Summer Food Truck Rodeo ft. The Up and Up
June 16 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
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.
Bringing together an all-star lineup of funkateers from some of North Carolina’s greatest funk bands both past and present, this supergroup is sure to represent! Combining a boisterously blissful fusion of funk, soul, jazz, blues, and rock and roll, The Up and Up unique sound and catchy melodies will be good to your ears! With inspiration from such acts as Parliament Funkadelic, Lettuce, The Meters, Prince, Victor Wooten, The Allman Brothers Band, Curtis Mayfield, the band begins a powerful musical performance with a truly unique and amazing display of
showmanship making every audience feel like they are part of the show, part of the band and part of the family– at every concert.
Our non-profit partner, Bull City Music School will give young folks a chance to try out cardboard practice violins and for budding percussionists to try out for BCMS’s drumline, who will perform as the Bull City All-Stars at our PLAYlist Concert Series later this summer!
Guest trucks have included Route Bistro LLC, Chirba Chirba Dumpling, Virgil’s Jamaica and Bulkogi Truck. Locally-brewed craft beer, cider, and a band or DJ 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.
