Food Truck Championship
Carolina In The Fall is proud to not only bring some wonderful entertainment to Downtown Wilkesboro, but also some of the best food trucks from the state. Festival goers have the opportunity to try dishes from a variety of different trucks over the two days. There is food that everyone expects (wings, hamburgers, hot dogs, bbq) and also something for those that like something slightly out of the ordinary (baos, Haitian cuisine, alligator dogs). With such a great variety of trucks being together in the same place, it was only appropriate to get them involved in a cook-off of sorts!
On Saturday morning of the festival, each truck presents their best dish to a panel of qualified judges for a chance to win the title of “Carolina In The Fall Food Truck Champion”, an award, a truck decal, and a $500 check. Each dish is judged based on presentation, taste, originality and difficulty. Later that day, a representative from each truck goes to the Foothills Stage where the winner and runner-up are announced. This a fun way to get the trucks involved in the festival and creates a little healthy competition!
All food trucks are encouraged to apply and approximately 10 will be chosen to participate in the festival and the competition.
