A Private Food Truck Gathering to Support Durham History

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The Duke Homestead Education and History Corporation, the support organization of Duke Homestead State Historic Site and Tobacco Museum, is teaming up with 15 of the area’s finest food trucks to provide an unforgettable evening of food, music, and family fun—all for a great cause. All you have to do is buy a ticket and bring your appetite, and you’ll be supporting the historic home of Washington Duke and his family, a place essential to the creation and success of Durham.

For this event, each truck will prepare a special “small plate” item. You and your friends can sample a delicious, varied menu underneath the big, hardwood trees that shade our historic property. You can bring your own chairs and blankets or make new friends by sharing one of tables in the site’s picnic area. Trained interpreters and staff will be on hand to offer tours of the historic house. Tad Walters, a Music Maker Relief Foundation member, will provide music (you provide the dancing).

Featured trucks include: Chirba Chirba, American Meltdown, The Humble Pig, Belgian Waffle Crafters, Thai Box Zing, Qspresso, Taco Grande, Zeke’s Meats, My Cup Overflows, Chez Moi, Heavenly Smoke, R.&J.'s Fish, Tootie's Kitchen,and Baozi. 

Bring a friend (or a few), because each ticket gets 15 plates of delicious food truck fare. We encourage you to split a ticket as many ways as your appetite allows. Hope to see you there!

We’re limiting this event to 200 tickets so reserve yours today.

$50* per ticket includes a sample from each of the 15 trucks on site and:
No waiting in lines!

Plenty of water is on us, lemonade from Fahsyrah's Lemonade and beer from Fullsteam Brewery will be available for purchase.
