FOOD TRUCK & CRAFT BEER FESTIVALS TO LAUNCH IN PALM BEACH, FL IN FEBRUARY AND END IN ASHEVILLE, NC IN NOVEMBER
Online PR News – 13-January-2017 – Boston, MA – Boston, MA -- 2016 was the biggest year yet for Boston-based event company Food Truck Festivals of America (FTFA) – and 2017 promises to far surpass it. The country’s largest touring food truck & craft beer festival company, FTFA is branching out to new markets in 2017 including Palm Beach, FL, Little Rock, AR, Milwaukee, WI, New Bedford, MA, Louisville, KY, Rochester, NY and Asheville, NC.
“Initially our festivals took place solely in New England, our home base,” says Anne-Marie Aigner, founder of FTFA. “But the weather was not conducive to having festivals year-round. So, we started chasing the sun and now we’re in great food and beer loving communities throughout the U.S. from February to November. It promises to be an exciting year!”
