Outdoor DC Dining

Truckeroo is a DC event that’s emblazoned in the hearts of every foodie that ever attended.

It’s fun all day into the evening outside with locals, friends and fam, great music, cool drinks, games and of course a wide selection of some of the hottest food truck fare in the DC area!

Held at “The Bullpen”, the area around The Nationals baseball park, Truckeroo gives you the chance to sample a variety of food offerings from places like DC Slices, Due South, The Big Cheese, Bada Bing and many more all at once.

It’s free to the public and available from 11—11 on one Friday each month during the summer and fall.

Enjoy live performances from DC’s top local talent.

Different performers show up at Truckeroo each and every year, but they’re always a high quality band worth listening to. If you’re looking for free live music, Truckeroo is the place to go on Fridays throughout the summer months!

Get your fill of games and other activities.

Each Truckeroo is a unique event and there’s always something to do. Stop on by to try out games or special activities. Show up at Truckeroo during one of the stop dates (listed below), and get your fix of good food and entertainment for the day. You never know what to expect from Truckeroo, so be sure to head back over for multiple events if you’re hoping to get a real taste of what it has to offer.

Space is a little… “cozier” this year at Truckaroo 2017.

Even though Truckeroo can’t take full advantage of its Navy Yard location because of the construction that is going on right now, it’s going to be in the same location that it always is and will still have a strong offering of food trucks to enjoy. Sure, there will be fewer trucks than in previous years, but attendees will have a taste of the best DC food trucks to choose from, and that sounds good to us!
