We are excited to announce that our headliner for this year’s event is country artist Jordan Davis • With the #1 hit country single “Singles You Up” & new hit “Take it From Me.”  We cannot wait for August 10th! 

The Kingsgate Logistics Union Centre Food Truck Rally was a huge success in 2017 with approximately 10,000 diners! It is one of the TOP 5 Butler County events…Join us!

Once a year Union Centre Boulevard Merchant Association gathers Cincinnati’s best food trucks at The Square @ Union Centre for a Food Truck Rally! Last year there were over 30 food trucks with a variety of food options including smoothies, barbeque, mac & cheese, seafood, heart-healthy, vegan, sweet treats, Cajun, and Cuban! Scroll to the bottom of this page for a complete list. There is plenty of entertainment with live bands throughout the day, as well as beer and wine for adult diners.

2018 is the 6th year for the Union Centre Food Truck Rally; it has grown exponentially each year, with a portion of the proceeds going to one local non-profit beneficiary,

  • 2018 – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butler County
  • 2017 – The Heroes’ Fund

The event started as a way to give professionals who work around Union Centre a fun lunch alternative. Now it starts at 11:30 am and ends at dark with a firework display. UCBMA will continue to grow the event as long as the crowds can be accommodated. Last year’s music headliner was local favorite, DV8. This year, Jordan Davis will be performing his recent number one hit, “Singles You Up.” UCBMA will be choosing there 2019 beneficiary soon to prepare for next year. Approximately 200 volunteers work together to make the Union Centre Food Truck Rally a success!

Why do we plan this HUGE event?

Hero's Fund gets $14,000

We do it to raise money for a worthy local cause. Last year, Heroes’ Fund was our beneficiary. They received over $14,000 for their mission! Our members select our beneficiary organization who must have a local mission and serve a large number of people in our community.

Our 2018 beneficiary will be (drumroll…)
