2023 Columbus Food Truck Festival

August 19, 2023 - August 20, 2023

Columbus Food Truck Festival - Hilliard Ohio

2023 Columbus Food Truck Festival: A Weekend of Fun, Food, and Festivities!

The 12th Annual Columbus Food Truck Festival returns August 19th – 20th, 2023, to the Franklin County Fairgrounds. This event celebrates a vibrant and diverse food truck scene, local artists, craftsmen, small independent retailers, local bands, and solo musicians. The festival, now in its 12th year, has grown to become one of the largest food truck festivals in the country.

Thousands visit from all over Central Ohio and the surrounding region to sample a wide range of cuisines, from classic American fare to international street food. Attendees can expect to find everything from BBQ and burgers to tacos, sushi, and vegan and vegetarian options.

One thing that makes the Columbus Food Truck Festival so unique is the opportunity to try various foods in one place. With so many food trucks, attendees can sample dishes they may not have tried before or discover a new favorite. We recently compiled a list of 25+ popular food trucks in Columbus, and many will be attending.

The festival also provides a platform for local food entrepreneurs to showcase their culinary skills and build their businesses. Many food truck owners are small business owners passionate about their craft and love sharing their food with the community.

Tips for attending

If you plan on attending the Columbus Food Truck Festival, come hungry and wear comfortable shoes. With so much delicious food to try and so many activities to enjoy, you’ll want to stay all day!

Allow plenty of time to visit the different trucks. There is no way to eat from all of them, but take the time to browse the menus and make a list. Many food trucks have schedules posted where you can check them out later.

Take your time to explore the art and retail sections. This is a great place to find unique gifts for holidays, birthdays or to decorate your home. This is a great opportunity to support local businesses!

Finally, take some time to check out some of the local musicians. Kick back and listen to music while you eat. There is a lot of talent locally! The Columbus Food Truck Festival is a fun time for the whole family. As the dates get closer, you can visit their website to get a schedule on which trucks will be present. They are currently accepting applications for food trucks, vendors, and music acts.
