About this project

 We are raising funds to help cover this year's start up costs for our four scheduled Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo community events. We will be hosting over 50 Food Trucks again this year. Trucks from as far away as Asheville and Wilmington will be driving in to test themselves to see if they have what it takes to hold up against the Raleigh Rodeo crowd. 

DATES:
Sunday, May 4th, 2014 - 1pm-6pm
Sunday, June 8. 2014 - 1pm-6pm
Sunday, August 10, 2014 - 4pm-9pm
Sunday, October 12, 2014 - 1pm-6pm

We launched these free admission events last year using no corporate sponsorship money, city funding, or federal funding. We love the grass roots aspect of this event and we hope that our local community can take on the role of being our primary sponsor\supporter through these crowd funding efforts. 

With an average of 10,000 people in attendance, seating for over 1,000 people on the street and 50+ food trucks showing up from across the state... we have some big checks to write to get things lined up for everyone. 

Risks and challenges

The greatest risk for this project is not being prepared to support the number of people attending the event. Our focus is ensuring that the fundamentals are taken care before we look into expanding the event project plan to include other fun to have items.
