The Dilworth Chow Down food truck rally won’t be launching today (Thursday) as expected.
The rally was going to be a weekly event on the vacant lot at East and Scott/Kennilworth. But organizers just said they’re going to have to regroup and find a new location.
It’s unclear exactly what happened.
Rally organizers wouldn’t disclose the “incident” that led to being forced to move. But they did say it wasn’t a rent issue (they were prepared to pay in full, they said).
A lot of big name food trucks had also committed to the Thursday rally through the end of June.
It’s going to take at least a few weeks to get up and running again.
Charlotte requires a 15-day turnaround for noise permits to host a food truck rally, Dilworth Chow Down organizers said. They’re now vetting potential new locations.
“We are hoping to start the rallies up in the next couple of weeks,” they said. “Before we announce a date we want to make sure that what we just experienced will not happen again.”
