October & November Food Truck Slots are Sold Out! Still accepting vendors.

Location and Time

100 S. Mulberry Street in Downtown Dickson, Tennessee. Trucks will be in the alley and parking lot beside Mulberry Mill, just 1 block from Main Street. The event will start at 4pm and go until 8pm. Setup will strictly be from 12pm-3pm. 

Trucks & Vendors Attendance Guidelines

Food Trucks: We hope to have 5 savory trucks and 2 sweet trucks for each event. We can’t allow much overlap in genres so you may not be guaranteed a spot. Our job is to create a healthy variety in this event. You’re welcome to sign up for multiple dates, but if you’re the first to sign up in your genre (say, a pizza truck), and another pizza truck wants to attend, they will have priority in the next event.

Tent Vendors: We have to be cognizant of genre overlap and will do our best to respect that. In some cases, we’ll allow more than 1 vendor to sell similar items but we’ll use our judgement to maker sure your items are different enough. Please note that we have an exclusivity agreement with a tenant to not allow a crystal vendor. You can sell anything but crystals, as she has her permanent store right inside Mulberry Mill.

History & Track Record

If you’re not from Dickson, you may now know that food trucks were just legalized at the beginning of April! Dicksonites are excited to support you, and that was proven during our first Food Truck Friday on June 3rd, with around 1,500 people in attendance over just a few hours! Most of our trucks almost sold out of food and both trucks and vendors alike were overwhelmed with the excitement and profit from the event.

Food Truck Requirements

Food trucks will need to supply some documentation as listed at the bottom of this form. Because this event is under a “special events permit,” you will not need to obtain a Dickson permit, but you must have a permit somewhere. If you’d like a permit for Dickson outside of this evening, go here to apply.
