The Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society will host food truck pop-up nights this summer.


Lazy, crazy, hazy days of summer, we salute you!

Join the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society for two food truck nights featuring tasty food and beverages. You don’t have to cook out to eat en plein air! On July 26 and Aug. 23, from 5-9 p.m., let the pros make your meals. Food trucks like Iron & Grain Co., Brasato, and the Farmington Farm Truck have you covered.

In 2017, the museum unveiled a series of food truck pop-up nights. A portion of the proceeds of each evening goes to the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society to support its educational mission.

Tate Norden, with co-founder and chef Adam Belward, opened Iron & Grain Co. in 2015 and brought the trucks to the museum. They have a vested “interest in supporting organizations that make West Hartford special.” The opportunity to partner with a like-minded and innovative organization and, in particular, to support education, made the choice of the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society “obvious,” said Norden.

Iron & Grain Co. will be there for both food truck nights. On July 26, the Farmington Farm Truck will bring local produce to the pop-up. On Aug. 23, Brasato Italian Street Cuisine will serve up fresh Italian eats. Dessert trucks and other food trucks will be announced as the pop-up dates approach.

There is a $10 per person cover charge for admission, which includes a $5 voucher toward a food truck purchase. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

Tickets are available at noahwebster.yapsody.com. Alcohol is available to those 21 years or older. A valid ID will be required. Children under 10 will be admitted at no charge.

Noah’s Hands-on Discovery Learning Center,” located inside the museum, will be open for family use.

Iron & Grain Co. is available for bookings at both private and public events. Please visit www.irongrainco.com or call 860-840-2179 for additional information.

The museum would like to thank the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and the Greater Hartford Arts Council for their continued support.

The Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society is a cultural destination where citizens can learn to understand and appreciate the past. The museum preserves the birthplace of Noah Webster, the founding father, educator, author, and lexicographer who taught generations of Americans what it means to be American. This National Historic Landmark is also a repository for the history of West Hartford, the community that molded Noah Webster’s future and is still thriving over 250 years later. The historic house and exhibit spaces are open daily 1 until 4 p.m. For information on the museum’s extensive school and public programs, please visit www.noahwebsterhouse.org or call 860-521-5362.
