With over 30,000 people in attendance this past weekend for our Cinco De Mayo Mobile Food Rodeo, it is clear that we need more space, more days and more trucks to enjoy this street food nirvana.
The Mobile Food Rodeo will return to Fremont on Saturday, May 3rd and 4th starting at 12pm until 10pm with a beer garden style event for just Saturday with about 25 food trucks and then open to the general public for all day Sunday with a larger showcase similar to the past weekend.
There is also talk about creating a VIF (Very Important Foodie) that offers “time waves” during the Saturday event so that folks can enjoy in smaller numbers and would be easier to enjoy all day long for ticket holders.
Organizer and founder, Ryan Reiter says “It’s amazing to see so many folks enjoy the festival and support these small businesses in Fremont, so we plan to expand the festival over two streets to ensure it has enough space for attendees to feel comfortable and enjoy it year after year. Reiter and his team have tried to be proactive in dealing with the quick growth of the festival and appreciates the support of the community to make improvements every year.
What else is new? There plan is to create a Night Market Festival for the Saturday evening, so folks can enjoy an authentic street market underneath the stars with a relaxing view along Fremont Canal.
What’s next? Save the date for their 1st annual Seattle Street Food Festival set for Saturday, August 10th along Cal Anderson Park and and plans to announce an upcoming September festival that will be 21 + only with live bands and craft beers in SoDo are in the works.
