Event for FOODIES!

Havre de Grace’s Inaugural 
International Food Truck Festival

Sept. 16, 2018 from noon – 6pm

What’s a ‘foodie?” Well, we say anyone who enjoys eating. But Wikipedia says:

foodie is a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food and who eats food not out of hunger but due to their interest or hobby . The terms “gastronome” and “gourmand” define the same thing, i.e. a person who enjoys food for pleasure.
