The annual Rosemary Street food truck rodeo returns this Sunday, March 31 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. This year, the rodeo will be trying out a new location in the parking lot at the corner of Rosemary and Columbia streets, but should bring the same built-in fun.
According to a press release from the Town of Chapel Hill, students and community members can expect 14 food trucks, games for people of all ages, a bounce house, music by DJ Ahmod and opportunities to give back to the community.
Susan Brown, the executive director of community arts and culture for the Town of Chapel Hill, said she is excited about the new location for the food truck rodeo.
In years past, the rodeo would require a large amount of Rosemary Street to be closed off to traffic. With the new location, the town is able to keep Rosemary street open to traffic while holding the festival for the public.
This year, the Town of Chapel Hill and the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership are partnering with TABLE, a non-profit organization. TABLE delivers healthy, emergency food aid every week to children in the community, serving more than 650 children each week through its' hunger relief programs and provides nutrition education to 270 children.
