Alfresco suppertime offers a variety of food truck fare, free museum admission, children activities, music by DJ Milk, and idyllic surroundings

The Buffalo History Museum hosts its fourth "Food Truck Rodeo" featuring 11 food trucks with menus offering a variety of specialized dishes and desserts the first Wednesday of summer months. The museum enhances the "Food Truck Rodeo" experience with free museum admission, extra seating for picnicking, children activities and DJ music by Amilcar Hill, aka "DJ Milk."

In anticipation of an estimated average attendance of 500 people per rodeo, folks are encouraged to bring a blanket and/or lawn chairs to enjoy the setting of the museum's architecture and of Delaware Park.

Constance Caldwell, director of communications and community engagement, said, "The 'Food Truck Rodeo' attracts a wonderful sample of the area's urban community. Many suburbanites also drop-in to picnic and enjoy the city's buzz. The most common feedback we've received has been the appreciation for short food lines, beautiful surroundings and, above all, our welcoming museum staff."

The event runs from 5-8 p.m. (food trucks serve until 8:30 p.m.) June 1, July 6, Aug. 3 and Sept. 7. The Buffalo History Museum is located at One Museum Court (at Elmwood Avenue and Nottingham Terrace).

"Food Truck Rodeo" is subject to cancellation if there's unfavorable weather. For more information about the events or other program happenings, call the Buffalo History Museum at 716-873-9644, ext. 320, or visit www.buffalohistory.org.
