Much loved Adelaide food event to celebrate its ‘Forkth’ birthday
Fork on the Road is turning four and is throwing a big street food party to celebrate. Cooking up a storm in their iconic kitchens on wheels, some of Adelaide’s favourite food truck vendors will offer a smorgasbord of tantalising tastes at the Light Square event on Friday 18 November from 5pm.
Along with everything slow-cooked, pulled, fried, grilled, baked and wok-tossed, food lovers will be able to wash it all down with drinks from over twenty craft breweries, local wine and cider makers.
After the 4 years, there’s a bunch of the originals still trading and they’ll be part of the Forkth Birthday celebration. This Fork will feature around 30 mobile food vendors and as a special treat over 20 craft breweries, wineries and cider makers, plus music and loads of fun.
One of trucks around from the start was Chimichurri Grill, Greg and Sarah said “Fork on the Road has played a integral part in the shaping and success of our business. We attended the very first Fork after being in business only 2 months and have grown alongside this awesome community event. I have always marvelled at Joe’s ability to bring everyone together to enjoy what Adelaide’s small food business’s have to offer”.
“It’s still so fresh in my mind when, two months into starting our food truck business we attended the first Fork on the Road. We sold out within the first 45 minutes and from then on vowed never to sell out again! Without Fork, we would never have become the thriving local business we are today. Fork has breathed a breath of fresh air into Adelaide’s languishing festival scene. It provides the community with a casual place to gather for great food, fun and friendship!”
The partnership with craft beer, wine and cider is something Fork has done a few times now. The craft beer scene is another amazing South Australian sector that well and truly punching above its own weight.
Marc Huber from Mismatch Brewing says “A great evening for all us small craft beer and cider producers. Lot’s of fun and a chance for punters to try something new and get to know the people behind the beers and ciders. Joe has really put together a unique event that supports this local industry.”
In short “Awesome beers, ciders and food trucks. What more could you want?!” said Marc.
Fork on the Road founder and passionate food truck advocate, Joe Noone is excited to celebrate this milestone with the thousands of followers who have traipsed all over the city and suburbs to the popular Fork events.
“Four years ago I had the crazy idea to try my little bit of making a difference and rolled the dice on pulling together Adelaide’s first food truck event,” says Joe.
“I had no idea how well the first one would work, let alone envisage it growing to over 45 events attended by more than 150,000 people.”
Joe is grateful for all of the support, advice and love he has received from Fork fans and is looking forward to sharing a bite and a beverage with as many of them as possible on the night.
“If you’ve ever eaten from a food truck, or you’ve never eaten from a food truck, be there!”
