4th Annual Food Truck Festival is Canceled for 2020


The 4th Annual Gardner Food Truck Festival committee have made the decision to cancel the annual celebration amid the spreading coronavirus outbreak. The decision follows Gov. Charlie Baker’s declaration of an extended stay at home advisory until May 18th. Given the state of emergency declared by Governor Baker and in an abundance of caution, the City of Gardner and the Gardner Food Truck Committee have jointly decided to cancel the Gardner Food Truck Festival scheduled for Saturday June, 15th.

The public health situation regarding COVID-19 will continue to be monitored and evaluated. We look forward to having a Fantastic event come 2021!

A message from The City’s Economic Development Coordinator- Maribel Cruz

I would like to take a moment to share my sincere hope that you and your families are staying healthy and safe as our state and nation cope with the COVID-19 outbreak.

The City of Gardner is actively supporting government issued community safety measures and doing everything possible to help slow the spread so we can return to some level of normalcy. For us, this includes cancelling the 4th Annual Gardner Food Truck Festival.

The unprecedented health crisis has caused many hardships and challenges, but what is truly inspiring and heartening is to see the outpouring of love, compassion, hope as families bond together to support one another. I am confident that our Great City of Gardner will be an example of how through adversity we become stronger.

The City of Gardner commits to the health and safety of our residents and visitors, and looks forward to having our event even bigger and better for next year.

Stay safe, healthy and above all in good energy.
