NASHUA – Food trucks from across New England will roll into Holman Stadium for the Third Annual Southern New Hampshire Food Truck Festival this weekend.

The festival is set for 1-6 p.m. Saturday at the stadium, 67 Amherst St.

This year’s festival will feature 18 trucks, each with its own unique products for patrons to try. The event will feature more than food, as there will be plenty of family fun, according to Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce Marketing Director Kimberly Zambrello.

“We expect a really good turn out and we have a ton of action going on,” she said.

Zambrello said last year, they had about 1,300 people roll through the festival, but they expect the number to climb beyond 2,000 this year.

Other than a range of food options, the event will also feature live entertainment from The Rampage Trio and more music from a live DJ. There will also be more features geared toward kids, such as giant yard games. Both the Manchester Monarchs and Silver Knights mascots will be present for pictures.

Additionally, there will be vendor tables set up, as well as raffles and prizes.

To complete the family fun and wash down all of the tasty treats, Zambrello said there will also be a craft beer truck at the stadium.

“We have a company coming for face painting for the kids, so it’s more interactive for families than last year,” Zambrello said.

However, while these activities are going on, there will also be a 32-team bean bag toss tournament. Zambrello said 603 Cornhole is organizing the tournament with the chamber, and tickets to participate in the tournament can be found online.

The festival is presented by iUGO, which is the chamber’s young professional group. For more information and purchasing tickets, visit www.eventbrite.com/e/3rd-annual-southern-nh-food-truck-festival-tickets-45958780951.
