Food Vendors:  our applications are CLOSED for our 2024 festival.

For our attendees:

Feel free to bring a picnic basket … or relax and show up stress-free, empty-handed, and enjoy and support our wonderful local food vendors and their delicious offerings!

We do NOT offer your typical “carnival food” (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

We purposefully curate local restaurants in the Essex County area:

  • from Italian sausage and peppers to Jamaican jerk chicken;
  • from Long Island lobster rolls to NYC hot dogs;
  • from Pad Thai to MX tacos;
  • from fresh-squeezed lemonade to cold, cold ice cream treats.

Several of our vendors will also offer vegetarian and vegan options.  We are quite sure you will find food for any palate from our local kitchens.

Our food vendors in 2023 were:

  • General store
  • Dani’s kettle corn
  • Maglione’s Italian Ices
  • Planted by Crissy
  • Chapters Tea
  • The Lemon Bar
  • Puras Paletas
  • Umberto’s II
  • Lemonade Blends & Funnel Cakes
  • Cruzanusvi BBQ
  • Roy’s Fish
  • Pops Chicken and Grill, LLC
  • Miti Miti Latin Street food
  • Tandori Chef
  • Latin Bites Food Truck
  • Oxtail Gravy Truck
  • Tio Eddie’s
  • Veganish Food Truck
  • Pokok Thai Cuisine
  • The Urban Cone (SUNDAY only)

NOTE:  This list of past food vendors does not imply that these vendors will be automatically included in future years.  Every year, we curate a balance of local and diverse food vendors through our application process.
