Due to rising cases of Covid-19 and the delta variant, Durham Central Park, Inc. has made the decision to cancel the September 5th  Food Truck Rodeo at Durham Central Park. If we are able to have an autumn rodeo in November, we will announce it here and via social media.

Food Truck Rodeo on Foster Street

Durham Central Park Food Truck Rodeos aren’t just a great place to eat great street food, they also support Durham Central Park! These events raise thousands of dollars every year to operate, beautify and improve Durham Central Park.

Help make DCP Rodeos waste-wise events

We need Waste Warrior volunteers to help set up, staff, and breakdown waste stations that include recycling and compost options. These volunteer efforts help divert thousands of pounds of compostable and recyclable materials from the landfill! For information about volunteering, email Erin at [email protected] or Sign up to volunteer here
