Street-food connoisseurs, this is the event for you. The Rochester Public Market (280 N. Union St.) is gathering up some of Rochester's favorite mobile vending units for the Food Truck Rodeo. On Thursday, June 21, 5-9 p.m., you'll be able to sample food from such local trucks as La Petit Poutine, The Sammich Guy, Cheese & Confused (the menu includes bacon-wrapped tater tots; you've been warned), Potatoes to Go, and many others.
After munching on this eclectic assortment of food, grab some local brew to wash it down. As part of Rochester Real Beer Week, members of the Upstate New York Homebrewers Association will be holding a summer beer competition, featuring selections from Rohrbach's along with other micro-brewers.
No rodeo would be complete without some music. Throughout the evening there will be sets by local musicians, including (appropriately) The Public Market Band featuring Dick Storms. There will not be seating available, so if you plan on sticking around for the whole night of festivities, make sure to bring a lawn chair. For more information, call the Public Market Office at 428-6907 or visit cityofrochester.gov/publicmarket.
