Food Truck Thursdays in the Ravinia District in the City of Highland Park will be extended one week through September 28, 2023, due to a cancellation June 29 because of air quality concerns. In its sixth season, Food Truck Thursdays has become the North Shore destination for family and friends to gather on Thursday nights from 4:30 PM to dusk on Dean Avenue between Roger Williams and St. Johns Avenues and Jens Jensen Park across from the Ravinia Metra Station.
Alfresco diners are invited to come and experience various food offerings and drinks from more than a dozen rotating food trucks every week on Dean Avenue. Guests can also enjoy beer and wine selections from Ravinia District restaurants Abigail's American Bistro and Ravinia Brewing Company.
Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs or dine at one of the many picnic benches in Jens Jensen Park while enjoying live music (weather permitting) from 4:30-8:30 PM (June-August) and 4:30-8 PM (September). The eclectic 2023 musical lineup includes a robust variety of genres as well as special theme nights for all-ages fun!
