Spring Showers Postpone Food Truck Rodeo

By Staff Reports, posted May 3, 2023
The Food Truck Rodeo, initially slated to roll into Ogden Park on Sunday, April 30, has been rescheduled for Sunday, June 11.
Inclement weather forecasted for the Cape Fear region led the Parks Conservancy of New Hanover County to postpone the event, which typically draws thousands of people to a local park for an afternoon of food, drinks and live music.
Each year, the Food Truck Rodeo raises money to fund improvements to local parks. Funds generated from this year’s event will support construction of a new pump track and skills course at Castle Hayne’s Northern Regional Park.
Since 2014, the annual offering has rounded up nearly two dozen vendors, with both local favorites and trucks from the greater North Carolina area making an appearance. Janine Powell, director of donor relations with New Hanover County Parks and Gardens, recently told the Business Journal she first pitched the idea after seeing it succeed in other places.
“No one else was doing it and some bigger cities like Raleigh and Durham were having those kinds of events and having big success. I thought it would be a good model for us,” she said.
The event is free to attend, with food and beverages for sale from each individual vendor.
