Food Truck Rally Comes to Downtown Howell

Food Trucks unite in downtown Howell for tailgate-themed fundraiser

Join Howell Main Street Inc. and food trucks from all across the state on Saturday, November 12, as this non-profit downtown revitalization and community-driven powerhouse kicks-off their annual fundraising efforts. All proceeds from Howell’s inaugural Food Truck event will benefit Howell Main Street Inc.'s year-round volunteer-led downtown projects.  The Food Truck Rally will have a tailgate theme for football season and feature tasty Food Truck food, an Eternity Brewing biergarten (for adults 21+), and tailgate games will be available for guests to enjoy from 12:00 p.m.-3:00p.m. in the Depot Public parking lot located off of N. Walnut St. behind Hi-Tech Lock and the Walnut Street Marketplace.

There is no entrance fee for the event, however tickets are required and available to purchase on the day of the event for those wishing to enjoy beverages from the biergarten area. Beverage tickets are $5 each. Locally-brewed root beer will also be available for purchase in the biergarten, with those tickets available at 2 for $5. Residents and visitors are encouraged to come down in your tailgate gear to try some delicious food from Michigan-based food trucks!

“The responses from early social media postings have demonstrated an outpouring of support from the community and visitors who love good food.” states Howell Main Street and DDA Director, Cathleen Edgerly. “Participating downtown restaurants and pubs are also getting in on the fun and participating by offering Food Truck Rally attendees, $5 off their $25 purchase at Cleary’s Pub, Diamonds Steakhouse, and the Silver Pig.”

Participating Food Trucks include: Fortune Cooking, Heaven on a Roll, My Little Honey Pot, Pie Hole Pizza, Tamale Rose, The Torch, and Tony’s Dogs. For more information, visit
