The Saturday late night event has been cancelled. However, preparations are being made for it to occur this fall.
UPDATE – July 25, 12:58 PM
Organizers of Saturday’s Midnight Monster Food Truck Rally said that the event has been postponed. Karen Atkinson, founder of GrowRVA, the organization overseeing the event, said in a statement: “Due to seasonal scheduling conflicts caused in part by the overwhelming success of Richmond’s food truck and food cart community, we’ve decided to postpone the Midnight Monster rally.”
Plans are being settled to bring the late night food cart gathering to the Shockoe Design District in the fall with the hopes it becomes a regular or semi-regular event.

Forget the aging leftovers in your fridge, because later this month, late-night snackers will have much tastier options to choose from.
On Saturday July 28th, food carts will convene for the “Midnight Monster Food Truck Court Rally” from 11:00 PM to 1:00 AM in the parking lot of La Difference (at 14th and Dock streets). The event will be put on by GrowRVA, which organizes the regular Monster Food Truck Rally held at the Virginia Historical Society.
“Food trucks are a fun way to discover new foods and make new friends–or meet old ones– in an environment that’s a totally unique experience for many Richmond diners,” said Karen Atkinson, founder of GrowRVA. “This is not your parents’ fast food.”
Atkinson organized the late-night food truck event for Richmond “because it hasn’t been done here before.” She hopes the event will give the city a unique taste of its ever-growing food cart culture. The event also aims to highlight the Shockoe Design District, an area of town trying to brand itself as a key center of creativity.
