A monthly food truck food court will replace the annual Food Truck Festival this year in downtown Aurora.
Food trucks will be part of First Fridays this year as the monthly event expands to include a food truck food court. A handful of food trucks will park at Water Street Square, the lot across from City Hall on each date.
“Although we’ve cancelled the festival this year, food vendors will still be a mainstay at downtown events. We’re excited to be able to grow First Fridays in this way and to be able to provide a variety of options, including outdoor dining opening soon at downtown restaurants,” said Marissa Amoni, manager of Aurora Downtown.
In April, food trucks Grumpy Gaucho, Home Run Dogs, Red Hot Dogs, Yum Dum, and Da Pizza Dude parked in the food truck food court providing menu items such as empanadas, vegan hot dogs, bratwursts, churros, and more. The lineup will vary each month to include a rotating list of food vendors.
Aurora Downtown typically hosts the Food Truck Festival at May’s First Fridays event.
