Our cart adds a whimsical element to your event, and our donuts and beverages will WOW your guests. Events are 2 hours and can be extended at your discretion. In addition to our carts, we offer Tented Service to weddings and special events.

The tented service allows us to set up in places not accessible to the 7,000 pound donut trailer! There is no difference in cost for our catering services regardless of format. In either format Carpe Donut prides itself in providing friendly, enthusiastic, and festive catering services to help set the tone for your event.

Making hot fresh donuts and beverages on site, we bring the same taste experience with a somewhat different presentation. Please see our sample menu.


  • Just wanted to say again how wonderful it was to have you and the truck out at our wedding in December. You were a huge hit! People are still talking about how delicious the doughnuts and chocolate were. I know I sent a ton of pictures, and I hope you get them all. IF you want to use any of them, please feel free- it's ok by me. You might want to credit Eric Kelley photography...he got some great shots! Thanks again, and next time we're in Cville, we're coming by to see you!

Fridays After Five

Fridays After Five, presented by Bud Light, continues to be Charlottesville’s favorite live concert series. 2018 will be the 31st year of free live music and fun.

The first event kicks off at Sprint Pavilion in April and will run each Friday thereafter ending on September 14. Each week volunteers work the concessions on behalf of a variety of local non-profits who share in the proceeds, which raises tens of thousands of dollars to support their work in our community.
