Interested food truck operators should apply by March 17, 2017. Interested artists should apply by March 24, 2017.

The purpose of the one-day event, scheduled for May 21, 2017, is to celebrate the City's new food truck pilot ordinance and kick off outdoor dining season in Downtown.

Roll'n Out Food Truck Fest will showcase food trucks and chefs along Ionia Street south of Cherry Street, an artisan market at the Downtown Market and culinary themed movies in Heartside Park.

To help make the event a success, DGRI seeks food truck operators who can contribute to a wide and diverse range of culinary options. Interested food truck operators click here to access the application (PDF).

We also seek a diversity of artists and art forms - painters, crafters, photographers, ceramics, illustrators, tapestry, etc - to populate the artisan market. We're especially interested in artists who can create at least some of their works on site and enhance the overall event experience by providing event attendees with opportunities to watch the creative process.
