Event Parking
We highly encourage you to park at the public parking lot located at City Hall. If you look at the map, it appears to be far away, but it actually is a short 1/2 mile walk. And on your way to the Frisco StrEATS, you can stop by the Classic Car show sponsored by Frisco Automotive. After you eat all the Kimchee Fries and  Grilled Cheese Sandwiches at StrEATS, you'll really need the walk back anyway. By the time you approach your car, you might even stop by and get a snow cone from the Frisco Snow Cone lady...why not? Who's counting calories on Saturday? I'm not!
OH! Did i mention we'll have pedicabs?! Well, if you don't want to walk, flag down a pedicab! They're free, but they do take tips. They're so fun to ride too! WEEEeeeee!
There are also two public parking lots in downtown that are available for use. See the map below. And we will offer limited handicap parking at the event site on Third Street.

Wow! We are a little over a month away until the 2nd Annual Downtown Frisco StrEATS! We have so many new things for this years event on April 20th.

#1: Our poster came out awesome! Thanks to Frisco Style Magazine, our amazing sponsor, and Kristen Johnson, our wonderful in-house artist, who created the logo. Kristen will also be showcasing her art at Frisco StrEATS!

#2:  The location of the event will be in the same general area, but like our belly's will be on April 20th, we are expanding! Here's the comparison:

#3:  This year we are so happy to help out our neighbors and Frisco Family Services (FFS) by asking all of you to bring a non-perishable food item for the food pantry. Get some good karma and give back! For each food item (or each dollar of cash/gift card) donated, you will get a raffle ticket for a chance to win some very nice prizes, such as tickets to sporting events (Dallas Stars, FC Dallas, Roughriders, etc.), and gift cards to some of our local Downtown shops. While FFS will gladly take any non-perishable food item, they are in need of boxed meals, baking good, oils, baby items. For a complete list click on this link: FFS Pantry

#4:  Maaaaan, do we have some entertainment for you and your entire family this year. Do you have kidlets? We have a children's area! Do you like to shop? We have funky and fun vendors, plus all the boutiques on Main Street. Do you like to  nerd out on video games? We have a freakin' game truck! Do you like to have a brewski and listen to music? We have a beer garden with live music (plus two other stages)! Do you like to dance? We have a mobile DJ truck! Do you like cars? There will be a classic car show a block away! Do you like to eat? This is Downtown Frisco StrEATS!!! Fourteen Gourmet food trucks! What else? Did we miss anything? Oh, you can still bring your furry friend...and your dogs too...HA!

#5:  Parking. You know how you go to, for example, the mall during Christmas, or Six Flags, or Disneyland...and you have to walk. Yeah...well, you'll have to walk. But people don't walk enough these days so we are helping with your health.  You can park in the street in Downtown, or you can park in the parking lot behind City Hall (it's only half a mile). We will have Pedi-cabs riding around offering free rides (they do accept tips, though!).

It's gonna to be a good time! See you all at Downtown Frisco StrEATs!!!

* Sincere apologies for the over-use of exclamation points. I'm just so excited, and NO, I can't hide it!!!!
