Our Labor Day Weekend Food Truck Rodeo. 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.

Featured band: Asheville’s soul/jam/rock and roll outfit Travers Brothership. Recommended for fans of The Meters, Tedeschi Trucks, The Wood Brothers and Empire Strikes Brass.

Our non-profit partner for this Labor Day Weekend rodeo, Duke CTSI TransPop—MURDOCK Study (Clinical & Transitional Science Institute) will set up free beach volleyball, tick tac toe and jump rope stations.

Guest trucks have included 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 you can enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable Durham afternoon with friends and family. Thanks to our sponsors Camp Gladiator and Duke Football.
