Durham Central Park’s 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. After a seven-Rodeo hiatus, due to Covid-19, we’re thrilled to announce our first Rodeo in more than a year and a half is Sunday, September 5, 12-4 p.m. We’ll have dozens of local food trucks, including your favorites, as well as street performers, such as hand drummer Nina Oteria.

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 (March 22 is DJ K-Hill) 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.

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.
