The Frisco Downtown Merchants Association is pleased to announce the 5th Annual Frisco StrEATs Gourmet Food Truck & Music Festival, presented by the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, April 9th from 12pm – 7pm in downtown Frisco.
Frisco StrEATS is a free, family-friendly event featuring some of DFW’s most popular gourmet food trucks, quality live music and a large number of vendor booths. The spring event has drawn larger and larger crowds throughout the years, as area families and food truck groupies have gathered to enjoy great food, trendy melodies and a beer garden offering beer and wine for purchase.
This year, the Merchants Association will host at least 23 food trucks, 30% more than last year, 20-30 local vendors and six bands, along with a new arts area featuring local artists and their creative work. “The Frisco StrEATS event has become a premier spring attraction in downtown Frisco,” said Chris Johnson, president of the Frisco Downtown Merchants Association. “Last year’s festival drew more than 12,000 people to downtown Frisco, and with the additional trucks and attractions, we are expecting and even larger crowd this year.”
The music line-up will again be anchored by the popular DFW dance and wedding band Moving Colors, with other sets throughout the day by Patrick Casey, Matthew Schaffer, Rich Ellis, Iron Horse Express and Philipaloosa.
“We are so grateful to our sponsors this year,” added Johnson. “The support we have received allows us to continue to grow the event by offering additional programming, attractions, food trucks, an expanded children’s area and great music. It’s truly a spring celebration of historic downtown, and I know every who attends is going to have a great time.”
The title sponsor, the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center, is joined in support of Frisco StrEATS by Watermere at Frisco, Legacy Plumbing, Classique Jewelers, Renew Family Dentistry, Fence Makeovers, Mosquito Joe and Patti Ann’s Flowers.
Free pedicab transportation will be available from Frisco city hall garage to and from the event venue.
