Congdon's After Dark
1100 Post Road, 04090
Wells, United States
Along with a different food truck configuration, you'll find LOTS of room to spread out when you get to the food truck park! We now have several additional seating areas on our property (in yellow), which will allow guests to be a comfortable distance from each other.
Thank you to the town of Wells and state of Maine for allowing businesses to make these temporary site plan adjustments -- and for doing so expeditiously!
Opening Day at Congdon's After Dark! is on Thursday, then open Thurs-Sun, 4-8 pm!
We are implementing several changes to the park to ensure your safety, including spreading out tables, expanding the space, cleaning more frequently, and encouraging masks. One thing that has NOT changed is our love for dogs! Please continue to bring your pups to the park -- just keep them on a leash please! 🐶
