Durham Central Park’s Food Truck Rodeos

A Durham Central Park Food Truck Rodeo is an all-ages Sunday afternoon (most often 12-4 p.m. but check our Events page)  gathering of dozens of the Triangle’s most popular food trucks, five times each year. This is the original food truck rodeo of the Triangle–an event that helped start the food truck craze. 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. Guest trucks have included included American Meltdown, MaMa Dukes, Pie Pushers, Porchetta, Fosters, Chez Moi Bakery and OnlyBurger. Locally-brewed beer and bands 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.
