The Baakens Food Truck Funday (BFTF) enters 2019 with the first night market of the Summer season.

Building on the success of previous events, BFTF returns to the streets of Port Elizabeth on Saturday, 16 February 2019. Situated in Lower Valley Road, Baakens Valley, the fun starts at 4pm and runs until 9pm.

The ever-growing community event will see 20 food trucks, tuk-tuks and trailers showcase their unique offerings in the heart of Baakens Valley. From traditional Neapolitan pizzas, to home-made curries, vegetarian meals and Asian cuisine, locals and visitors are in for a feast of flavours.

“We’re bringing back the evening installments of Baakens Food Truck Funday for the summer season. Families can come for the Bay’s biggest street food party in the heart of the city. Bring all your relatives (fur friends included) and come and chill in this beautiful outdoor setting,” says co-organizer Grant Foong.

Baakens Food Truck Funday provides a platform for local artists to showcase their talents, with performances by Beats by Hand, Celso Fabbri and Emile Naidu to name a few.

A selection of kiddies’ entertainment will also be available and there will also be bar facilities available from Richmond Hill Brewing Company, Benn Koppen and Brickmakers Distilling Co and a craft market curated by WERK_.

“The family market has no entry fee, all meals will be capped at R55 and there is a definite focus on a quality, fun, family environment,” concluded Foong.

Cleanliness and a green mentality will prevail at every Baakens Food Truck Friday. Visitors are encouraged to bring along their picnic blankets and camping chairs and there is limited space available inside the WERK_ workshop in the case of inclement weather.
