Food Truck Friday
Food Truck Friday is an award-winning event of the Opelika Chamber. Hosted in downtown Opelika on various Friday nights throughout the year, the Opelika Chamber welcomes food trucks, live music, vendors, and thousands of visitors who dine, drink and enjoy the community atmosphere. The event starts at 5 pm, with some trucks remaining until 11:30 pm.
Trucks will be parked along N. Railroad Avenue and 1st Avenue. You can see the complete lineup of trucks here!
New this year, Food Truck Friday is presented to our community by an awesome partner, Afni! Afni is extremely excited to be part of Food Truck Friday. They are a proud employer and member of the Opelika community and have been for over 22 years! If you are in the market for a new career, they are also hiring. Head to AfniCareers.com to apply! Their sponsorship will enable us to continue to make this event possible. We also have music sponsors each quarter, along with a dining area sponsor who is assisting with our table setup and cleanup, Lambert Moving Systems & A Reprieve for Men. We truly could not do this event without these partners!!!
