The clocks “fall back” for our final Food Truck Rodeo of the year. A Durham Central Park Food Truck Rodeo is an all-ages Sunday afternoon gathering of dozens of the Triangle’s most popular food trucks, five times each year. The event is free to attend. You simply pay for what you decide to eat from the trucks’ menus–from savory and stick-to-your-ribs to sweet treats.

Live music from Phatlynx starts at 12:30 p.m. The Triangle’s favorite pork obsessed Surfabilly band, Phatlynx (pronounced “FAT-links”) was conceived as a oneoff show/group to get as many people as they could fit into Chapel Hill, NC’s the Cave to play the song “Rumble” at the same time. 

Guest trucks have included American Meltdown, MaMa Dukes, Pie Pushers, Porchetta, Chez Moi Bakery and OnlyBurger. Locally-brewed craft beer and a band are always on hand. Dogs are allowed at the Food Truck Rodeo on regular (not retractable) leashes.

Food Truck Rodeos are rain or shine. Most trucks accept credit cards but an ATM machine is on site as well. Free parking is available in nearby lots. Bring a blanket or a lawn chair so that you can enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable Durham afternoon with friends and family.
