The Fairfield Food Truck Festival has raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Fairfield Public Library since debuting in 2017. All proceeds from the Festival are used to fund community-facing programs and initiatives at the library, such as a new public-address system for the Rotary Room and the mobile computer lab.
Last year’s proceeds were used to improve the children’s library at the Fairfield Woods Branch Library.
“The Town of Fairfield is pleased to join with the Friends of Fairfield Public Library on this wonderful event. What a great way to wrap up an enjoyable summer!” Fairfield First Selectwoman Brenda Kupchick said.
The 2022 Festival will feature at least 17 of the area’s top food trucks. Many Festival favorites are returning, including DrewbaQ, Bubble & Brew Tea and Rice & Beans. Expect plenty of new trucks offering exciting menu choices.
