We’re Proud Sponsors of Bloktoberfest

We at Foobooz love fall festivals and last year we had so much fun at Christian Street’s Bloktoberfest that this year we’ve signed on as the official food sponsor.

Check out the release after the jump, and keep checking out Foobooz for food and drink related details on the October 16th block party.

We’re incredibly proud to announce that Foobooz, Philadelphia’s authority on food, drink and deals, and Bloktoberfest, Philadelphia’s authority on block parties, will be joining forces to help shine a light on some of our city’s very best food trucks.

On October 16th from noon to 8PM, Bloktoberfest will once again transform the 2000 block of Christian Street into an all-day celebration of beer, food, music, and the South of South Neighborhood. Festival attendees can expect thirty-three different seasonal craft beers on tap, a headline musical performance from The Budos Band, and an eclectic mix of food trucks converging from all around the city. This time, however, Foobooz is joining on as the festival’s official Food Sponsor, and providing readers with a chance to learn much more about this exclusive batch of mobile merchants. In addition to all the fantastic regular content you already find on Foobooz – bar and restaurant openings, reviews, culinary events, special offers, job listings, and industry gossip – you’ll soon notice a special section dedicated exclusively to updates on all of the trucks featured at Bloktoberfest. Stay in the loop about menu changes, current locations, and the latest additions to the festival’s food truck cast. All in one convenient place, all on the one site that covers Philly food and booze like nowhere else.

Now in it’s second year, Bloktoberfest is an all ages, free-to-attend event, with proceeds from beer sales benefiting architectural restoration work for Shiloh Baptist Church. Foobooz founder Arthur Etchells is a resident of the South of South Neighborhood, and looks forward to Bloktoberfest. “After last year’s event I wanted Foobooz to become part of this block party. I look forward to a great day, great food, drink and music.” Josh Dubin, the festival’s Production Director, is equally excited about the partnership. “Having Foobooz provide this kind of support for Bloktoberfest is simply tremendous,” Dubin says. “Arthur is an expert at identifying good times in this city, and a good time is all we’re aiming to be.”
