FNOW Food Truck Application

The Town of Wake Forest is pleased to present the fourth annual Friday Night on White. Presented by White Street Brewing Company, the outdoor concert series will take place along South White Street in downtown Wake Forest on the second Friday night of each month from April through September.

The series, which drew over 50,000 visitors to Wake Forest last year, will again feature a variety of premier local bands, including The Magic Pipers, Sleeping Booty, Love Tribe, Soul Pyschedelique, Big Love and Crush.

Event Dates: April 12, May 10, June 14, July 12, August 9, September 13 (Due to time constraints, food truck participation at the April 12 event is by invitation only. This application covers the May-September events.)

Event Hours: 5-9 pm

Arrival Time: 3:30-4:30 pm         

Event Fee: $150 per event

Anticipated Attendance: 5,000 –12,000 per event (highly dependent on weather).

PLEASE NOTE: The Town of Wake Forest will market the event extensively, including the availability of participating food trucks.

The Process

  • Each event has space for 11 food trucks. Trucks will be assigned to various months based on a lottery system, and preference will be given to trucks based in the Wake Forest area.

  • Participating trucks are required to have all necessary permits to serve in Wake County, including a Mobile Food Unit (MFU) permit.

  • Each truck must provide a copy of their Certificate of Insurance showing the Town of Wake Forest as an additional insured for the event date(s). A minimum of $1 million in insurance is required.

  • Due to scheduled construction in the downtown area, our food trucks will be relocated this year. While the Town of Wake Forest will make every effort to provide electrical access for as many trucks as possible, it is likely that a majority may be asked to use generators. Trucks with silent generators will be given priority during the application process.

  • The event will take place rain or shine. Should the event be canceled in advance due to extreme severe weather, all fees will be refunded to you.

  • Please submit an application indicating which months you are interested in attending. Applications may be submitted on-line or by mail and are due by Friday, February 22.

  • You will be notified which events you have been selected to attend on Friday, March 8.

  • Payment is due no later than 30 days prior to each event. Checks should be written to the Town of Wake Forest. An online payment option will also be available.

Menu Note

  • Our goal is to compliment our existing downtown restaurants - not compete with them. With this in mind, we do not book food trucks serving primarily burgers, pizza or ice cream.
