The San Francisco Street Food Festival: Aug. 15-16

FESt3Is there any thought better than being in San Francisco in the summer for a good old street festival? I didn’t think so. Well, if you have nothing going on next weekend (Aug. 15 -16) you can head to the great city by the bay and join the 7th San Francisco Annual Street Food Festival.

About the San Francisco Annual Street Food Festival: “From Saturday, August 15th through Sunday, August 16th La Cocina will join The Midway and Noise Pop in hosting our 7th Annual Street Food Festival, this year at Forest City’s iconic Pier 70 location in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood. From the site where the Transbay Tunnel was built, we invite you to join over 100 owner-operated food businesses representing the best of the Bay for a free-to-enter celebration of hard work, well made food and the vibrant and inclusive food economy that we all dream of. The San Francisco Street Food Festival features the participant businesses of La Cocina, a groundbreaking food business incubator that has been serving the Bay Area since 2005. In collaboration with Noise Pop and The Midway, this year’s festival will also feature a rotating selection of the minds, hands and palates of the people that make San Francisco the best food city in this country, if not the world.”

The San Francisco Street Food Festival will be held Saturday, Aug. 15–Sunday, Aug. 16 at Pier 70 in the great city of San Francisco.
