Monday, July 9, 2018

Folks, the 6th Annual Columbia StrEAT Food Truck Fest is just weeks away on July 28th, and we’ve got a whole host of talented musicians ready to make your festivities a fun and unforgettable time!

In fact, there’s so many local entertainers showing off their musical chops on Columbia Street, we figured you could use a quick guide to where you can find them both online and at the event (No big deal: you’re welcome Internet).

Enough with the intro, on with the show!
