Updated: April Foods Day Cancelled


In accordance with Gov. Roy Cooper’s March 14 executive order and his recommendations concerning the response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Downtown Garner Association is canceling the food truck rodeo this year. We take these steps because, as always, maintaining the health and well being of our community is our top priority.

Join us on Main Street in Downtown Garner for our annual event featuring 15 food trucks and 3 local NC craft breweries! Enjoy live acoustic/bluegrass music, local artisan vendors, handmade crafts and kid-friendly activities!

DATE: SUNDAY, April 5, 2020

TIME: 12:00 TO 5:00 PM



April Foods Day Food Truck Rodeo will be held rain or shine.  Admission and parking are free – our talented parking crew will be on hand at the west end of Main Street to direct you to parking on the day of the event.

Due to the large crowds and food trucks, we ask that pets stay at home during this event for safety reasons.  The Town of Garner does not permit pets (other than service animals) at public events at this time.

Free Parking

Let our excellent parking crew help find you a spot on the west end of Main Street – parking is available at Garner Baseball and the Lions Club.  Limited parking (including handicapped spots) is available east of Griffin Street on Main Street.

Please do not park on the side streets off of East Main Street – the streets are narrow and residents need to be able to get in and out.
