The Warwick Food Truck Festival has announced tentative dates for its summer 2021 event.

The community fund-raising event features a wide variety of food-truck fare, desserts and sweets, locally crafted brews and live music each evening. The festival is currently planned for the first Thursday of each summer month: June 3, July 1 and Aug. 5.

The festival’s ability to open is strictly dependent upon COVID-19 procedures and festival organizers are paying close attention to CDC and New York State guidelines regarding large outdoor gatherings. Currently the state limits large outdoor gatherings to 200 people. Festival organizers will continue to monitor guidelines in the coming months to determine whether the event is able to move forward as planned.

“It’s with an abundance of optimism as well as an abundance of caution that we’re evaluating the festival’s ability to open this year,” said Festival Organizer Tracy Gregoire. “This is the Warwick Food Truck Festival’s fifth year, and we’d love to celebrate by hosting this summer’s dates. At the same time, we take the health and safety of our community very seriously, and that will come first as we evaluate our options and determine whether we will open. We’ll continue to share updates with the community.”

The Warwick Food Truck Festival takes place at St. Stephen the First Martyr Church in Warwick.
