THE GREAT FOOD TRUCK RALLY RETURNS
Pilgrim Congregational Church Hosts Oak Park’s Great Food Truck Rally 2015
Gourmet food trucks from around the Chicago area will once again converge on Oak Park for the Great Food Truck Rally. This year’s event will take place on Sunday, June 7, from 4:00 to 7:00 PM in the parking lot of Pilgrim Congregational Church at 460 Lake Street in Oak Park. Entry is free.
“For the third year in a row, Pilgrim Church is delighted to bring these fabulous food trucks to Oak Park,” said Senior Pastor Sally Iberg. This year 14 vendors will serve up a wide range of savories and sweets. Savory items will include American, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Latin, Mexican, and Polish options. Dessert choices will include cupcakes, Whoopie pies, and cake pops.
Live music will be provided, and Pilgrim will also open its doors to host guided tours of its historic church building. Designed by the architectural firm of Patton and Fisher, Pilgrim’s Queen Anne Revival Style building dates from 1889 and reached its final form in 1900. The building is the oldest structure continuously used for worship in Oak Park and is on the Register of Historic Places.
The Great Food Truck Rally is a one-day-only event and will take place rain or shine. Parking will be available in the parking garage at Oak Park River Forest High School just west of the church. For more details, including a full list of the participating food trucks, visit the event website at www.foodtrucks-oakpark.info or follow us on Twitter @OP_TruckRally.
