The Lowcountry Jaycees are hosting the 4th annual Beaufort Food Truck Festival from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 9 on Paris Avenue in Port Royal.

The festival is free and open to the public. Food trucks will be on site providing a variety of delicious dining options. There will be live music from local musicians, a kid zone and an area to participate in a variety of games for the whole family.

Proceeds of this event will benefit Jaycee Camp Hope, a statewide residential camp for individuals with intellectual disabilities aged 7 and older. Camp Hope, established in 1969, strives to give campers healthy experiences outdoors through four summer sessions. Benefits include exercise, outdoor activities, personal growth, and social development with peers and caring adults.

The Beaufort Food Truck Festival is the signature event of the Lowcountry Jaycees, also known as the Junior Chamber of Commerce. The Jaycees are the premiere leadership training and community service organization for men and women between the ages of 21–40. They promote leadership training and self-improvement by providing service and support for our community.
