Metro Denver’s largest gathering of gourmet food trucks and carts returns to downtown Denver’s historic Civic Center Park Tuesday with an expanded schedule and largest roster of food trucks to date.

The 11th Annual Civic Center EATS will launch Tuesday through Thursday and continue weekly through early October. 

Proceeds help support Civic Center Park revitalization efforts through the nonprofit Civic Center Conservancy.

“Civic Center EATS’ return is a sure sign that spring has arrived in Denver and summer isn’t too far behind,” said Lindy Eichenbaum Lent, Civic Center Conservancy executive director. “We’re grateful to the attendees, food trucks and sponsors who make Civic Center EATS a beloved community tradition and are thrilled to add Wednesdays to the Tuesday-Thursday schedule this year."

Civic Center EATS provides an opportunity for people to experience Civic Center’s beauty, enjoy a delicious, authentically local outdoor lunch, listen to live music and connect with the community. 

Civic Center EATS will be held Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. from May 3 through October 6 (excluding June 2, Aug. 31, Sept. 1 and Sept. 6.)
