Featuring a performance space, Columbus Bicentennial Pavilion, a hand-carved carousel, an outdoor reading room, world-class gardens designed and maintained by the Franklin Park Conservatory, and more - Columbus Commons is the place to be no matter the season.

Every Thursday from May 7 through Oct. 29 (11 a.m.-2 p.m.), the Commons is transformed into a Food Truck Food Court. Here you’ll find a plethora of local food trucks serving up some of the best eats Columbus has to offer.

Can’t get enough of the food truck phenomena? Be sure to catch the Annual Columbus Food Truck Festival for entertainment, live music, crafts and delicious grub from more than 70 of Ohio’s best food trucks.

Eat your fill, then work off the calories at one of the seven free fitness classes offered at the Commons each week. Simply complete the online registration form and you’ll have access to all classes throughout the season, which runs from May 4 through September 26, and includes popular workouts such as Boot Camp, Yoga, and Zumba.

Family Fun Days and free outdoor movie nights offer fun for all ages at the Commons.

Family Fun Day, which occurs every October, includes inflatables, carousel rides, a petting zoo and much more. Stick around afterward for a free showing of a kids' movie. Check the schedule to see what week it falls under this autumn!

Tap into your cultural side with the Actors’ Theatre of Columbus in its fourth season at the park. Choose from performance nights happening Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

You’ll also want to catch Picnic with the Pops, which features a terrific lineup of acclaimed artists and the renowned Columbus Symphony Orchestra with performances at 8 p.m. throughout the summer.
