Friday, 3/31 4-8PM
Saturday, 4/1 12-5PM
This event is RAIN OR SHINE.

One of the largest gatherings of food trucks in the region with some of the most talented and competitive trucks. Last year we raised more than $15,000 for our local chapter of the Disabled American Veterans. Helps us do MORE this year! Proceeds will once again benefit our local chapter of the Disabled American Veterans as well as Hero-Hunts Foundation.**Voting ends at 4PM on Saturday and a winner will be announced at 5PM. Many trucks sell out of food by 4, but the winery will be open and any trucks with food left will be on site to sell until 8PM.**

Participating Trucks

Once again, our friends at Delaware Pallet Creations have donated a beautiful hand-crafted wine bar to be raffled off at the event! Tickets are now sold in the tasting room and will be sold the days of the event. ($1/each or $10 for an “arm’s length.”) Proceeds from the raffle also go to the DAV and Hero Hunts Foundation.

Are kids allowed?
Yes! This event is family friendly.Are pets allowed?
Sorry! Only service animals.

Should we bring chairs?
Yes. We have seating on site, but due to the amount of attendees, we recommend bringing chairs or a blanket. Make it a picnic.

Can I come both days?
Yup. One ticket is good for both days. Bring back your glass or be prepared to show your bracelet for readmission.

Why are “Early Bird” online tickets more? Isn’t that backwards?
Our ticket set up is a bit unorthodox. We admit. But if you opt for the $16.82 Early Bird ticket, we assure you that we feel the extra dough is worth it. Buy early and you get that extra drink ticket (good for wine or cider), but also get to skip to the front of the line. The great thing is that proceeds from both types of tickets go to support our Veterans!

Do I have to pay if I am not drinking? What about people under 21?
Designated drivers and anyone under 21 will be allowed in without paying the admission fee. (Though, as this is a fundraiser for local Veterans, we will welcome anyone who wants to donate at the door for anyone not paying the admission fee.)

When is the best time to get there?
We had over 5000 attendees last year and 15 trucks. Most of the trucks sold out of food by 4PM on Saturday. The trucks are aware of the potential crowds and are asked to plan accordingly. However, in order to give you the best shot at trying the most — or your favorite — trucks, we recommend you come earlier in the day just to be safe.

Credit cards or cash?
We take credit cards in the tasting room for the wine sales, but the trucks will be dealing primarily in cash. We recommend coming with cash. Makes it easy!

I don’t like wine. Can I bring in beer or something?
Unfortunately, the law prohibits outside liquor being brought in. You may, of course, bring in non-alcoholic beverages (and our friends at Fordham and Dominion Brewing will be here selling soda). Not a fan of wine? Did you know that we also sell hard cider? Try Rebel Seed Cider while you are here!

What’s the parking situation?
We have a big ol’ field down the road from the winery. It will be staffed and people will be able to park there. We drive people in wagons (or golf carts for disabled) down the road to the event, or some opt to walk — burn off some calories.

Will I be able to try something from every truck?
That depends totally on you. You pay as you go so it all depends on the size of your wallet — and stomach. While we encourage trucks to provide small portions of dishes so people can taste as much as possible, most trucks sell full-size portion sizes. Our suggestion? Come both days — with a lot of friends. Buy as much as possible and share so you can try a whole lot. 😀



  1. How much are kids

    • Rona- kids, anyone under 21, and designated drivers may come in free of charge. However, since we are raising money for Veterans, we will gladly accept any donations people want to make on their behalf. 😀
