In 2013, Carey Harnash had an idea to finally combine his love of food with the food truck community of Asheville North Carolina. He was constantly chasing after his favorite food trucks and their many different locations and venues. His idea was to create an event where the food truck community could all come together on the same day, and in the same location all at one time. The Food Truck Showdown was born from that idea. Carey decided to take the idea a little further by including various different charities in the Asheville area. In 2014, the first annual Food Truck Showdown took place at the Asheville Masonic Temple and the adjacent parking lot. Every year Carey tries hard to make the event a family friendly fun occasion for all ages to enjoy. So, come out to support the food truck community, and help raise much needed funds for some local charities.
