A Food Truck Pop-Up Event at the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society will be held in honor of Iron & Grain’s second anniversary.
On Thursday May, 4, 2017, Iron & Grain Co. will host a pop-up event at the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society to celebrate its two-year anniversary.
Guests will enjoy tasty cuisine and brews from food trucks including Iron & Grain’s ’59 Chevy, Yard Bird, and Greekin’ Out. This outdoor event will take place from 5-8 p.m. The rain date is Thursday, May 11, 2017.
Iron & Grain is one of West Hartford’s newest mobile food establishments. The food truck is housed in a refurbished 1959 Chevy Viking and comes complete with a wood fired oven to cook fresh and locally sourced foods over an open flame. Tate Norden, with cousin and co-founder chef Adam Belward, opened Iron & Grain Co. in 2015 and they have been busy ever since bringing the truck to farmers markets and events across the state. Belward, a veteran who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan is a graduate from the Culinary Institute of America.
A portion of the proceeds of the evening will go to the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society. Norden, a West Hartford resident, chose to help the museum because he has a “real interest in supporting organizations that make West Hartford special.” The opportunity to partner with a like-minded and innovative organization and, in particular, support education, made the choice of the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society “obvious” said Norden.
There is a $10 cover charge for admission, which includes a $5 voucher toward a food truck purchase. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Tickets are limited and available at www.noahwebster.yapsody.com.
Alcohol is available to those 21 years or older. A valid ID will be required.
The museum would like to thank the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and the Greater Hartford Arts Council for their continued support.
