For the first time, the Sanibel Captiva Community Bank is sponsoring Food Truck Alley at Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation’s Beer in the Bushes on Saturday, April 16.
“We’re happy to support SCCF’s well-loved community event and its longstanding commitment to protecting the environment,” said Kyle DeCicco, President of Sanibel Captiva Community Bank. “SCCF’s mission to protect and care for coastal ecosystems aligns well with our unwavering commitment to local community causes that are important to us and our customers.”
Known as the islands’ unofficial end-of-season celebration, Beer in the Bushes attracts craft breweries, artisan food trucks, and attendees from all over Southwest Florida. In its ninth year, after a two-year pandemic hiatus, the outdoor event will feature an eclectic variety of six food trucks coordinated by Sanibel’s own Catering by Leslie Adams.
“We are thrilled to welcome island-chartered SanCap Bank onto our roster of sponsors for this feel-good community event,” said SCCF Event Manager Jeff Siwicke. “Each ticket includes enough TruxBux to keep you well fed and more will be available for purchase.”
Bring your appetite for wood-fired pizza, upscale twists of traditional comfort food, Mexican fare, seafood favorites, and some Cajun delights. You’ll be sure to work up a hearty hunger after dancing it up to two bands from the Big Easy.
Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs, who bring together many sounds indigenous to New Orleans, will take the stage first. Headlining is Big Sam’s Funky Nation, who will ensure that you are not just a part of the crowd, but a part of the show, dancing and singing along.
You’ll also get a chance to savor many of the region’s tastiest beers, as more than six breweries will be serving up their signature lagers, ales, porters, and stouts. Wine, soft drinks, and water will also be available for attendees.
Tickets are $90 in advance and $100 on the day of the event. Visit the Beer in the Bushes website to learn more and buy tickets.
