The Boujee Foodie Con Festival

Two weekends ago on June 1st, I went to the Boujee Foodie Con Festival in Oceanport. Located in a part of Fort Monmouth called Russell Hall, it featured music, games, food, drinks and all kinds of other attractions.

As you pass through the entrance, you’re immediately greeted by an array of food trucks. There were trucks operated by The Butcher’s Block, Nip & Tuck, Dim Sum World, Mi Casa Tu Casa, Gigi’s Pizza, Mr. Q’s Island Eats, Waffle Cabin, “Best Day Ever” Ice Cream, and of course, Your Sister’s Balls.

After progressing through the concrete food truck section, you’re soon brought into a grassy tented area with twice the amount of vendors. Some of these include Mav’s  Top Buns, Local 130 Seafood, “Almost Home” General Store, Pretty & Tasty Macarons, Alfonso’s Catering, Ladyfingers Bakery, Trusted Taters, Green’s Natural Foods, and most notably, Bella Ciao Pizza who was selling foot-long mozzarella sticks.

What seemed to attract the most people, however, was the concert stage and the neighboring booze tent. On both days, they had an impressive lineup of musicians: So Watt, Tess Cameron, The Earth Monkeys, Rubix Cube, along with Laura Nynens.

The nearby booze tent not only offered beers and mixed drinks for consumption, but it was also a great source of shade from the sun and heat. It made watching the concert all the more enjoyable, and they provided tall round tables to stand up and eat any food purchased from the vendors.

Of course, no festival is complete without amusements for children. There were a few firetrucks near the entrance that allowed kids to go inside and check them out, and the grassy tented area had arcade-style games to play as well.

There were plenty of games for adults to play too. I saw people playing pickleball on the concrete, and there was also a dunk tank booth with a target outside to hit and sink the person in the booth.

To top it all off, they had a car show that looked absolutely incredible. Some of the cars on display had doors that open upwards, reminding me of something you would only see in the movies.

Overall, it was a very entertaining experience. The weather was perfect, though it got pretty warm later in the afternoon. Regardless, I would definitely go again next year.

Keep an eye out for the Winter Boujee Holiday Market later this year. Interested vendors can email for more information.      FaceBook
