Held every spring, the Capital City Food Truck Convention is unlike any other conference and trade show in the food, beverage and hospitality industries. This conference gathers together under one roof, the industry’s brightest chefs, entrepreneurs, innovators, and leaders for two days of education, professional development and networking with fellow vendors and industry providers. The convention features workshops for aspiring and current mobile entrepreneurs, event and meeting planners and local government agencies who license and permit food trucks. This year's event will take place at DOC 5, the space above Union Market at 1309 5th St NE, Washington, DC 20002.
