Food Truck Tuesday

Every Tuesday from 5:00 - 9:00 PM at 330 South Main in Pleasant Grove.

Pleasant Grove Food Truck Tuesday is all about food, family & fun!

The Pleasant Grove Chamber of Commerce recently organized this weekly Tuesday night event that brings together all types of unique food trucks from around the valley. On any given Tuesday, families enjoy gourmet waffles, specialty pizzas, unique burgers, burritos & wraps, and all kinds of unique desserts.
 
I’ve worked with the Chamber Board of Directors, truck owners, property owners, business owners, and the City to bring this event to fruition. The response has been incredible. People from Pleasant Grove and beyond have enjoyed the variety of food options available each Tuesday night. I love seeing the community enjoy the food these businesses are providing - it truly is a unique experience to eat these one-of-a-kind food items.
 
Within one month the event has grown from 3 trucks on Opening Night to 8 trucks and hundreds upon hundreds of visitors every Tuesday. I believe this event meets a need that residents have expressed in wanting more restaurants in Pleasant Grove. New restaurants are opening their doors on Main Street and in other locations around the city, and Food Truck Tuesday is an additional option and a really fun chance to eat all kinds of truly unique food every Tuesday. Between Food Truck Tuesday and the Promenade on Thursdays, the question of where to eat out is answered.

Area History 

On July 19, 1850, William H. Adams, John Mercer and Philo T. Farnsworth, Mormon pioneers sent by Brigham Young, arrived at the area now known as Pleasant Grove and staked out farms in what is now the southwest corner of the city. A small community was established September 13, 1850.

The original name of the city was Battle Creek. It was named for a battle which took place there in 1849 between Mormon settlers and a small band of Ute Indians. The settlers later decided they needed a more uplifting name and began calling their town Pleasant Grove after a grove of cottonwood trees located between Battle Creek and Grove Creek, near the current-day intersection of Locust Avenue and Battle Creek Drive. A monument with a plaque describing this battle is located at Kiwanis Park, at the mouth of Battle Creek Canyon.

Strawberry Days

Pleasant Grove is home to a unique summer festival, Strawberry Days, the longest continuing community celebration in Utah to date.  The city hosts the annual festival, usually during the third week of June. A rodeo held in conjunction with this festival brings competitors and spectators from throughout the West. The festival includes parades, a carnival, pageants and other activities. Although no strawberries are currently grown commercially in the city, the festival takes its name from a time when strawberries were a major economic activity in the city. The first Strawberry Days celebration was held the second week of June, 1921.  It was organized by the Wasatch Club, the forerunner of the Chamber of Commerce.
