Drive into the Tuckerton Seaport for “Truck”erton Food Truck & Brew Fest on Saturday, August 15 from 11am-9pm and Sunday, August 16from 11am-7pm. The Seaport will host 15-20 gourmet food trucks over the two days from all over the East Coast, bringing a flavor blast to the Jersey shore. Have you ever tried a sandwich made on potato skins instead of a roll? How about grilled alligator legs? What about the ooey gooey deliciousness of Wisconsin Battered Cheese Curds? Who has room for a fat sandwich loaded with onion rings and French fries? Be sure to save some room for authentic Belgian waffles with toppings imported from France. Also, enjoy live music throughout the day and the craft beer garden with NJ’s favorites on tap, featuring local favorite Pinelands Brewing Co. The Garden State’s Valenzano Winery will also be selling local wines by the bottle. Limited-edition official “Truck”erton T-Shirts will be available for purchase the day of the event but are expected to sell out quickly. You definitely do not want to miss this two-day event! Load the family in the car and set the GPS for the Tuckerton Seaport.
