Charleston Battery FOod Truck Festival to serve up tasty fare and fun!

More than 25 vendors have committed to take part in Nov. 4 event on DI

It’s a concept that dates back to America’s beginnings in the 17th century. “Mobile cuisine,” “street food” and “field kitchens” have been part of the landscape since the late 1600s. According to, the Chuck wagon was introduced in 1866. Some 50 years later, the U.S. Army’s mobile canteen began serving food to troops. And who can forget the famous Oscar Meyer “Weiner Mobile” – the hard to miss portable hot dog cart that first hit the streets in the 1930s?

There’s something downright nostalgic about dining out of a truck – and chow lovers near and far will have a true smorgasbord to choose from on Sunday, November 4, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., when the area’s first Charleston Battery Food Truck Festival comes to town at MUSC Health Stadium on Daniel Island. All your favorite vendors – in one place.

“We wanted to host a free, all-ages event in hopes of bringing new people out to our stadium; we have a great venue and many DI residents have never been!” said Jodi Witte, director of corporate partnerships for the Charleston Battery. “The Food Truck Festival seemed like the perfect fit for DI families. We’re looking forward to bringing out some trucks that don’t ever make it out to Daniel Island.”

The event promises to serve up tasty fare from some of the most popular food trucks in Charleston. Offerings include tacos, grilled cheese specialties, Thai food, hotdogs, gyros, wraps, quesadillas, Greek selections, pizza, seafood, boiled peanuts and more. And there’ll be plenty of sweet treats for dessert.

“We’ll also have a wide selection of beer, wine, and liquor; music; and football on the 3,000 square foot jumbotron,” added Witte. “We want people to bring lawn chairs, blankets, tents, tailgate games, kids’ activities, etc. and set up camp at our stadium for the day! We have an amazing grass surface at MUSC Health Stadium, so we’re hoping people come and enjoy the food and beer and hang out for a while.”

According to Witte, over 25 different food trucks have committed to the event thus far.

“We’re hoping that everyone on Daniel Island comes out and spends the day with us,” added Witte. “We’re expecting a relaxed vibe full of great food, booze, and fun. Think of it as a neighborhood block party with some of the best mobile chefs in town!”

Admission to the Food Truck Festival is free.

“We’d love people to come out whether they try food from every truck or don’t eat anything at all,” continued Witte. “This is a great event for the Daniel Island community!”
