Tempe Beach Park is once again the place to be in Downtown Tempe. Throughout the month of May, the park will be the site of Foodie Fri-YAYs, a new nighttime series showcasing the best of local food trucks and vendors, live music, and beer and wine. Attendees can wind down the work week and usher in the weekend as they eat, sip, and unwind until sunset and beyond each Friday night in May.


Every Friday the free event will feature a new mix of dinner options for purchase from a rotating roster of local food trucks. In addition, local breweries will supply a rotating lineup of beer and wine selections for purchase by attendees ages 21 and up. (The bar is cashless and accepts card payments only.) Local musicians from around the Valley will be featured each week, offering a different vibe for every event.


The first Foodie Fri-YAY event on Friday, May 6, will feature It’s Seoul Good Food Truck, Hot Bamboo, and Kingpin BBQ. Huss Brewery will serve up cold beer and Nomadica white, red, and rose wines are available for purchase.

With its central location, vibrant character, and plenty of heritage to celebrate, Downtown Tempe is a preeminent Valley gathering spot. Foodie Fri-YAYs give residents Valley-wide a chance to revisit a favorite Downtown Tempe event location, while supporting local businesses and entertainers.
