Food Trucks at Civic Center

THE FOOD KEEPS ROLLING IN

CIVIC CENTER EATS PRESENTS THE CITY’S LARGEST FOOD TRUCK EVENT

On a warm sunny day, consider taking a stroll through Civic Center Park, a vibrant, historic area at Colfax and Broadway that marks the city’s hub of culture and government. Within walking distance of the stunning architectural campus, you will find the Denver Art Museum, The Denver Central Library, the Clyfford Still Museum, the U.S. Mint, The Colorado State Capitol, the 16th Street Mall and the Golden Triangle Museum District.

      But the tastiest part of the outing takes place right in the middle of the park, where food trucks line up every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to offer passers-by  some of the tastiest fare in the city. The weekly event is called Civic Center EATS, and is produced by Civic Center Conservancy, a not-for-profit organization that is working to reclaim the area as the vibrant community asset its founders envisioned.

     It’s literally a party every week, when Metro Denver’s largest gathering of gourmet food trucks serve up an incredible array of great food, enticing downtown employees, residents and visitors to experience the beauty of the Civic Center. The event is highlighted by gorgeous views and live music, all enjoyed under cover of umbrella-shaded tables or in the sunshine.

     In the mood for some great BBQ? Or something lighter like a salad or wrap? Maybe you’re feeling a bit more adventurous and crave some Ethiopian fare or an Indian dish. The choices are all there, and the most difficult part of your lunch will be deciding first which truck to try, and then … the hardest part of all … what’s for dessert?

     The trucks make their appearance on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., May 2 – October 5. Civic Center EATS posts ongoing events, food truck lists and music lineups on a variety of social media:
