At every turn a different ‘kitchen’ will present itself by the Frankston Pier this month at the fourth Seaside Street Food Festival, where tastebuds will be dazzled by something sweet or savoury in the four-day global street food festivities.
Rich, culinary experiences from Greek, Italian and Portuguese cuisines through to Americana are just some of the flavours to be enjoyed from almost 50 vendors across the four days. A handy Where the Truck Passport will be available for $20, which will give you entry to the festival plus $50 worth of foodie delights from participating vendors.
The vibrant setting will be joined by roving entertainers, rides and an outdoor cinema screening family-friendly flicks that will keep the little ones entertained. Games by the beach will range from giant Jenga and Connect Four to a weather-permitting almighty water fight.
According to Frankston Mayor Michael O’Reilly, the partnership with Melbourne food sensation The Food Truck Festival will draw foodies to enjoy diverse cuisines, craft beer, wine and cider. “The Seaside Street Food Festival has become a household name in Frankston and each year it continues to increase visitation, highlighting the city as a destination for events and food-based experiences,” he said.
Festival brand marketing and PR manager Hannah Godlevsky said attendance had reached 45,000 previously. “Frankston has everything an event requires: the sunshine, the beach, the relaxed, laid-back vibes of a beachside community,” she said.
The festival on the Frankston Waterfront will be Halloween-friendly at its opening on Thursday, October 31, from 5-10pm and will be open from 11am-10pm on the following Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Entry is $5, with children under 12 admitted free, including a free face painting.
