Here are all the food trucks coming to Kingston, Hanover this summer


KINGSTON – Waffles, beer and live music will come together at the Hilltop Athletic Association in Kingston for the return of weekly food truck festivals on Wednesday, April 13.

From 4 to 8 p.m. every Wednesday through the end of October, food trucks will gather at  65 Pottle St. to sell snacks, entrees and drinks to people looking to get outside and support small businesses. 

Katie Keefe, the president of the South Shore Food Truck Association and owner of the Ellie’s Treats ice cream truck, said visitors can expect to see about 10 food trucks, a full cash bar and live music. The association will provide play space and toys for children.

“It will be a perfect space for a picnic,” Keefe said.

Gracie Grace & All The Goodboys will perform on opening night, April 13. A  full schedule of music and other events is  on the South Shore Food Truck Association’s Facebook page.

Food Truck Tuesday will return for the fifth year to Forge Pond Park in Hanover each week from 4 to 7 p.m. starting May 3. Keefe estimated 700 to 2,000 visitors will attend each night. 

“It’s a huge boost for small businesses,” she said.
