In just five years,we've grown into the one of the largest street food festival organizations in the United States, with multiple festivals year round right here in the Northwest.

In 2013, our family of festivals attracted over 87,000 people in just three days of operation in some of Seattle’s most desirable neighborhoods like Capitol Hill, South Lake Union and Fremont for an alfresco-style  food and beverage experience. This year's events include Taco Libre Showdown, Seattle Street Food Festival and Trucktoberfest.

Our festivals have been internationally recognized as a top food and beverage destination. We've helped to support over 500 local micro to small business by providing an affordable market place that serves as an incubator in which they can further their goals.

Inspire, celebrate and serve as a launching pad for the emerging culinary talents of the Northwest

Our Mission

The Seattle Street Food Festival was started by Ryan Reiter and Jerry Brooks, serving as an extension of the popular Mobile Food Rodeo to offer a broader showcase of Seattle's growing street food scene in Capitol Hill. In its fourth year, it now is hosted in South Lake Union.

Reiter's family business founded and has continued to operate the Fremont Sunday Market, as well as the Ballard, Terry Avenue, Wallingford and Madrona Farmers Market for 25 years, supporting small business year round.
