May is Nashville Street Food Month!

May is Nashville Street Food Month!

4.26.16

The Nashville Food Truck Association will celebrate the 4th annual Nashville Street Food Month!  We're at an all-time high with more than 70 members, and we'll be on the streets all month serving street food.  

Officially running through the entire month of May, the kickoff will take place at “Street Food Thursdays,” May 5, where 18 trucks will serve lunch on Deaderick Street in downtown Nashville.  Join us!

“A conservative estimate is that NFTA members will serve more than 2,000 shifts during the month of May alone, feeding more than half a million people,” said Dallas Shaw, NFTA president.  “May unofficially kicks off street food season in Nashville, and you’ll see trucks all over town at parks, festivals, offices, parties, and events through the year.  We’re so thankful to Nashville’s residents for continuing to visit the trucks and allowing street food in Nashville to thrive.”

“Street Food Thursdays” will take place every week during May and June, featuring a rotating roster of 18 trucks each week, at 4th & Deaderick downtown, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Other regular locations to visit food trucks include Musicians Corner, Elmington Park, Centennial Park, Sevier Park, Nashville Farmers Market, Franklin Farmers Market, and food truck zones in Downtown Nashville. 

Special events include Winchester Dogwood Festival, May 6-8; Eat the Street in Franklin featuring 40 trucks, May 6; Battle in the Burbs in Hendersonville, May 7; Sevier Park Fest, May 7; Children Are People Springfest in Hendersonville, May 14; East Nashville Crawfish Bash, May 21; Super Cool Fun Fest at Riverfront Park, May 28.

These are just a few events.  We'll be posting schedules to Facebook and Twitter!  We'll also post menu pictures and special events! 

The NFTA will donate a portion of member proceeds from May sales to longtime event partner Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.  The NFTA will collect member donations and present a check at the conclusion of Nashville Street Food Month.
