Eligibility: Food trucks must be permitted by the City of Knoxville. Proof of food truck license and insurance is required.

Registration: To register your food truck, please complete our vendor application; we will confirm your spot via email. We only have space for a few food vendors, so register today!


Basic Guidelines (additional details will be sent upon registration):

  • Food trucks are expected to arrive by 12:30 pm in order to set up and be prepared to serve food beginning at 2 pm.
  • Food trucks will tear down and depart by 6:15 pm following the event to allow motorized traffic to resume. 
  • Past events have averaged approximately 5,000 participants; please keep this in mind when determining food needs.
  • If you have tables and chairs, feel free to bring them and set them up outside your food truck! 
  • We ask that you assist in line formation to the side instead of across the street.
