The Great Umpqua Food Truck Competition

The Great Umpqua Food Truck Competition

Umpqua Valley Community Celebration

A day filled with food, music, and fireworks!

Smoking barbecues and finger-licking fun all wrapped up in gingham print come together for Southern Oregon’s mega-American birthday party – The Great Umpqua’s July 4 Food Truck Competition held in Roseburg at the Douglas County Fairgrounds – offering the perfect package of small-town charm and a big appetite for adventure. This event is in it’s third year and continues to bring in more than 20,000 people and a wide variety of food trucks from all over parts of Oregon. Truck owners are not only filling the hungry bellies of event attendees, but are competing for top prizes: $10,000 for first place, $5,000 for second, $2,500 for third, and a best local truck prize for $1,000

The event kicks off at 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 4 with a special VIP entrance hour. General admission starts at 3 p.m. and is free. Games and activities for the kids are also available while adults can refresh their palates with the local beer and wine selection. At 6:30 p.m., the Battle of the Bands competition commences giving six bands the chance to also snag some cash prizes by an audience clap-o-meter rating. The party ends with a bang around 10 p.m. with the Roseburg Hometown Fireworks.

Produced by the Umpqua Economic Development Partnership (UEDP) with tremendous support from our Douglas County Commissioners, Douglas County Investment Development Board, Douglas County Fairgrounds, and the Roseburg Hometown Fireworks Committee.
