New Orleans’ first-ever food truck park coming to St. Claude

Written by  My House NOLA
The St. Claude Food Truck Park, presented by St. Claude Main Street and My House NOLA, will showcase two of New Orleans’ favorite things – food and music – with the area’s first and only food truck park.
 
From October 2–November 8, the St. Claude Food Truck Park will pop-up in a vacant lot at the corner of St. Claude Avenue and Feliciana Street. The park will come to life each Thursday-Saturday night from 6:00pm–9:00pm, offering neighborhood residents and visitors from across the city an opportunity to come together and dine on a variety of unique cuisines.
There will be at least three food trucks at the park each night, rotating among the area’s most popular “meals on wheels.” Also available for purchase will be domestic and specialty beers that pair with the weekend’s food truck offerings.
 
Picnic tables will provide seating and places to gather under strings of holiday-style lights. In addition to live local bands, entertainment will be provided by members of SCMS’ two youth programs – New Orleans Youth Sound Experience (NOYSE) and NOLA Mix. The food truck park will also feature portable restroom facilities, bike parking and security.
 
“My House NOLA is a Creative Culinary Production company that coordinates, produces, and promotes events all over New Orleans,” said Barrie Schwartz, CEO/Founder. “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.”
 
In addition to the food trucks, three neighborhood pop-up food retailers will also be participating in the program: EmpanadaNOLA (Carolina Gallop), Koreole (Kayti Williams), and Laurel’s Licks Ice Cream (Laurel Santos).  The three vendors are participants in the 2014 St. Claude Main Street Pop-Up Retail Program. The retail initiative, which is funded in part by a grant from the Greater New Orleans Foundation, features 10 independent retailers that were selected to participate in the six month program.
 
The food truck park is made possible by sponsors including: Southern Eagle Distributing and Anheuser-Busch, River Parish Disposal, the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation, and Keller Williams Realty’s Ariana-Middleton Team.
 
Dates of Operation:
October 2-4; 9-11; 16-18; 23-25; 30-31;
November 1; 6-8
 
Event Location/Information:
St. Claude Avenue & Feliciana Street
 
Special Notes:
No outside food or drinks are allowed, and please leave pets at home.
