Glenside Knight Food Truck Festival & Mural Lighting Moved to October 18

The annual Glenside Knight Food Truck Festival has been moved to Thursday, October 18 due to inclement weather. All activities will remain the same, and the event will tempt taste buds with cuisine from wonderful local eateries and approximately 26 regional food trucks and food from local restaurants.

The Glenside Knight Food Truck Festival will offer community members a food-filled night out on the town. Part of Arcadia University’s Inauguration Week, the food truck festival will also host a parade led by Arcadia President Ajay Nair and the mural lighting at Glenside Station.

Arcadia’s new president, Dr. Ajay Nair, will lead students from campus at Limekiln Pike, down Easton Road to the festival in celebration of Arcadia’s Inauguration Week at 5:45 pm. The Cheltenham High School marching band will lead Dr. Nair and students into Glenside to the mural. In addition to Dr. Nair, Cheltenham Township Commissioner Drew Sharkey will be walking with students into Glenside.

This year’s festivities will include the lighting of  the second mural to welcome Arcadia’s new president, Dr. Ajay Nair. The Mural Lighting Ceremony at 6:45 pm will include Arcadia students and renowned muralist and adjunct professor David Guinn, as they light the new LED mural across from “Bits and Pieces,” a mural that Arcadia students and Guinn created last year. Together, the murals represent the character of the community and were supported by Arcadia and the Glenside community.

Please note that Easton Road between Waverly Road and Mt. Carmel Ave., as well as Glenside Ave., will be closed to vehicular traffic beginning at 4 p.m.

The Glenside Knight Food Truck Festival is sponsored by the Downtown Glenside Community Partnership, Arcadia University, and Cheltenham Township.
