This Popular Food Festival Will Return To The Franklin County Fairgrounds In August

Columbus Food Truck Fest is back for another year.

The festival is celebrating 12 years of incredible, food truck cuisine in Columbus. The festival will take place August 19-20 at the Franklin County Fairgrounds.

There will be 50+ gourmet food trucks from Ohio and the Midwest participating in this year’s fest. In addition to the food, there will be artisans and crafters as well as two stages with live music performance from local favorites. Past artists include Angela Perley and The Howlin’ Moons, Willie Phoenix, The Winnie Cooper Project, Anna & The Consequences, and more.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing the Columbus Food Truck Festival back for another year,” said Chas Kaplan, co-organizer of the festival. “With so many delicious food options and fun activities, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.”

The festival is a great way to spend the day, whether you’re just getting a group of friends together for some good eats or you’re looking for something fun to do with the whole family. In fact, there will be an entire activity area for the kiddos at the Hilliard Historical Village, located on the fairgrounds.

There will be increased handwashing stations, covered seating areas, and complimentary onsite parking, although parking will be limited and on a first come, first served basis for ticket holders.

Speaking of tickets, they are $5 for adults and can be purchased at Kids 12 and under are free but must be accompanied by an adult.

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. Thanks to the festival, over $80,000 has been donated to local charities over the years.
