Civic Center EATS – a Benefit Gathering of Food Trucks in Denver

Civic Center EATS is a gathering of food trucks near Denver's Capitol and courthouse. Each summer you can get your gourmet lunch from one of more than 20 food trucks parked in Civic Center Park Tuesday through Thursday. It's hard to choose only one cuisine: BBQ, Korean, Peruvian, New Orleans, coffee, ice cream, desserts, Columbian, Thai, Chinese, you name it! The event benefits the Civic Center Conservancy and you can't find a more delicious meal in Colorado.
