Founded by the first trucks to ever roam the streets of Charleston, our festival has grown and evolved over the years to become the largest, most family friendly, socially distant, safe, and creative food festivals in Charleston. Thank you to everyone who came out last year as we know 2020 and 2021 has been a tough one for all of us, but with vaccinations and boosters available, and the warm weather coming, we are so excited to celebrate the next 10 years with you! Safely. Respectfully. Embracingly. We welcome everyone with open arms to indulge on some of the best trucks in the Southeast. Cheers!
We love you! Please BE safe, BE respectful, BE kind & BE happy!
This years festivities will take place Saturday, May 21st & Sunday, May 22nd from 12pm-8pm both days!
The 11th Annual Food Truck Festival is FREE ADMISSION. Family and pet friendly, and will be spread out along over 5 acres of Tanger Outlets! There will be over 35 of your favorite food trucks with diverse and creative food options for everyone! Our main bar will have craft cocktails & beer, mimosas along with two satelitte bars each with craft beer, cocktails & seltzer. You must BE 21 years old to drink. Drink tickets will be availble for pre-purchase of the event as well to help with lines.
This Festival was created 10 years ago by food truck owners, for food trucks. Historically this festival is held in the the last weekend of January to help boost everyone's income after a slow winter season. Well...2020 & 2021 was pretty much an entire 2 years of winter, so we wanted to wait for vaccinations, boosters and an overall decline in people being hospilized for Covid before announcing 2022! With the weather getting warm and sun staying out later, our goal is to bring you a safe, socially distant event for all to enjoy. We cannot wait to see you all at the Outlets!
We highly encourage everyone to bring their own chairs, blankets, towels, sun screen, bug spray and carve our a space and spend the entire day!
There will be a combinatio of live music, DJ;s and some interactive preformances. This is the largest venue we've ever had and cannot thank our hosts, Tanger Outlet & The City of North Charleston for having us!
Thank you to everyone for your support of the local food trucks, and The Charleston Food Truck Festival. We're stoked to see you soon. Grab your stretchy pants and get on out here!
