La Cocina is proud to announce the fourth edition of the San Francisco Street Food Festival; a festival that brings micro-entrepreneurs, informal food vendors and renowned chefs together to celebrate and promote great street food, true entrepreneurial spirit and vibrant communities here in the Bay Area. Once again, the event has grown to meet demand, with a larger footprint, bigger bars and exciting new vendors with incredible food. This year’s festival will be a four day-long series of events.
Festivities will begin with the The San Francisco Night Market, a special kick-off event the night before the festival, reminiscent of the nighttime markets in Bangkok or Singapore, complete with music, dancing, drinks, twinkling lights and the enjoyment of many global flavors.
It will be held on August 17 from 4 p.m -9 p.m at Alemany Farmer’s Market. It is a $25 pre-ticketed event, serving as an important fundraiser for La Cocina. Ticket holders will receive a ticket to the event and a gift bag, filled with all kinds of fun things.
