Kick off your summer weekends in style every Friday evening at Balboa Park’s hottest after-hours event. Visitors of all ages can enjoy live entertainment while eating gourmet dishes from a rotating selection of more than a dozen food trucks parked on the Plaza de Panama and El Prado walkway. Free crafts and activities for kids.
Since Food Truck Fridays first launched in 2016, Balboa Park has become an increasingly popular date-night destination, giving 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. Several Balboa Park museums will once again stay open late, with some offering special programs and admission discounts as part of Friday Night Alive! (formerly Park After Dark). See www.balboaparksummer.org for details.
Throughout the summer, Food Truck Fridays will present different musical performers or DJs each night in the Plaza de Panama. The Plaza’s “living room” setup will be rolled out, including a large artificial lawn for children to play on and giant family game sets. In addition, event sponsors KyXy 96.5, KSON 103.7, Sunny 98.1, and ALT 94.9 will be on hand on select Friday evenings with activities for families. Various Balboa Park cultural institutions will also have booths set up with hands-on activities and crafts for kids. The San Diego Museum of Art will continue to offer $5 admission prices to all visitors after 5:00 p.m. on Friday nights.
