Milwaukee Food Truck & Craft Beer Festival: May 26

Are you a foodie? Then get ready to feast at the second annual Milwaukee Food Truck & Craft Beer Festival, coming to the Waukesha County Expo Center this weekend.

This family-friendly event features food from places such as Smokin L's BBQ, Pig Tailz, SushiGo and Wholesome Rollers. Then grab a caffeinated drink at Nimble Coffee Bar and a dessert (or five) from The Cupcake-A-Rhee, Granny's Real Wisconsin Custard or Mother Wilma's Marshmallow Factory. Adult beverages are also available from a multitude of places such as Lakefront Brewery, Brenner Brewing, The Explorium Brewpub, Port Huron Brewing Company and Cider Boys. Gluten free and vegetarian options will be available for a wide range of eaters as well.

When you're not chowing down, you may bring lawn chairs to relax alongside yard games, a caricature artist, a DJ and face painters. And a bonus pro-tip: Bring empty coolers and food containers to bring home future meals or tasty leftovers!
