Habitat for Humanity to host ‘Pensacola Food Truck Festival’ this weekend
by Zora Davis, Staff Writer
The Pensacola Habitat for Humanity will be hosting its fourth annual food truck festival this Friday and Saturday. The event is free to attend, and money will only be needed for food trucks.
The event will be located at the Vince J. Whibbs Sr. Community Maritime Park.
Habitat for Humanity is known for serving the community, improving homes for people in their neighborhoods and overall making the community better.
“I’ve been working with Habitat for Humanity for years, and it’s one of the most amazing places ever,” Sarah Jenkins said. “You get to meet kind people and also help them and their situations, and it just means the world to me. I love this event because it gets the city together to not only have an amazing time but to also give back.”
This weekend’s event is the chance for Habitat for Humanity to get the Pensacola community together for a great time with some amazing food.
On Friday, the event will be held from 5-10 p.m. and on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Friday will be the start of the festival, when a few of the food trucks will come out. Local entertainment will get the weekend started, then Saturday there will be many more food trucks for everyone to try.
There will be over 20 food trucks at this festival, and maybe some of your favorites, including Wrighteous Eats, Smallcakes, and Dr. Sno’s Shaved Ice.
You’ll be walking as you’re eating from truck to truck, so you don’t have to worry about any extra calories because you’ll be getting those extra steps in.
“I’m so excited to attend this year’s food truck festival,” Pensacola resident Samantha Davis said. “I went last year with my friends and the food was amazing. I’m ready to try the new trucks they’ll be having this year.”
The entertainment for the weekend will include artists such as Dean Owens and Will Kimbrough, with other performers to be announced later.
Pensacola’s food truck festival was named Inweekly’s best of the coast in 2018.
This is a charity event, and proceeds will go towards Habitat for Humanity, so they can continue to provide services to different communities within Pensacola.
