On the first friday of the month, food trucks abound downtown!

First Friday Food Truck Fest Downtown Indianapolis


The first friday of each month (May through October) brings a deliciously fun time to downtown Indianapolis. First Friday Food Truck Fest puts 30 of the top food trucks from Indy in the parking lot at Old National Centre (502 North New Jersey Street), throws in some fantastic music, lawn games and a kids craft area, sets up some tables and chairs and makes for a really great time for the whole family!

Admission is $5, kids 5 and under are free and the gates open at 5pm (until 9pm). Parking is pretty readily available but you should expect to pay a few dollars for that too. Food is available at each truck for a wide variety of prices but you should expect to pay per person about what you would to eat somewhere like Applebees. Jay’s favorite truck is Scratch truck, mine is Groovy Guys Fries and Lulu loved Scout’s Treat Truck. I’m looking forward to trying out some newer trucks that I haven’t seen before, especially tacos!
