Ravinia District Food Truck Thursdays

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 p.m. (June-August) and 4:30-8 p.m. (September).


The eclectic 2023 musical lineup includes a robust variety of genres as well as special theme nights for all-ages fun! Three theme nights will encourage guests to arrive in costume, enjoy interactive kids activities, and be ready to dance to music of the 80’s (June 15), Country (July 20), and Grateful Dead (August 17).
