Food Truck First (Second) Thursday in July

20140605_191518The Brewery District of Columbus is pleased to announce “Food Truck First Thursdays” in and around Brewmasters Gate on Front and Liberty Streets. The second of the monthly events is NOT the “first” Thursday of July due to the July 4th holiday. Instead it will be Thursday, July 10th from 4:30-9:00pm. The event is sponsored by the Brewery District Trade Association (BDTA) and the Central Ohio Food Truck Association (COFTA).


Local band, Honey Compass, will provide entertainment and World of Beer will provide beer stations inside Brewmasters Gate. Profits from beer sales will benefit both of the nonprofit sponsor organizations. Central Ohio’s finest food trucks will offer an excellent selection of eats. Admission is free. Other Brewery District businesses will be on hand offering discounts and promoting their businesses.


The BDTA consists of District businesses and meets monthly. Julie Klein of Shadowbox live serves President of the organization.


“The first First Thursday food truck event in June was a great success and we hope to continue to grow and build on the event each month. It’s a blast and a great night out in the District,” said Klein. “Come on down, enjoy the food trucks, have a beer and check out all the District businesses!”




First Thursday Food Truck Event are now scheduled to take place August 7, September 4, October 2 & November 6, 2014!
COFTA was established to provide a platform for advocacy, communication and education for its members and the community it serves. Driving the organization is President, Brian Reed of MOJO TaGO.
