Food Festivals Front And Center On Monmouth Park's 2013 Event Schedule

Posted Tuesday, May 7, 2013

 

 

– Monmouth Park’s 2013 events schedule will yet again be highlighted by four of the track’s ever-popular food festivals including the now two-day Jersey Shore Food Truck Wars on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26. 

            Held for the first time in 2012, the food truck wars attracted a crowd of over 23,000 as a one-day event.  The festival has expanded to two days for the 2013 season. 

            “We already have over two dozen food trucks signed on to be here,” said Pete Verdee, vice president of marketing at Monmouth.  “It proved a great success last year, one we’re looking to build on in 2013 and in the years to come.” 

            In addition to the Jersey Shore Food Truck Wars, Monmouth Park will again play host to fan-favorite festivals including: 

  

·        The 43rd Annual NJ Irish Festival – Sunday, June 9 

·        Win & Wine Weekend featuring Dessert Wars – Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23 

·        Shore Chef Crab Cake Cook-Off – Saturday, August 17 and Sunday, August 18 

·        BBQ & Craft Beer Festival – Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1 

·        NJ Thoroughbred Festival – Saturday, September 21 

·        Oktoberfest – Saturday, September 28 

  

Monmouth Park will be home to a pair of giveaways during its 2013 season.  Coinciding with Grade 1 United Nations Day on Saturday, July 6, all paying fans will receive a free Monmouth Park T-shirt.  On NJ Thoroughbred Festival Day, a free cooler bag will be given away. 

 New to the event schedule in 2013 is the first-ever Joes vs. Jocks Mini Golf Tournament.  The event will serve as the kick-off to Haskell weekend and take place at Monmouth Park’s new Bluegrass Mini Golf. 

Also new in 2013 is Ladies Day to be held on Saturday, August 10 featuring a best hat contest and much more. 

Handicappers will yet again get a chance to show their skills at three contests throughout the season – the first on Sunday, July 7 which offers two seats to the 2014 DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship in Las Vegas. 

As has become a Monmouth Park tradition, the track will continue to offer Family Fun Days throughout the meeting, with a range of free activities that includes pony rides, face painting, clowns and inflatable playgrounds.
