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!
