“Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays through September, from 11-2pm, you'll find 30-40 food trucks gathered in Civic Center Park (between the gold domed Capitol Building and our City and County Building). It's a really fun event that lets you sample food from many of our very best restaurants in Denver within a very small radius!”
