Irvine Global Village Festival: Food + Family Friday

Friday, October 2, 2020 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Celebrate the 19th annual Irvine Global Village Festival with a family picnic night at the Orange County Great Park. Bring your family and enjoy either your own picnic favorites or purchase dinner from a food truck. Safely spaced picnic spots for household groups will be drawn out on the Terraced Lawn. To complement your own picnic, the Taco Bell Truck will be handing out one free taco per person, and your kids can take home a free themed art project, prepackaged with all supplies provided!

Additional dessert and beverages will be available for purchase from Scooter's Italian Ice food truck, and guests can enjoy live background music provided by local Irvine students.

Food + Family Friday at the Great Park brings the community together to celebrate the culinary and artistic history of the Irvine Global Village Festival in a safe, responsible manner. Visitors will be asked to practice social distancing and adhere to continuing state and local safety guidelines. Staff will have designated picnic spots set up for household members to safely enjoy their food while staying 6 feet from other groups. No registration is needed for this free event; drop-ins welcome.
