Two Days – Saturday, August 25 & Sunday, August 26!
PARTY IN THE PARK – SAT, AUGUST 25, 2018
On Saturday, August 25th The HEY STAMFORD! FOOD FESTIVAL kicks off with a “Party in the Park!” Our friends from “Party Rock” will take the stage. This super group includes members of the Back To The Eighties Show with Jessie’s Girl & The Fresh Kids of Bel-Air, two fun bands that rocked our stage in 2017. This all-star line-up of talented musicians will perform mega hits from the 80s, 90s, 2000s, and today’s top 40, literally bringing a high-energy party to the HEY STAMFORD! FOOD FESTIVAL!
To add to the excitement, we invited the Iconic Rapper, TONE LOC, to also join us! The superstar rapper soared into pop-stardom in 1989 when his unmistakable voice and delivery made the song, “Wild Thing” a massive hit. Once his second single hit the airwaves – “Funky Cold Medina” – it helped propel his album to the top of the pop-charts, making it only the second rap album ever, to do so at that time!
From a food perspective, we’ve got a delectable mix of 20+ local food trucks and vendors complimenting the party vibe for the day! You’ll see a little bit of everything from Greek, American, Spanish & Mexican, Asian, and of course plenty of sweets like doughnuts, ice cream and so much more.
Get ready for SATURDAY: Party In The Park, featuring 20+ award winning food trucks & restaurants, a spacious beer garden featuring the best in cold craft & standard beer selections, and a main stage with full concert production featuring Tone Loc, Party Rock & the hottest local DJ’s

On Sunday, August 26th, “Country Rocks the Park” when Country music superstar DYLAN SCOTT joins the HEY STAMFORD! FOOD FESTIVAL! As one of the most successful, recent developing artist’s stories, Dylan Scott is riding a wave of momentum into the release of his self-titled debut. He’s been named one of Spotify’s Spotlights on Country Artists, and AT&T gave him the tremendous nod of adding him to their short-list of “About To Break” artists. Fans have already consumed millions of plays on new music through his engagement across social media and streaming. Following the success of his debut single, “Makin’ This Boy Go Crazy”, “Crazy Over Me” debuted at #14 on the Billboard Sales Chart, “My Girl” has run away as a career-changing song for Dylan, and new single “Hooked” is sure to be the next.
