Arts Riot Truck Stop
May 18th – September 28th – Every Friday 5 – 10PM
ArtsRiot is proud to announce our 6th season of the South End Truck Stop! It all began with two crazy vendors (Southern Smoke & Taco Muchacho) and a chess set. Fast forward six years and Burlington has its very own Food Truck ‘scene’. To those of you who have been along for the ride, thank you, thank you, thank you! We wouldn’t be where we are without you. We have also seen a variety of new food offerings appear every year, a trend we can’t wait to continue this season!
Every Friday, hundreds of people people come down to ArtsRiot to enjoy live entertainment, cold beer, and delicious food. We have some stellar programming in store for this year’s Truck Stop and will be offering FREE shows inside ArtsRiot.
Beyond the vendors, our event site is critical to the atmosphere and charisma of the event. The site is the Howard Space, nestled in the South End Arts District, and is home to 62 tenants who all share the parking lot we descend upon each Friday afternoon. Many of these folks have been around much longer than the 5 years of Truck Stop events. While many are impacted by the event, they’ve ultimately been super supportive, not only allowing it to happen, but helping make it happen. Our neighbors are painters, welders, masons, metalsmiths, glassblowers, pianists, guitarists, bakers, organizers, and all around craftspeople. They shape the creative spirit that gives Truck Stop its great energy.
Accolades for this summertime series have come from New York Times Travel, Burlington Free Press, Best of Burlington Magazine, Seven Days, Seven Daysies Awards, Yankee – New England’s Magazine, Take Magazine, Edible Green Mountains, VT Digger, VermontVacation.com, Trip Advisor, Yelp, and countless other platforms where we have collectively gained outrageous support.
This year, we’ll be offering FREE MUSIC inside and outside EVERY FRIDAY. Visit our calendar at artsriot.com/events to learn more about Friday night entertainment at AR.
