The Myrtle Beach Downtown Redevelopment Corporation and the City of Myrtle Beach have announced a new culinary festival: The Myrtle Beach Food Truck Festival!
It is scheduled for Saturday, April 1 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and will be free to attend. The festival will be located on the Burroughs and Chapin Pavilion Place between 8th and 9th Avenues North in the Oceanfront Boardwalk District.
In addition to a multitude of delicious food trucks, there will be live entertainment, beer and wine with craft selections, kid’s activities, and arts & craft, business and non-profit vendors. The event will also accept non-mobile restaurant vendors.
We are so excited because culinary events are one of our favorite things to do in Myrtle Beach!
“Food trucks are the latest culinary craze and growing in popularity, so add that to the beautiful backdrop of our Boardwalk, and we feel this is a recipe for success that everyone downtown can benefit from,” said Lauren Clever with the Myrtle Beach Downtown Redevelopment Corporation.
The second annual Myrtle Beach Seafood Festival is also in the calendar and will grow to two days on Oct. 6-7. Success of the inaugural event led to the festival expanding its footprint to include the oceanfront lot this year, in addition to adding another day and a car show.
“Both festivals will be free to attend, family-friendly and will spotlight how the culinary scene is growing in the Myrtle Beach area,” Clever said.
Coastal Tailgating will be hosting corn hole tournaments on Saturdays of both festivals.
