Columbus Commons, 160 S. High Street, OH

The Columbus Food Truck Festival is the perfect opportunity to support your local community by partaking in family focused events, listening to local artists, and sampling some of the best cuisine on wheels! With more than 60 vendors on-site, there is no better place to spend the weekend! Enjoy a bison burger while watching local designers strut their stuff on the main stage.

1. Location. Location. Location.

Not all festival locations are created equally and parking dilemmas are a major turn off for most people. Have no fear of such headaches when attending the Columbus' Food Truck Festival! It is conveniently located downtown at Columbus Commons, where parking is a cinch. With underground, street, and lot parking options, festival goers can focus on having fun and not beating a meter for a small fee!

2. All We Wanna Do Is Dance

Columbus, Ohio has a plethora of great bands and getting them all together is no easy feat. The masterminds behind the Food Truck Festival have partnered with April Kulcsar and Music Love Ohio to keep the jams going all day and night.

3. The Catwalk

For my fashionistas out there, get ready to strut your stuff around the streets because the Columbus Fashion Week designers will be in attendance! For the first time in event history, community fashion designers will unveil some of their upcoming pieces at the festival on the main stage.

4. The Local Love

Columbus is a thriving city, bursting entrepreneurial activity and many vendors can be found at the Columbus Food Truck Festival. Several booths will be set up to accommodate the 30 plus artists that are eagerly waiting to chat about their crafts. This is a wonderful opportunity to support local!

5. We See You Rolling

Columbus has not been immune to the food truck explosion that has taken over many U.S. cities. While some are still intimidated by the prospect of food on wheels, there is no need to fear the trucks here. With nearly 60 food vendors set to arrive, there is surely something for everyone. Several trucks offer vegan/vegetarian choices, and meat lovers won't be forgotten either!
