2018 Food Truck Rodeos
Rounding Up Rochester’s Favorite Foods
Don’t you wish someone would round up dozens of great local dining spots, put them all in one place, and add local craft beer and live music? That’s just what the City of Rochester will be doing for this year’s Food Truck Rodeos, coming up for one day each month throughout the summer. The last Wednesday of the month, from April through September, more than 30 culinary trucks, trailers, and carts will convene at the Rochester Public Market from 5 to 9 pm — prime dining time. Bring the whole family, and even the pickiest eaters will find something to cheer about amongst the rows of compact kitchens. For a preview of the array of flavors you can expect to wrangle at this rodeo, check out Girls on Food’s exploration of the July 2017 food truck rodeo. Be sure to bring a lawn chair, blanket, or even a small table and settle in for a free performance by a different local band at each event.
