A family fun event that is designed to showcase the diverse array of culinary delights and bring awareness to the battle against hunger through our “Hungry to Help” food bank drive for the Central VA Food Bank.

A variety of popular mobile food trucks and street vendors will feature their prime eats… buy a taste or buy a meal!
Among your choices? BBQ, chicken wings, hot dogs, soul food, seafood—even veggie options. Also, shoppers will be tempted by vendors displaying jewelry, arts and crafts and other kinds of merchandise.
Everyone is welcome….bring your kids, your friends, a lawn blanket and enjoy the good music, food and fun!

A special day of Food and music to battle against hunger through our “Hungry to Help” food bank drive for the Central VA Food Bank. The event will offer something for the entire family, including a kid’s zone with a jump castle, face painting and a tailgating area so the guys can relax and enjoy the car and motorcycles show.
It's a perfect way to blend a good cause with a good time. We know what a great service the Central VA Food Bank provides for our community but we really want to help increase awareness of what they do and give the community a chance to get involved. In 2010 the Chow Down festival goers provided over 1,333 meals to hungry families. OUR 2011 GOAL IS TO PROVIDE 5,000 MEALS TO FAMILIES.
You won’t want to miss this family fun event!
