The highly anticipated Food Truck Fridays program returns May 31 for 18 straight weeks of great food, free live entertainment, and family-friendly fun. More than a dozen carefully curated gourmet food trucks will be parked along the El Prado walkway every Friday, through September 27, from 4:00pm to 8:30pm. Now in its fourth year, Food Truck Fridays is a program of the Balboa Park Conservancy in partnership with the City of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation. Food Truck Fridays gives thousands of park visitors and families a unique opportunity to sample a diverse, rotating selection of gourmet food trucks, serving everything from appetizers and main courses to desserts and specialty beverages, all in one convenient location. In addition to exceptional food options, Food Truck Fridays presents a full slate of family-friendly fun: Different music and dance acts perform each night in the Plaza de Panama. The Plaza’s “living room” setup is rolled out, along with giant family game sets. Various Balboa Park cultural institutions and community partners offer hands-on activity and crafts booths for kids. And participating park museums host special evening hours and programs on Fridays.
