Believe it or not...the StrEATS Committe has been hard at work organizing the 2nd Annual Downtown Frisco StrEATS! We are so excited to bring back this awesome event to Downtown in Spring 2013!!! We will have so many new activities, more space and more food trucks. We Every single comment, suggestion, complaint from last years event was read and we are doing our best to address everything.

A few people suggested changing the location of the event, however, the purpose of Downtown Frisco StrEATS is to promote and bring awareness to our historic Downtown, so that is the only change we are not doing.

We will be bringing you with more information in the months to come, but for now, check out our awesome logo created by local artist, Kristen Johnson.

Inaugural Downtown Frisco StrEATS

On April 28th, 2012 Downtown Frisco held its first Downtown Frisco StrEATS - Gourmet Food Truck & Music Festival. It was an unexpected hot, but, beautiful spring day. Also unexpected: the number of people that attended this event. We estimated about 3,000 to 5,000 people attended when we originally expected about 1,000! Regardless, we think it was not bad for our first event and our minimal budget (very minimal!). We now know where we need to tweak things to make this event better for next time. We had a great "StrEATS Team" organizing and awesome volunteers who helped out. This event wouldn't have happened without the support of the Main Street Merchants Association and the Downtown Advisory Board, the amazing Food Trucks that participated and the musicians that provided the entertainment. The best part of Downtown Frisco StrEATS is seeing everyone enjoying the food and the music in Downtown, the heart of Frisco. We hope to continue this Downtown tradition in the years to come!
