense to follow their world famous baseball team to Fort Myers for a party.

If you want to avoid the crowds and long lines, buy a VIP ticket for $20. It grants access an hour early and beer is included. Everyone else gets in at Noon for a $5 ticket.  See you Saturday!

  2. I happened to be lucky that my friend couldn't find a date for an event so he generously took me with him, which happened to be one of the best experience for me in recent times. I was lucky enough to see event space San Francisco. If you get a chance to check this out please do so.
