Where Every Family Matters

Eat the Street is Back On June 2

The family-friendly tradition hits Franklin’s Bicentennial Park on June 2.

As Williamson County’s premier food truck festival, Eat the Street has been a family-friendly tradition since 2011. Taking place at Bicentennial Park in Franklin, mark your calendars for Friday, June 2, from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. Bicentennial Park is located at 400 5th Ave N in Franklin.

The food truck lineup has not been revealed yet for 2023. Last year’s event featured Grilled Cheeserie, Retro Sno, Jay’s Chicago, Bradley’s Creamery, Love Bus, and M.L. Rose Craft Burgers.

What is Eat the Street?

Since 2011, the area’s growing community of food trucks have gathered together in Franklin in support of the 21st District Recovery Court. The event takes place at Franklin Bicentennial Park, located at Hillsboro Road and 3rd Ave. North.

The family and dog-friendly event will feature many food vendors (to be announced at a later date). Attendees are encouraged to bring folding chairs or blankets for picnic style dining.


Admission is free, although donations are appreciated and will be accepted at the Recovery Court’s two welcome tables.

21st District Recovery Court

The 21st District Recovery Court is a nonprofit organization that helps end the cycle of addiction in our community by providing accountability and compassion to non-violent offenders in the criminal justice system.

The money raised through sponsorships and vendor fees enable the nonprofit to continue to provide program participants with the services, treatment and supervision they need to successfully manage their recovery. Since its first graduating class in 2004, more than 200 participants have graduated from the two-year program, demonstrating their commitment to be free from addiction and live healthful lifestyles.

Eat the Street is now accepting food vendor applications. Those interested in participating may leave a message on the event’s Facebook page facebook.com/EatTheStreetFest. For information on sponsorship opportunities, contact Amy Gray at Gray Public Relations, amy@graypr.com.
