MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Despite challenges faced by the service industry during the COVID-19 pandemic, EatMGM Restaurant Week is returning!
The sixth annual event will take place Aug. 14-23 and will feature 10 days of online promotions, exclusive video content from chefs and the launch of ‘Food Truck Fridays’, in partnership with the city of Montgomery.
“Montgomery’s restaurants serve authentic, local food, and they are a cornerstone of our community and an integral part of Montgomery’s tourism economy,” says Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Senior Vice President Dawn Hathcock. “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, EatMGM Restaurant Week will look slightly different from years past; however, now more than ever restaurants need our support, and this event is the perfect opportunity to give back to these small businesses.”
Below is a list of events planned for EatMGM 2020:
- Food Truck Fridays: August 14 and 21 - EatMGM is partnering with the City of Montgomery and Montgomery’s Downtown Business Association to highlight the newly designated food truck parking area of Rotary Park with Food Truck Friday’s.
- Takeout Tuesday: August 18 - Locals are encouraged to order takeout for pick-up and delivery all day in support of local restaurants.
