Frequently Asked Questions

What can I bring in with me?
Please feel free to bring folding camp chairs, blankets, and pop-up style tents and umbrellas. You may not bring in any outside food or beverage.

Do we have to pay to park?
Yes, parking is $5 per vehicle.

Do I need to bring cash?
Yes. While many vendors will be able to process debit/credit card payments, some may not. It is definitely a good idea to come with cash on hand.

What else will there be to do?
The Rural Hill Food Truck Rally has something for everyone! Let your kids run wild in the Kids Zone (fee applies), learn about cooking over an open flame at the historic Rural Retreat Cabin. Challenge your friends and family to a round of corn hole. Enjoy live music under the stars. Take a scenic and relaxing hayride around the property (fee applies), or hike off any culinary excesses with a quiet hike along our 2.5 mile trail.

What about live music?
Historic Rural Hill welcomes Coddle Creek to the Food Truck Rally Stage on July 15th! Coddle Creek is a high energy creekgrass band from the foothills of NC in beautiful Coddle Creek! It's traditional bluegrass music with a kick,we like to play fast and let our light shine bright!!! The sweet harmonies and dueling acoustic guitars of longtime friends Travis Weddington and Adam Lawrence are like no other.

Travis Weddington is from Coddle Creek, NC. He grew up playing traditional bluegrass with his family. Travis then got bit by the blues bug, under the wing of Rusty Barkley in the Part Time Blues Band. Shortly thereafter, Travis started ripping up electric guitar leads for the "improvisational project band Duk Tan”. His vocals songwriting and acoustic guitar licks are the icing on the cake in Coddle Creek.

Adam Lawrence has been playing guitar seriously for almost ten years. His original songs, vocals, and acoustic guitar picking are a large part of the sweet sounds of Coddle Creek. Adam’s influences range from the late Doc Watson and his father, Jack Lawrence playing traditional bluegrass, to progressive blues and most recently jam bands. Adam continues to redefine and create his own style of flat picking traveling and playing different genres of music nationwide.

Dave Mclendon, the veteran musician and long time bass player for Duk Tan, hails from the backwoods of Richfield, NC where you can hear the slapping of the cat gut on the hollow body of a sexy stand up fiddle off in the distance, if all is quiet and you put your ear to the ground...Just listen, you'll hear it!

Steven Davidson has been all around this great country of ours and played with some of the living legends of our time. He's toured around with Spongecake and the Fluff Ramblers holding down the low end but barely holding his eyes open behind the wheel of their slow moving van! Steven has twice the strings now and he's using every one of them and chucking his way along with the Coddle Creek crew! He's a well rounded musician and the perfect fit for this group of misfits, plus, the Mandolin makes him look alot bigger than the bass does!

Are dogs allowed?
Sorry, no pets are allowed for this event.

Is my favorite truck coming out?
Maybe, if not we’re positive that you’ll find a new contender!

I still have questions. Who can I contact?
Feel free to contact Rural Hill staff Monday – Friday from 8:30 – 5:00 at 704 875 3113 or email us at [email protected]

Will you have alcohol for sale?
If you’d like to drink wine and/or beer, please be sure to have your ID ready to be presented to Rural Hill Staff. If you appear to be 40 or under you will be asked to present ID, no exceptions.

Will I have to stand in line to get my food?
Remember, trucks serve great food, not fast food! Much of the wonderful creations served by food trucks are made-to-order on-site, so expect a bit of a wait...but also expect a true culinary delight. With an increased number of trucks attending this time around, we hope that the wait won’t be too long.
