“Whether you’re craving gourmet tacos, pizza, seafood or fries, you can be certain there will be plenty of delicious food for all tastes, along with some of South Jersey’s finest craft brews and wines,” said Burlington County Commissioner Allison Eckel, the liaison to the Department of Resource Conservation and Parks. “The Burlington County Craft Beer & Food Truck Festival is another great event organized by our parks staff and the perfect way to welcome the fall season.”
The event comes on the heels of Burlington County’s Summer Restaurant Week featuring more than 115 participating restaurants, eateries, food trucks and craft beverage businesses.
“Small businesses are more than just a name on a sign. Restaurants, food trucks and breweries bring visitors to our downtowns, and they serve as engines for economic development and growth,” Hopson said. “By helping them, we’re helping our own communities grow and remain strong and vibrant, so we’re proud to hold events like Restaurant Week and the Craft Beer & Food Truck Festival to help promote and generate business for them.”
