Portland Summer Food Cart Festival

Chasing down your favorite food truck typically requires a little planning. Getting more than 20 of them together requires a herculean effort or a giant sinkhole. Happily for motorists and foodies alike, Portland Summer Food Cart Festival has done the legwork. Mobile vendors trundle their gustatory delights to the fest, doling out tasty treats from crepes and cupcakes to authentic Cajun food. Live music wafts through the air, and inspires games of musical chairs in the beer garden where guests can pair their food with a refreshing brew. And the festival doesn’t only benefit foodies—the profits go to ALSO, or Adult Learning Systems of Oregon, a non-profit that supports people with developmental challenges.

Customer Reviews

The festival was great and wonderful food. They just need more vendors.

I had a great time and will eat again at some of those food carts. Nice to help a non-profit also.
FRANK S. · June 27, 2013
More general seating areas, and more shaded areas to sit. And more carts! There was a good variety of carts but it was so much fun I wanted to sample more!
