Live Thoroughbred racing returns to Suffolk Downs on Saturday and Sunday July 8 and 9, for the first of three weekend “Racing and Food Truck Festival” events taking place at the track. This year’s events will take place on July 8/July 9, August 5/August 6 and September 2/September 3. The weekend festivals will include seven food trucks, craft beer, and family fun activities including pony rides, a bounce house and face painting.
“These will be three weekends of celebration,” says Lou Raffetto, a consultant for the New England Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association (HBPA), who is overseeing the planning of the festival. “We are inviting everyone who loves horses, loves Suffolk Downs, loves food trucks and craft beer and just wants to spend the day or the weekend with us having family fun. We really see it as one big party!”
Some of Boston’s favorite food trucks will be a big part of these race weekends. Attendees can enjoy a wide variety of foods from seven different Boston-area trucks! Coordinated by Food Truck Festivals of America, some of the popular food trucks rolling into the track for the July weekend include Trolley Dogs and Frozen Hoagies.
