About the Festival- The MDA Eats N Beats Food Truck and Music Festival is an event dedicated to improving the lives of those individuals and their families coping with the debilitating effects of Muscular Dystrophy, ALS, and other related diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger. Eats N Beats will unite MDA families, businesses, community leaders, and corporate sponsors in support of this important cause.
This is the second year of the festival. Last year MDA Eats N Beats brought over 1,700 people to the festival and raised over $13,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Eats N Beats is a supporting event for the Harley Davidson Ride for Life, which has a 31 year history of raising funds to support MDA in their efforts to support those who are fighting neuromuscular disease. The Ride for Life raises over $1 million annually for the Greater Philadelphia MDA.
During the event guests will be able to enjoy many styles of food, and beer, and enjoy live music throughout the day. There will be demonstrations by skilled artisans, and vendors of other goods and services. Also featured will be an upscale auction, as well as entertainment for children. The event will be held on the grounds of The Roebling Museum, and guests will also be able to see the history of Roebling Village and the local industry that built the Brooklyn Bridge and so many other important structures.
Your support is crucial to help MDA Eats N Beats raise the funds and awareness needed to accelerate treatments and cures that will bring strength, independence and life to kids and adults living with life-threatening diseases.
