Cary, NC- This Saturday, the Cary Creative Center (C3) will host a Food Truck Rodeo in Downtown Cary. Some of Cary’s finest names in mobile cuisine will be there along with a chance to learn about creative reuse, up-cycling and a whole new way to look at arts & crafts.

C3 Food Truck Rodeo This Saturday

The C3 Food Truck Rodeo runs from 11 AM to 3 PM this Saturday, March 29, 2014 at Cary Creative Center, 155 Wilkinson Avenue. Trucks include:

  • Blue Sky Dining
  • Sarge’s Chef on Wheels
  • La Farm Bakery
  • Barone Meatball Company

Other entertainments include a corn hole tournament, games of chance, face painting and balloon art. Plus, you can see what creative reuse is all about – diverting trash from landfills by repurposing discarded items.C3 is all about art, recycling and the environment.

Portions of the proceeds from the C3 Food Truck Rodeo will go toward helping Cary Creative Center raise money for a much needed move.

$60,000 by September

C3 has set an ambitious goal. They need to raise $60,000 by September in order to move out of their current cramped location. This weekend marks their second anniversary and in this short time they have grown out of their current space, which is owned by the Town of Cary.

They have until September 30 to find a new space when their lease runs out.

50 Tons of Waste Re-Purposed

During their two years, they have helped to divert 50 tons of waste from the landfills. They take in all sorts of donations from greeting cards to office supplies, craft items and fabric, as well as other recyclables like lids and paper.

People can come in and shop for these items to create art, school projects, troop crafts, and also to purchase steeply discounted office supplies. Troops and groups come in to work on badges. Classes are offered in crafting from upcycled materials.

    Looking forward to going out there today. Have already donated several pounds of recyclables since first of year. Wish them success with fundraising for new space.
