It’s going to be a Food Truck Extravaganza from August 21-22, 2021 at the Annual Food Truck Festival! Over 60 Food Trucks and Carts will be taking part in the Food Truck Festival at Franklin County Fairgrounds located in Hilliard, Ohio.
Originally set to take place along the Scioto Mile in Downtown Columbus, the event is relocating this year to the Franklin County Fairgrounds primarily due to permit timing.
In addition to a move to the Franklin County Fairgrounds, enhanced safety protocols such as ticketing will be implemented this year to allow for capacity monitoring.
The festival showcases delicious and unique fare from 50+ gourmet food trucks from Ohio and across the Midwest. There will also be over two dozen artisans and crafters and offers live music throughout the weekend on two stages with performances by hometown favorites like Angela Perley and The Howlin’ Moons, Willie Phoenix, The Winnie Cooper Project, and Anna & The Consequences.
The festival will also have a special activity area for the youngest foodies in attendance. The Hilliard Historical Village located on the fairgrounds will be a respite for the kiddos with activities and a play area to burn off some energy.
New additions to the festival this year include additional seating throughout the grounds, a covered seating area, a covered acoustic pavilion, increased handwashing stations, and complimentary onsite parking with a ticket. Parking is limited and on a first come, first served basis for ticket holders. On-street parking is also conveniently located around the Franklin County Fairgrounds.
Tickets are $5 for adults and can be purchased at ColumbusFoodTruckFest.com. Children 12 years of age and younger receive free admission, but must be accompanied by an adult 18 years of age or older. Guests are strongly encouraged to get their tickets before heading to the event as this event is anticipated to sell out.
A portion of the proceeds from the festival benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio and Music Loves Ohio. Both non-profits have an established history of serving children and families in and around Central Ohio.
