Wynwood Art Walk Food Truck Roundup Canceled Again

In-the-Light

Another Art Walk around the corner, another canceled Art Walk Food Truck Roundup.

The Second Saturdays Art Walk in Wynwood will once again be without food trucks.

According to our friends over at Beached Miami, an email from Richard Hales, the event’s organizer, to the food truck community, the city is once again to blame.

Unfortunately the Wynwood event is not going to happen this month on the lot; the City will not give the permission … See you hopefully next month.

This isn’t the first time this happens. They had this same issue back in March.

If your looking to get your grub on though during Art Walk this weekend, be on the look out for mobile food vendors and maybe even some trucks parked throughout the streets and driveways.

We hope this all gets resolved for next month’s events.
