Bring Your Appetite to East Goshen Park

August 22, 2019

Everyone’s favorite summer festival is back! Bring your appetite for fun (and food and music!) to the East Goshen Food Truck and Music Festival Aug. 24. All the excitement happens at East Goshen Township Park, about 10 minutes from your Chestnut Square apartment.

From 4-8 p.m., mix and mingle with neighbors as you while away a summer afternoon noshing on some of the best of the local food scene, all while taking in lots of live entertainment. As its name suggests, the festival has a major focus on food—with more than a dozen food trucks keeping the crowd snacking all afternoon. The food selections run the gamut and offer something for festival-goers of all tastes—from cheesesteaks to pitas and Indian to Italian, and if the temps are soaring, cool off with gelato or shaved ice.

Bring a blanket or lawn chairs and settle in with your selections to enjoy the day’s performances. Three bands will take the stage throughout the event: The Swing Time Dolls, Little Red Rooster Band and Not Quitting Our Day Jobs. The first specializes in 40s swing, while the second features blues guitar music and the third is known for its classic rock covers—and all are local! Stay for one or all to get a taste of the local West Chester music scene. Another local favorite, Chaddsford Winery, will be on hand, serving up its award-winning drinks until 7 p.m.

The event has become a staple in the West Chester summer calendar, offering an exciting look at the outstanding culinary and music talent that abounds in the town. So round up your crew and head over to the park for some summer fun close to home!
