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. Project 919 Band from right here in the Triangle, is a true representation of D.C. Go-go music.
Our non-profit partner for this Father's Day rodeo is Threshold Inc. Threshold will work with adults and children to complete Ellen McHenry’s “Brain Hemisphere Hat” activity. During this activity individuals will receive color patterns of the brain and have an opportunity to color and assemble them into a hat to take home.
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. Thank you to our sponsor Duke Football.
