The flavor of Tampa Bay’s best food vendors is beyond definition. This area’s food festivals continue to be can’t-miss events brimming with briskets, Cuban sandwiches, lump crab cakes and irresistable vegan fare. Now, the delicious fun is headed to Pinellas Park with the Florida Food & Brews Festival presented by Localshops1.

More than 40 food trucks, restaurants and snack shops will be slinging the best bites in the region — and each dish runs at about $5 each. Eat your heart out, Tampa Bay.

What can localvores expect to sample at the event?

Churro sundaes and Cuban sandwiches are on the menu

Anju Korean Gastrotruck will be on hand serving their fabulous k-pops, which are boneless hand-battered chicken bites tossed in Anju’s signature sauce. Served with steamed sticky rice and soy garlic.

Churroland is a place we’d like to live in one day. In the meantime, we’ll settle for the sweet, sugary treats from this churro-centric food truck. They serve an insanely good stuffed giant churro with sugar cinnamon and your choice of toppings. The churro sundae with creamy vanilla ice cream, strawberry jam and Hershey’s chocolate fudge, finished with whipped topping and cherry is another must-try at the event.

Can you really beat kettle corn? The dessert with an infectious scent is made with TLC courtesy of Damm That’s Good food truck. All of their products are gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO and kosher.

Stoked Poke is a way for visitors to take a walk on the lighter side. Their build your own bowls are a culinary adventure worth taking. We always add seaweed salad, pineapple and ahi tuna to ours.

Is it really a food festival without funnel cake? The Funnel Cake Man will be in attendance to ensure all visitors get a taste of the iconic treat. Available varieties include red velvet, peach cobbler, Oreo cookie and pistachio.

Live music and entertainment to complement the food fest

Other vendors include Hyppo Gourmet Ice Pops, The Funnel Cake Man, Tampa Beer Works, Pipo’s Cuban Cafe and Mermosa Winery & Boutique. It’s an eclectic mix of the best this region and this state has to offer.

Live music and entertainment is also planned for the Food & Brews Festival. The Betty Fox Band and Geri X are among the announced performers.
