COLUMBUS, OHIO– The much anticipated summer foodie event, the Columbus Food Truck Festival, is back for year 9 and is serving up delicious fun for all ages on the Scioto Mile. According to festival organizers Mike Gallicchio and Chas Kaplan,

“The move to the Scioto Mile in enabled us to enhance the layout of the festival. The feedback received from both guests and vendors validated our decision. People loved the move and we are happy to be back!”

As in the previous year, the festival will literally take-over the river banks encompassing Bicentennial Park, the Rich Street Bridge, Washington Boulevard and Park as well as Genoa Park that sits directly behind COSI. In addition, the festival will once again be partnering with the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Great Duck Race charitable event.

We are also thrilled to have another charitable partnership with Music Loves Ohio: Music Loves Ohio is a wonderful local nonprofit that helps young, aspiring Columbus musicians in all sorts of amazing ways. They’ve given out free instruments, they’ve paid for summer music camps and they’ve sent talented young high school students to Berkeley for training. They are awesome people with the goal of making music attainable and affordable for all Columbus kids.

The two-day event, named Best Foodie Event in the state by Ohio Magazine 2017, will feature over 60 of the best food mobile food vendors from throughout the region, arts and crafts vendors, family activities and dozens of bands on two stages. There will also be a children’s midway on Saturday in conjunction with the Great Duck Race.
