Food Trucks A Go Go is hosting a variety of summer events including June 30 in Santa Cruz and weekly Taco Tuesdays at Soquel’s Blue Ball Park (officially named Anna Jean Cummings Park).

FOOD TRUCK FRIDAYS

June 30’s event, at Santa Cruz’s San Lorenzo Park (137 Dakota Ave.), has free admission. There will be a beer and wine garden with refreshments from Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing and Bargetto. Food truck participants will include Ate3One, G’s Tacos, Saucey’z, and Lindsey’s Palate Pleasures. Dinner and drinks will be available from 5 to 8 p.m. At the family-friendly event, there is lots of space for groups to enjoy the evening. There will be a bluegrass theme and lawn games. People are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets, and there will be tables and chairs available for seating. The City of Santa Cruz, FOPAR (Friends of Parks and Recreation) and Food Trucks A Go Go are collaborating to put on this event.

 

This is the first of four Food Truck Fridays at San Lorenzo Park: the remaining dates are July 28, August 18 and September 29.

After LaLi Kates of Aunt LaLi’s Mobile Cafe formed the business Food Trucks A Go Go last year, she launched a monthly food truck event at Scotts Valley’s Skypark. The community response was even better than she had imagined, and she was soon organizing a variety of events, sometimes on Friday nights and sometimes during Sunday brunch.

“We are so excited to be launching these new locations and present the unique and delicious food from our local food trucks,” shared Kates. “The food trucks will rotate to offer a variety of food options at each of the locations.”

At the end of this week, on Friday July 29, Food Trucks A Go Go is partnering with Event Santa Cruz for “Summer Nights & Edible Delights” 5-9 p.m. at the Delaware Addition. Admission is $3. The line-up includes: Holopono, Ate3One, G’s Tacos, Saucey’z, Conscious Creations, Humble Sea Brewing Company and Stockwell Cellars.
