2018 Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo

Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo
Every year, visitors and residents of Raleigh, NC head downtown for a truly unique type of rodeo, where food and fun come together for a truly unique dining experience. The Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo is an awesome opportunity to enjoy some of the best food that the Research Triangle has to offer, support local businesses, and learn why so many residents of the Triangle love visiting food trucks in their favorite communities. Our real estate agents have all of the details on this exciting event in Raleigh, along with a closer look at why food trucks have become such a popular part of culinary life in the community. 

Raleigh Is All Revved Up for the 2018 Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo

When you shop Raleigh homes for sale, you can rest assured that you'll never be far from a great meal. The Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo is a fantastic opportunity to sample the city's culinary culture, and there are four opportunities to enjoy the Food Truck Rodeo throughout the summer.

The 2018 Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo

Where: Fayetteville Street, Raleigh, NC
Dates and Times: May 6 (12-6 PM), June 10 (12-6 PM), August 5 (3-9 PM), October 14 (12-6 PM)
Admission: The Food Truck Rodeo Is a Free Event, with Ample Outdoor Seating

Enjoy Unique Flavors from Raleigh and Beyond at the 2018 Food Truck Rodeo

If you've never been to the Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo before, our first advice is to make sure you shop up hungry. There is simply so much to try, with food trucks coming from across the state of North Carolina to showcase their unique culinary creations.

  • The Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo is a big event, with food trucks covering more than a half-mile stretch on Fayetteville Street in Raleigh. In total, the Food Truck Rodeo spans 11 city blocks, with food drawing on cultures from across the world.

  • The Food Truck Rodeo is also a great chance to get out and spend some time with the community in your favorite city. There are more than 1,000 seats set up around the food truck area, so you can sit down, enjoy a meal with friends old and new, and trade tips on the best food trucks at the event.

  • Wondering what sort of dining options will be on the menu for this year's Food Truck Rodeo? Don't worry, there's a map for that. On that map, you'll find a list of food trucks that offer everything from baguettes to Philly cheesesteaks, with plenty of sweet, savory dessert options on the menu as well.

Why Food Trucks Have Quickly Become a Beloved Part of Life in the Research Triangle

While food trucks have been around in North Carolina for a long time, the number of food trucks and food truck-themed events has certainly seen a sharp rise in recent years. College campuses like the NC State University play a big role in that popularity, as food trucks offer college students an affordable way to get a unique, creative meal on campus. These days, you'll find food trucks in any place where people congregate, whether in high-traffic work areas, at special events, or at festivals like the Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo. Raleigh is a foodie's dream, and food trucks are a big reason why that's the case.

In the Neighborhood: Franklin Street in Chapel Hill

Franklin Street Chapel Hill

Running through the heart of Chapel Hill, you will find a street that is filled with culture, entertainment, food, and fun for all ages. Franklin Street has been a hub of the city since the University of North Carolina was established in the 1790s, when the street consisted of little more than a few homes, stores, and public buildings. Today, Franklin Street is a great place to find food, fun, and entertainment for the whole family, and our real estate agents have all of the details on Chapel Hill's favorite street.  

Franklin Street Entertainment Chapel Hill

Food, Fun, History & Entertainment on Franklin Street

The Franklin Street dates back to those humble beginnings in the 1790s when the street was named for Benjamin Franklin. Over the years, more businesses, attractions, and public facilities have been added to the area, but the historic charm of Franklin Street has always remained. Businesses on Franklin Street serve students at the University of North Carolina, as well as residents from throughout the city.

Fantastic Food for Every Taste

The city of Chapel Hill wants Franklin Street to keep its unique, local feel and encourages small businesses to lay down roots in the area, rather than big chains. That leads to a fantastic collection of local restaurants, which have been serving the city for decades. Grab a breakfast you'll never forget at Ye Olde Waffle Shoppe, savor a tasty frozen treat at the Yogurt Pump, or enjoy a hot, delicious cup of coffee at the Carolina Coffee Shop. Whatever you crave, you'll find it on Franklin Street.

Family Fun at the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center

Did you know that Franklin Street is home to one of the first training facilities for NASA astronauts? The Morehead Planetarium and Science Center is one of Franklin Street's biggest attractions, with programs for kids, teens, adults, families, and everyone in between. Immerse yourself in the history of spaceflight, or take in one of the many dazzling shows that the planetarium has to offer.

Many of local businesses on Franklin Street are family-owned and have been here for generations. Historic buildings from throughout Chapel Hill's history still stand, and there are unique stories to be discovered all along Franklin Street. The University of North Carolina is also a huge part of Franklin Street history, with both students and the university itself supporting many cultural initiatives in the area.

Since Fuquay-Varina was actually created from two separate communities, you get the unique perk of having two downtowns to explore, within one great community.

Enjoy Arts and Culture Close to Home

The arts are an important part of life in Fuquay-Varina, with plenty of events, art galleries, and concerts to enjoy in the community. You can visit Ashley's Art Gallery or Magnolia House to see work from local artists and enjoy the sweet sounds of local musicians at the Follow Me 2 Fuquay-Varina Concert Series.

Big Events Bring the Community Together

You won't have any trouble finding things to do in Fuquay-Varina, and there will be loads of special dates to circle on your calendar throughout the year.

The biggest event of the year is typically the WRAL Freedom Balloon Fest when the skies above Fuquay-Varina are filled with hot air balloons, while the streets are filled with food and family fun.

Experience the Fuquay Mineral Spring

During its earliest days, Fuquay-Varina was built up around the Fuquay Mineral Spring, which provided mineral-rich water that people once thought had special healing powers. Visitors came from far and wide to see the spring in those days, and today the Fuquay Mineral Spring is still a great place to enjoy a picnic, take in the sights, and learn about a unique element of local history.

Distinctly Durham: Enjoy Fabulous Food and Spectacular Shopping at Brightleaf Square

One of the first things you'll notice when shopping Durham homes for sale is the way that the city--and each neighborhood--has its own unique atmosphere, history, and amenities. Brightleaf Square is a great example of why that's the case and provides the perfect place to spend a day no matter which corner of Durham you call home.

A Convenient, Historic Durham Location

Brightleaf Square first opened in 1981, aiming to provide a fun, convenient place to shop between Downtown Durham and Duke University. It was a hit from the start, in part thanks to the two historic buildings that the complex was built around. Brightleaf Square is housed in two large former tobacco warehouses, which were built in the earliest years of the 1900s. The complex has grown ever since, with a host of great shopping spots and dining destinations. In addition to the two main buildings, the courtyard between both warehouses has been redesigned to provide a scenic, outdoor setting while you enjoy all that Brightleaf Square has to offer.
