The festival is “an important fund-raiser” for Trackside “due to continued budget cuts,” Trackside Executive Director Mark Ketley told The Bulletin, “but more importantly, it’s another great day planned for our residents.”

Ketley said the festival will be a “great day for the community with terrific food, fun time for kids, live music all day and interesting crafts,” and he is “looking forward to a unique event for Wilton, with an opportunity to attend a terrific summer event for all.”

Admission is $10 per car and $5 for walk-ins, with proceeds going to support the teen center. The admission fee “gives you access to the festival, live music and kids park,” said Ketley. Visitors will have to pay for the food and drinks at each food truck.
