DALLAS There’s no better place to enjoy the fabulous food from Dallas’ best food trucks than under the sprawling Cedar Elm Trees at Dallas Heritage Village. Starting Friday, August 31st, you can double your fun with Cedars Food Park at Dallas Heritage Village. Building on the success of the grand opening followed by successful Thursday night events, you can now find food trucks at Cedars Food Park at DHV two nights a week. The timing is perfect as summer ends and people are looking forward to Labor Day weekend.
Dubbed Alfresco Fridays, Cedars Food Park brings back the popular mountain music by The Sicklies, and Franconia Brewing Company is the guest brewery for the night. Alfresco Fridays will kick off with Cajun Tailgators, Easy Slider, Free Wheel’n, Good Karma Kitchen, Jack’s Chowhound, Rock N Roll Taco, Rockstar Bakeshop, Ruthie’s Rolling Café, and Slush Works. The event is scheduled from 6-10 p.m., and the weather forecast is great. This is the perfect way to kick-off your Labor Day Weekend!
If you don’t want to wait until Friday, then make plans now to attend Food. Fun. Fido. on Thursday night from 6-10 p.m. Thursday nights will be super pet friendly, with relaxed DJ music to mellow out while Friday nights feature live music by local artists in the same relaxed setting. Franconia Brewing Company will be selling the craft beers and the truck line-up is top notch: 4 Seasons, The Belgian Waffle Company, Coolhaus, Gandolfo’s, Good Karma Kitchen, Nammi, Ssahm BBQ, and The Lab. This is the debut appearance by 4 Seasons and The Belgian Waffle Company, and rumor has it that Cool Haus may be featuring new flavors!
Food prices range from $2-$10, and a portion of the sales always go to support Dallas Heritage Village. It's always free admission and free parking; pets are welcome. Dallas Heritage Village is located at 1515 S. Harwood, just southeast of downtown Dallas.
Dallas Heritage Village is traditionally closed for the month of August, and the buildings will reopen on September 1. Visitors coming to eat at the food trucks are welcome to wander the grounds and eat in select air conditioned buildings. Just be aware that most buildings will not be open during the event.
