Cedars Food Park starts Thursday night eat-n-greet
It will have the largest number of trucks in one location for a regularly weekly event.
DALLAS After an unbelievably successful grand opening, followed quickly by the decision to postpone weekday lunches, Cedars Food Park at Dallas Heritage Village starts weekly Thursday night events beginning August 16. The addition of the recurring pop-up food park brings a new option that is especially appealing to fans or first-timers that are south or east of Dallas. But the location at 1515 S. Harwood just south of downtown Dallas is accessible by all major freeways including I-30, I-45, I-35 and Highway 75. And the parking is always free.
The line-up of food trucks is reduced from 18 at the grand opening to 10 trucks for the weekly event. This is still the largest number of trucks in one location for a regular weekly event and the participating trucks, that will rotate weekly, include some of the most popular trucks in Dallas. The wide range of food choices is sure to satisfy most every preference. Beer and wine is available and non-alcoholic beverages are available from the trucks.
The line-up for August 16 includes 4 Seasons, Crazy Fish, Nammi, Gandolfo’s, Jack’s Chowhound, Rock N’ Roll Taco, Taste of Home, Ssahm BBQ, Coolhaus, and Cup Cakin. If you need any more encouragement to come out, I’m told that Cool Haus is expecting new flavors “mid-month.” Hopefully, they’ll be available by August 16. That’s "mid-month," right?”

Located on the beautiful grounds of Dallas Heritage Village and under the shade of 150-year-old trees, Cedars Food Park is a great venue. The forecast is mostly sunny with cooling breezes at a gentle 11 MPH, according to the Weather Channel. The event is family friendly, an amazing place to hang out with friends and dogs are welcome! Parking is free and there is no admission fee to access the trucks. Be forewarned, my understanding is that Dallas Heritage Village closes during the month of August, so the historic buildings probably aren’t going to be open.
If you’re looking for a fun way to wind down at the end of the week, Cedars Food Park will start a Friday night event on August 31. No official name for the Friday event so I’m gonna throw out my nomination now: Finally Friday Food Truck Fantasy!
