Small Things Fest will support Ukraine with fun, food and music


WARWICK—Small Things Inc, a Warwick-based nonprofit, has announced its lineup for “Small Things for Ukraine,” a popup food truck and music festival for Ukrainian aid. The rain or shine event takes place Saturday, April 23 from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Warwick Valley Middle School.

The community fundraising event will include food, desserts and live music, as well as crafts and activities for children. A selection of food trucks, including The Bus, Empanada Master, House of Birria, Jersey Rollz, Roam, Smokin’ Grate BBQ and Vietnamese Sandwich, will serve a wide and varied menu to event patrons. Desserts and sweets will be offered by Cream Puff Factory, Crumm Cake Cupcakes, Fruit Fashions and Sue’s House of Fudge.

The event’s live musical lineup will feature vocal-piano duo Grapefruit Moon, blues and classic rock band The Barrelhouse Blues Band, acoustic soul musician Chris Raabe and Warwick band No Soap Radio playing success from Ozzy to Joni Mitchell. Craft vendors as well as a variety of children’s activities add to the family fun-filled event.

General admission is $5/person with free admission for children 12 and under. Proceeds will benefit Small Things Inc and will be donated entirely to World Central Kitchen. WCK, a 501c3 non-profit organization, serves millions of fresh meals to Ukrainian families fleeing their homes as well as people remaining in the country.

Non-perishable food items will be collected for the Warwick Ecumenical Pantry. Medical supplies including first aid kits, dressings/bandages and over-the-counter painkillers will be collected for Ukraine. Donations are appreciated.
