February 21, 2018 – (Key West, FL).  Key West Art & Historical Society Hosts 3nd Annual Key West Food Truck Festival at Fort East Martello

What could be better than a day-long concert in a field by the sea, complete with a bevy of food trucks for the choosing?  On Saturday, March 10 from 12pm-8pm, Key West Art & Historical Society presents the 3rd annual Key West food truck festival, “Food Trucks in Paradise 2018,” an event that transforms Fort East Martello’s parade grounds into a family-friendly musical feast with the tasty delights of Key West’s top-notch food trucks and the grooving tunes of local and international acts.

“It’s a great excuse to get family and friends together in a relaxing, entertaining way,” says Society Operations Manager Shawn Cowles.

Be sure to come hungry—Key West Food Truck Fest founder and co-producer Clint Steckly will park his ever-tasty Triano’s Taco food truck on site along with Sandy’s Café, Leila’s Latin Food, Beach Bites, Flamingo Street, Jimmy Sno, and other mobile-vendor faves.  Performers Fish Out of Water, Skank,The Copper Tones, Oracle Blue, J-Sneez, Mi Primo, and Bahama Village Music Program will serve up their own individual flavors of musical beats throughout the day and vendors including Kassy B Fine Art, Key West Glass Works, and Deb & Ally Designs will have unique designs available as mementos of the day.

Bring your lawn chairs and picnic blankets, invite your friends, and come have a blast! This smorgasbord of great music and delicious food along with a beer tent and games such as lazer tag, nerf wars, corn hole, and a bounce house are sure to guarantee a fun time for the whole family. Free parking.  Friendly dogs on leashes are welcome, too.
