Food truck parties have been a community tradition at this location for several years, and the festivities have become immensely popular with the Boulder crowd. This year, there are several dates to choose from: May 16, June 20, July 18, August 15, September 19, and October 17. This is a laidback event, so feel free to dress casually and bring sociable dogs. Curious about which food trucks will be available this year? There’s quite a lineup for 2018, including:

The French Twist

If you’re a fan of French fare, you’ll love the French Twist. To experience “mobile cuisine beyond the routine,” be sure to stop by this food truck on one of the available food truck party days. While you typically wouldn’t expect an upscale menu from a food truck, the French Twist offers top-quality ingredients and traditional French menu options such as escargot and ratatouille.

Cuban Fusion

Several of the food trucks are regular features at Gunbarrel Commons parties, but Cuban Fusion is participating for the first time this year. Served out of the colorful truck called “Jimmie,” menu items are flavorful and exotic. Menu staples include pork belly sliders and the Cuban Reuben.


Sonoran-style Mexican food is difficult to find, but Verde brings this incredible cuisine to Colorado with Boulder and Louisville locations. There’s something for everyone here: spicy Brussels sprouts appetizers, specialty tacos, sizzling fajitas, and churros are just a few of the delectable menu options.

Sweet Cow Ice Cream

After sampling a variety of savory and spicy foods, you may be looking to cool off and indulge your sweet tooth. Sweet Cow Ice Cream is a local Colorado business that specializes in crafting unbeatable ice cream with sustainably produced ingredients. Their shops are located throughout the state, and the food truck is available for get-togethers like these. While the menu changes with the seasons, you can always pick up the classics like chocolate, vanilla, milkshakes, and floats.

The food trucks mentioned here aren’t the only ones appearing at Gunbarrel Commons Park. Other awesome mobile restaurants in attendance include Suburban WienerWaffle Cakes, and Ivan’s All Natural Doggie Delights.
