Due to COVID event restrictions, this year’s StreetEats looked very different than past years – but we’re thrilled to say it was a success for our community and our businesses.
The Chamber had two goals with this year’s event: 1) to provide a fun diversion for our local and Greater Cincinnati community; and 2) to support our local businesses in a variety of ways. We were able to promote 16 local businesses through bringing people to our area and encouraging them to visit our local shops & restaurants; promotions prior to and during the event; coupons handed out to attendees; and booths on-site. We’ve had great feedback from participants – just two pieces of feedback include one business saying their promotion did the best ever and another saying they were excited to be seeing coupons coming in.
A total of nine food trucks participated over the two days of the event, offering everything from tacos to funnel cakes. Riverside Park in Milford was host to the event this year, providing plenty of space for social distancing and a beautiful park for people to enjoy their food.
Special thanks go out to RDI, which sponsored not only this mini-event but our Summer Tour during the month of August; and our Community Trustees, who support the Chamber on an annual basis to help us bring events and benefits to even the smallest businesses: Castrucci Chevrolet, City of Milford, Park National Bank, RDI.
