The Eloy Chamber of Commerce held its first ever Food Truck Fiesta on Cinco De Mayo, right next door to its office at 515 N. Main St.
“As the Chamber, we wanted to do something different,” says Andrew Rodriguez, Executive Director. “Since none of the surrounding cities were doing anything, we felt that we wanted to do this event.”
Rodriguez says events like this bring the community together with good food while helping local vendors.
Event participants included: Tacos ATM, Deadlift Coffee, La Dona Mexicali Taste, Fry’s Kettle Corn, I & C Kitchen, AKA Breads, Dulces Calavera and Big Country’s Cool Down.
“It was a great event,” Rodriguez says. “Many of our vendors sold out before it ended, and it was great to see people come from different cities. We plan to host this event every year and from this year’s attendance we will expect it to grow — especially with new residents coming in.”
The Eloy Chamber also is working on future events including a monthly farmers market and annual golf tournament.
