NEW ORLEANS, LA – Look out Austin! NOLA is about to get her first food truck park. A vacant lot on the corner of St. Claude Avenue and Feliciana Street will provide an outdoor food court populated by the trendy trucks from October 2 – November 8. Of course, this is Louisiana not Texas; so, the venue will also feature beer and food.

The area will be outfitted with picnic tables and strings of Christmas lights. In addition, there will be portapotties, bike parking, and security. The park will operate Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 6p.m. to 9p.m.

Live music will be performed by two youth programs administered by St. Claude Main Street. The featured bands will be New Orleans Youth Sound Experience (NOYSE) and NOLA Mix.

The project is the brainchild of My House NOLA, a city wide culinary production company. Founder Barrie Schwartz explains, “We have not had an event in the Bywater since 2013, and we are excited to start back up again and work with St. Claude Main Street by bringing food trucks and a food park to the neighborhood. We hope to engage with the neighborhood and provide a space for community to gather and enjoy the diverse food truck scene of the city.”

Each night, three different trucks will be serving their fare. The meals-on-wheels will be joined by three pop-ups. EmpanadaNOLA (Carolina Gallop), Koreole (Kayti Williams), and Laurel’s Licks Ice Cream (Laurel Santos) will also be cooking up munchies for the masses.
