Durham Central Park’s Food Truck Rodeo
**2019 remaining DATES: Sunday, March 24, June 16, September 1 and November 3!**
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.
DreamRoot, from right here in Durham, is our featured band. Think: political Neo-Soul and Jazz with incorporated elements from the African and European musical culture. Their first set starts around 12:30 p.m. at The Leaf.
Our non-profit partner StandUp-SpeakOut of NC will help kids make a big anti-bullying collage poster (and they get a small gift bag for participating.)
Guest trucks have included Route Bistro LLC, Chirba Chirba Dumpling, Virgil’s Jamaica and Bulkogi Truck. Locally-brewed craft beer, cider, and a band or DJ 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. Special thanks to our sponsor BullHouse Apartments.
Help make DCP Rodeos waste-wise events
Waste Warrior volunteers are needed to help set up, staff, and breakdown waste stations that include recycling and compost options. With the thousands of people that attend the Rodeos, volunteer efforts can help divert thousands of pounds of compostable and recyclable materials from the landfill. If you are interested in volunteering, email Erin at [email protected] or
