The 2014, second-ever edition of the Seattle Street Food Festival at Cal Anderson is planned as a bigger, longer Capitol Hill event with shorter lines — and an art and shopping fair brought to you by the creative types at Urban Craft Uprising.

The festival takes place Friday and Saturday, August 8th and 9th

“Our aim last year was to test the concept and thankfully, it was a huge success,” event producer Ryan Reiter told CHS earlier this year discussing the expansion of the festival. “Now as we move to two days, it should cut down on the congestion and offer a healthier food festival experience.”

Long lines and serious crowds were a blessing and a curse for the inaugural 2013 edition of the festival.

  1. I went to this last year and it was impossible for me to buy any food. The lines were insane for EVERY truck. Plus the arrangement of the trucks along both sides of the main route made it miserable to just move around and check out what a truck is selling.

    I would have spent the money for the “cut the line” privilege but they were sold out or some other problem.

    • So I take it you won’t be contributing to the crowd that gets in the way of the rest of us who haven’t been to all (or in my case, any) of those, and will be going to this? We’ll appreciate your bitchy absence!
