MONSON, Mass. (WWLP) – A $2,000 donation has been made by Monson Savings Bank to the 2023 Monson Food Truck & Music Festival. 

In the western Massachusetts town of Monson, the Food Truck & Music Festival has become an annual tradition. This event is a day filled with food, fun, and music for people of all ages! Among the activities are food trucks, vendor tents, live music, face painting, and more. Cooper Jones, Savage Brothers, and Trailer Trash will perform live. 

“As a community-focused bank, we are proud to support the festivities happening in the Town of Monson,” said Dan Moriarty, President and CEO of Monson Savings Bank. “The Monson Food Truck & Music Festival is always a fun time, and it supports a great cause. We are excited to be a part of the festival again this year!”
