Your favorite summer lunch tradition is back! Civic Center EATS returns to Denver for the 2018 season, serving delicious food, great views, and live music, all in the support of a good cause.

It's one of the Denver metro area's largest gathering of gourmet food trucks, and it's making its grand return to Civic Center Park this summer! The 13th annual Civic Center EATS will give patrons the opportunity to sample some of the best dishes in Denver, enjoy live music from local artists, and even take a load off in the Conoco Activity Zone -- which will include cornhole, ladder golf, and plenty of shaded table seating.

A portion of the proceeds will go toward the Civic Center Conservancy, a nonprofit "dedicated to restoring, enhancing, and activating" Civic Center Park.

When: May 1 to Oct. 4, Tuesdays to Thursdays*, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Where: Civic Center Park, downtown Denver

*Excluding May 31; July 3-4; Aug. 8, 29-30; and Sept. 4.*

More than 80 vendors will participate in the 2018 season with 25 food trucks scheduled each day. View the lineup below:

"We had more applications than any other season this year, so it was a process of opening the door for some new faces while bringing back many of the veterans and favorites everyone loves," Eric Lazzari, Civic Center Conservancy director of operations, told FOX31. A few of the returning favorites include Church of Cupcakes, WeChef Kitchen, and What Would Cheesus Do, among others.

Please keep in mind that the live music schedule has yet to be posted. Stay up-to-date on Civic Center EATS' Facebook page.
