The Priory Hotel
July 28
6:30—9:30 p.m.

Did you know that in Allegheny County alone, there are 3,000 children experiencing homelessness? Popping up at The Priory Hotel in historic Deutschtown, the Voodoo Food Truck Throwdown aims to help end childhood homelessness in our region, one food truck at a time.


Showcasing Pittsburgh’s burgeoning food truck and craft beer scenes—and raising awareness about the pressing issue of homelessness— the Throwdown will feature a selection of refreshing libations from Homestead’s new Voodoo Brewery paired with dishes from some of Pittsburgh’s top food trucks.

Participating food trucks include BullDawgs, La Palapa Mexican Gourmet Kitchen and Off the Grill. Featured Voodoo libations will include the brewery’s White Magic of the Sun (Belgian White Ale), Winona’s Big Brown Ale, Hoodoo IPA, and Gran Metz.

The vibrant summer night will also feature live music by Pittsburgh-based DJ Dave Zak.

Within the tranquil grounds of Pittsburgh’s only historic boutique hotel, attendees will celebrate the spirit of lending a helping hand and giving back to the community. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Homeless Children’s Education Fund, which provides educational programs and services to kids experiencing homelessness in Allegheny County. Established in 1999, the Fund serves as a national model for addressing the educational needs of unstably-housed children and youth, and for advocating for policy and system improvement.

For $50, VIPers will enjoy a happy hour from 5:30 to 6 :30 p.m., an exclusive session with Voodoo brew masters, a “Food Passport” for the night, and four beer tastings. General Admission is $30, which comes with four Voodoo beer tastings.
