Food That Rocks is a rain or shine event.
Food & desserts will be served 6:30pm - 9:30pm.

Safety is our first priority at Food That Rocks. We have all parts of the event covered with tents, so once you arrive on site you can enjoy all event activities with coverage from the rain (if applicable). We are expanding the tenting at entry gates to help cover attendees upon walk-in as well. Per City Springs, the grassy area is sports field-rated grass, which is optimal for drainage. In case of lightning, we will instill our lightning plan and will abide by NCAA lightning policy.
