The Last Family Foodie Fest of 2021

Rossmoor’s last, and last minute add-on, to its summer 2021 schedule of food festivals at Rush Park was perhaps its best, not only in the great lineup of bands that kept the sizzle going musically, but in the eclectic collection of vendors, mostly mom and pop entrepreneurial’s, who “just got tired of sitting the pandemic out at home” and created business opportunities of their own, by an energizing $10,000 donation from the OC 2nd District Supervisor Katrina Foley allowing the local district governing body to waive all fees for small business and nonprofits to set up tents on the grass and MAKE REAL MONEY. Food trucks, play zones, and picnic atmosphere, of course, were included. But bringing the live bands and the offbeat vendors into the mix was a winning combination for all.
