Central Park – Central Park Eats & Beats

LOCATION: St. James at Encore

Central Park Eats is a Food Truck Rally that will happen monthly to service the Central Park Neighborhood of Tampa’s Downtown by providing an opportunity for the residents to gather and support local 4 wheel businesses! This event will also feature additional monthly activations, such as music and other family-friendly activities.

This month’s participating vendors:

  • The Hangry Hungarian
  • Gigglewaters Mobile Kitchen


For May, June and July join us for Central Ave Live @ Central Park Eats & Beats, A Tampa’s Downtown Neighborhood Program

Join us on at Central Park Eats & Beats on 5/21, 6/18, and 7/16 as Instruments4Life pops up with an all – star lineup of Tampa Musicians and Special Guests who will share stories about Central Park’s Musical Heyday and pay tribute to their melodies! All in effort to bring to light a new FREE music program for the youth of Tampa’s Downtown Central Park Neighborhood.

Instruments4life is a 501c3 that empowers youth through music education and mentorship and has been awarded the Neighborhood Enhancement Grant by the Tampa Downtown Partnership to make this possible.
