COLUMBUS, OHIO– The Midwest’s largest food truck festival will take over Bicentennial Park, Scioto Mile and the Rich Street Bridge! This is a two-day event featuring over 50-60 of the best food trucks from Ohio and surrounding areas. The festival will feature live music on the Bicentennial Park Stage and our Second Stage located on Washington street on the West side of the river along with family fun for all ages.
The foodie feast begins Friday and continues through Saturday evening with great food, live music and special events. If you’re looking for a great way to spend an afternoon, a food lover eager to taste a delicious mix of the best food trucks, trailers & carts in Ohio or a music fan looking to experience the best sounds of central Ohio including national recording artists than the Columbus Food Truck festival is just for you! The Columbus Food Truck Festival is one event that offers something for everyone.
We are proud to announce The Columbus Food Truck Festival & the Development Board of Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Charitable Partnership: The 6th Annual Great Columbus Duck Race begins Saturday, August 19th at 11 am. The event will include a variety of kid’s activities, kid’s entertainment and will culminate with a massive splash of thousands of rubber ducks. Proceeds from the Duck Race benefit pediatric research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
We are also thrilled to have another charitable partnership with Music Loves Ohio: Music Loves Ohio is a wonderful local nonprofit that helps young, aspiring Columbus musicians in all sorts of amazing ways. They’ve given out free instruments, they’ve paid for summer music camps and they’ve sent talented young high schoolers to Berkeley for training. They are awesome people with the goal of making music attainable and affordable for all Columbus kids.
“The Columbus Food Truck Festival is one of the most unique events in all of Ohio” says event organizers Mike Gallicchio & Chas Kaplan.
«Our mission is to facilitate food tourism and create more vibrancy for our great city” We are very excited about new location move and look forward to bringing the ultimate foodie experience to the Scioto Mile and Bicentennial Park” says Mike Gallicchio & Chas Kaplan.
