If you’re lucky enough to attend the Escoffier culinary school in Boulder, the beautiful landscapes aren’t the only things you’ll be able to take advantage of studying.

Colorado has a bustling food scene that attracts foodies from all over the country, and throughout the year, there are new, exciting events that you can visit to really get involved in the culinary culture. Many artists and chefs attending Colorado culinary schools make Boulder their home, which provides a close proximity to other foodie destinations like Denver and Centennial.

Sundays on the Streets
Each year, Centennial hosts “Sundays on the Streets,” an outdoor market that brings together all things artsy. In 2013, foodies will be able to enjoy the event even more, as food trucks are set to join the wide array of offerings. Now that Sundays on the Streets has a new location at the Cherry Knolls Shopping Center, there is going to be more room for a plethora of delicious food options to event patrons. Food trucks have become trendy dining options in the area, and event planners are excited to open up this possibility to Centennial’s art-minded crowd.

“It’s the perfect combination for us this year,” Robin Loughran, event promoter, told Our Colorado News. “They’ve long been a hit downtown and we hope to have the largest collection of gourmet food trucks in the city at Sundays on the Streets and we’ve already got five trucks confirmed.”

Beginning on May 12, which is also Mother’s Day, the market will be open on the second Sunday of each month from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There are a variety of vendors who are already confirmed for the 2013 market, and spots are filling up fast. If you visit, you can expect to find musicians, food trucks and a variety of artisans and vendors selling accessories, jewelry, handbags, baked goods and antiques, among other products.

“Centennial is my home too,” Loughran continued. “And Sundays on the Streets is just one way to celebrate the people of this wonderful community … in which we live.”

This event is suitable for residents of all ages and is free to the public. With tons of sustainable and hand-crafted merchandise to choose from, on top of delicious food from local food trucks, Sundays on the Streets is a must-visit for Colorado foodies.
