A taste of Indonesia in Caboolture
Caboolture’s night sky will be filled with the aromatic aromas of Rendang, nasi goreng and steaming hot noodles when the third Food Trucks @ The Village Green event rolls into town.
This year’s Food Trucks @ The Village Green event will coincide with an Indonesian Festival marking Indonesia’s 73rd Independence Day, and showcasing musicians, dancers and performers.
Food Trucks @ The Village Green event organiser David Bostock said the fusion of the two events would bring beautiful aromas, tastes and music from around the world to Caboolture.
“Food trucks and crowd numbers have doubled since the Food Trucks @ The Village Green event kicked off last month and we can’t wait to bring even more instagram-worthy ‘Street Eats’ and great vibes to the CBD,” Mr Bostock said.
“We have doubled the number of food trucks to an impressive list of 15 vendors in a few short weeks which shows this vibrant food, music and arts event continues to grow in popularity.
“We’ve also seen crowd numbers increase by about 200 with each event. The food truck craze is alive and well in Caboolture and it’s not hard to see why.
“For as little as $10 you can savour dishes from around the world with your family and the best part about food trucks is that customers can meet and chat to the chef. You can’t get that accessibility at a sit-down restaurant.
“These events are about bringing communities across the Moreton Bay Region together to the Heart of Caboolture as a great destination to relax, eat and just have a great time.
“We’ve got incredible local talent providing wonderful live music, scrumptious food from around the world and free entertainment for the kids plus picnic options and twilight markets to add to a terrific night-time experience.
“This event is also about working closely with the food truck vendors so consumers have a great choice of culinary skills at their doorstep in the heart of Caboolture.”
Moreton Bay Regional Council Division 3 Councillor Adam Hain said since the completion of the $290,000 green link project on James Street, the green space had turned into a bustling hive of activity bringing with it new business opportunities among other great activities.
“I’m passionate about creating a bustling, vibrant night-time economy in Caboolture, so holding events like this that give residents and visitors the opportunity to come together to unwind with their friends and family is key to that vision,” Cr Hain said.
“The face of our CBD is changing and it’s evident residents and visitors are really embracing that change.
“This is more than just food; these events are about delivering a sense of theatre and vibrancy to invigorate community pride of our town and Caboolture families and visitors alike are really taking well to the idea.
“I have been to these events myself and let me tell you the vibe at the Village Green is just so cool and carefree.
“The multicultural food trucks bring the pulse of the world’s gastronomy to the community giving people the opportunity to try unique flavours they might not have ever tried before or even had the chance to.
“The sky’s the limit for anyone who wants to use the space: it’s right in the heart of the CBD, it’s got plenty of room for activations.”
The next Food Trucks @ The Village Green will be held on August 4 coinciding with an Indonesian Festival marking Indonesia’s 73rd Independence Day.
