Location and Time

Selection Guidelines

You’re welcome to sign up for multiple dates, however, you are not guaranteed a spot on all the days you request. It will be based on variety and what we need to make each event the best that it can be.

We’ll notify you around mid-March of all or any events that you’ve been chosen for so you have plenty of time to plan your schedule.

Food Truck Requirements

Food trucks will need to supply some documentation as listed on the application form. Because this event is under a “special events permit,” you will not need to obtain a City of Dickson Mobile Vendor Permit. If you’d like a permit for the City of Dickson outside of this evening, go here to apply.

Vegetarian and Vegan Options?

If you have food options, please try to put a sign on your truck if you have vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, or any other special options. Also, let us know if you do and we’ll help promote you in local groups who appreciate this.

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, 2022 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.

We’re looking for non-profits to support and demonstrators who’d like to set up for free that does something visually fun to experience for adults and kids alike, such as blacksmithing, woodworking, spinning, etc. Email for more information.
