Applications being taken for Street Food Village at culinary festival
As part of the International Food Truck Festival in Limerick over the June Bank Holiday Weekend from the 1st to 5th June 2017, a special Autism/ Sensory-friendly evening is due to take place on Thursday 1st June.
This will involve a:
- Reduction in numbers controlled by our security.
- Music level to appropriate decibel level.
- Vintage carnival with reduced lighting and speed.
- Quite areas of the park to relax.
We would love to invite adults/children who may benefit from this evening to the festival.
The festival is still open to the general public however numbers will be reduced to facilitate the event.
The long term aim is to include sensory elements to the autism friendly night each year going forward.
The Limerick International Food Truck Festival is just around the corner and the excitement is building. There will truly be a culinary offering like no other in Ireland this Summer.
An explosion of international cuisine during the event as more than 60 food trucks from 14 countries take part in the European Food Truck Association’s annual festival along with local and national traders
Festival goers will be treated to some of the most appetising, innovative, original and exotic foods imaginable with a new twist on some old classics like pizza, pasta, fries and gourmet sandwiches along with many never before seen dishes on Irish shores.
Highlights will include a Belgian artisan chocolate truck, preparing some spectacular chocolate dishes from scratch, a lobster burger truck and ones serving shark and crocodile treats with even a truck specialising in insect dishes as well as tasty dishes from oriental, American, French, Mexican, BBQ trucks and much more.
