The new Jefferson Fest – Food Truck Festival, Concert, and Fireworks event is replacing the traditional Jefferson Township Day that ran its course for 30 years; out with the old and in with the new and food trucks are an essential part of this fresh approach to a township wide celebration.
Saturday, July 8 will be a fresh, innovative, and exhilarating day in Jefferson Township as a fleet of food trucks roll into town and set up their colorful trucks on the fields of the Jefferson Township High School at 1010 Weldon Road, Milton/Oak Ridge, ready to serve up their delicious menus starting at 5:30 pm.
These food truck vendors will be on site starting at 5:30 pm and stay through the evening concert:

- Surf & Turf – lobster rolls, surf and turf rolls, steak sandwiches, shrimp tacos, burgers, vegetarian rolls and veggie burgers (all items can be done “Gluten-Free” and served on a bed of delicious sautéed citrus kale)
