The Columbus Food Truck Festival Hilliard Edition runs Friday August 19th 4pm-11pm, Saturday, August 20 from 11 a.m.—11 p.m. and Sunday, August 21 from 12 p.m. —7 p.m. and is located at the Franklin County Fairgrounds 4100 Columbia St, Hilliard, OH 43026.
The festival showcases delicious and unique fare from 50+ gourmet food trucks from Ohio and across the Midwest. All of these businesses are eager and excited to finally be able to get back to “business.” “The mobile food industry relies heavily on events like the Columbus Food Truck Festival to make their bottom lines. The shut-downs impacted this industry tremendously,” said Kaplan. “We are glad to be able to help in a small way by holding the festival this year, and hope central Ohio foodies come out and support these small businesses.”
Limited complimentary onsite parking* is included with the admission ticket. *Parking is on a first come, first served basis for ticket holders. On-street parking is also conveniently located around the Franklin County Fairgrounds.
