"The Columbus Food Truck Festival has become a hallmark event in the region, bringing together foodies, music lovers, and families with wonderful food and vibrant entertainment,” said Chas Kaplan, co-organizer of the festival.

Columbus, OH – January 3, 2024 – After a brief hiatus in Downtown Columbus and a successful relocation to the Franklin County Fairgrounds in Hilliard for the 2021, 2022, and 2023 events due to pandemic-related challenges, the Columbus Food Truck Festival is ecstatic to announce its triumphant return to not just Downtown Columbus, but also the Franklin County Fairgrounds in Hilliard. The festival, now in its 13th year, will mark the occasion by taking place in two vibrant locations, showcasing the best of Ohio's food truck scene during separate weekends this summer. The last time the event graced Downtown Columbus was in 2019.

Named Best Foodie Event in the state by Ohio Magazine in 2017, the Columbus Food Truck Festival has earned acclaim for its commitment to delivering an exceptional culinary experience. The festival features the best mobile food vendors from throughout the region, along with arts and crafts vendors, and dozens of bands on two stages.
