Food Truck Festival + Tag Sale Appetizer for 2015 Daffodil Festival in Meriden

25 Mar

The Daffodil Festival in Meriden has quickly become one of the most anticipated festivals all-year long and marks the start of beautiful, warmer weather. This year the 37th festival goes down at Hubbard Park on 4/25 from 10-9 and 4/26 from 10-5. There will be a non-profit food tent for all your nomming needs, arts and crafts, a boutique, children’s rides, plenty of live bands, a parade, and fireworks on Saturday night. We’ve included a full schedule at the end of the post for you. 

New this year is the pre-celebration weekend that features Connecticut’s largest tag sale and, yes, a food truck festival! Just come by Hubbard Park in Meriden on 4/18 from 9-7 and/or 4/19 from 10-7. It might be a very good idea to bring cash because you never know if a food truck or vendor will be taking cash only. As of now, the U.S. Food Truck Fest who ran a very successful Halloween-themed event last year plans to have about 25 trux.
