Step on up to the best way to grab dinner this summer and it's happening at one of my favorite spots in Rockford.

Every Family's Least Favorite Conversation

You'd think that eventually, you reach a certain age that you'd know exactly how to handle the following question:

What do you want to do for dinner tonight?

That question is usually followed up with, "I don't know, what do you want?" Eventually, decisions on where to go or what to have been made and someone ends up not completely happy.

Stop having that conversation and just make it the plan to head to the beautiful and expansive grounds of Rockford's Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens for,

If you can't find something you'd love to have for dinner at this event, you weren't very hungry, to begin with. On Tuesday nights all summer, lined up all along the banks of the Rock River, many of the area's most delicious food trucks.

 

Food Truck Tuesdays run May 3 - October 25, 2022 weather permitting at Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. (4-8 p.m. Sept-Oct). But not just the conservatory's parking lot, Food Truck Tuesdays stretch from Symbol all the way south to the Swan Anderson building.

Food Truck Tuesday Stress-Free parking

Rockford's Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens is located at 1354 N. 2nd Street.
Because of the way the event is spread out, it will cover 5 parking lots, and there are food trucks positioned at each of those lots.

Food Truck Tuesdays are BIGGER for 2022

The new setup will allow for up to 14 different food trucks every week. That also means lines will likely be shorter.
