Event Summary

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.” 

 

 

Event Details

 

The Midwest’s Premier Food Truck Festival Returns to the Franklin County Fairgrounds for its Hilliard Edition August 19–21

 

Organizers are thrilled to add a third day to the festivities due to the high ticket demand in 2021. Admission is just $5 per person for a single day ticket or $10 per person for all three days. Tickets go on sale January 20th at 10 a.m. at columbusfoodtruckfest.com.

Columbus, OH—January 19, 2022 — The pair behind the Midwest’s premier food truck event, Chas Kaplan and Mike Gallicchio, are thrilled to announce the return of the Columbus Food Truck Festival, Hilliard Edition to the Franklin County Fairground August 19–21. As in years past, the event showcases the very best in the mobile food industry along with arts, crafts, and live music.

Now in its eleventh year, the festival made its debut at the Franklin County Fairgrounds last summer and organizers decided to continue the event at the fairgrounds due to the positive response. “We had an amazing turnout last year that far exceeded our expectations and our guests really liked the location; in fact, we even added a third day to the festival this year,” said Co-organizer Mike Gallicchio.

The setting of the fairgrounds allows for enhanced crowd management and safety protocols including ticketing, distancing, and accessible parking. According to Co-organizer Chas Kaplan, “The fairgrounds proved to be an excellent venue that allowed us to manage numbers with the added conveniences of parking, and a covered performance space.”

The festival showcases delicious and unique fare from 50+ gourmet food trucks from Ohio and across the Midwest. Complimenting the wonderful food, the festival boasts over two dozen artisans and crafters as well as live music throughout the weekend on two stages. The complete performance schedule will be announced at a later date.

The festival would be amiss if it didn’t have a special activity area for the youngest foodies in attendance. The Hilliard Historical Village located on the fairgrounds will be a respite for the kiddos with activities and a play area to burn off some energy.

Single day admission tickets are just $5 per person and can be purchased online or at the gate if available. A special weekend admission ticket, good for all three days of the festival, is $10 per person and available in advance, online only.  Both ticket types can be purchased at ColumbusFoodTruckFest.com starting January 20th, Children 12 years of age and younger receive complimentary admission, but must be accompanied by an adult 18 years of age or older. Guests are strongly encouraged to get their tickets before heading to the event as this event is anticipated to sell out.

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.

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. Since the festival’s inception in 2011, organizers have donated over $75,000 to local charities from the event’s proceeds.

ABOUT THE COLUMBUS FOOD TRUCK FESTIVAL  

The three-day event, named Best Foodie Event in the state by Ohio Magazine in 2017, features the best mobile food vendors from throughout the region as well as arts and crafts vendors, and dozens of bands on two stages. 

While the festival’s mission is to support food tourism in the Central Ohio area and support small business, another very essential component to the festival is to help build awareness and support local non-profit organizations that serve the Central Ohio community.  This year, the festival’s charitable partners include Music Loves Ohio and the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. “Both of these non-profit organizations give so much to the community and we want to support their efforts,” said Kaplan.
