A Second Helping of the L.A. Street Food Fest

An All-You-Can-Eat Summer Tasting Event

la street food fest summer tasting event!

The first L.A. Street Food Fest left you hungry for more. This was in part due to crushing lines and food shortages — and the fact it was a whole heckuva lot of fun.

On July 24, founders Shawna Dawson and Sonja Rasula are back with the Summer Tasting Event. This time around, it’s going down at the Rose Bowl. Presale tickets are limited and available online only (none at the door), and all trucks have to put it in park outside the venue, as vendor booths will be organized under tents instead.

The all-inclusive ticket goes for $45, which gets you unlimited bites courtesy of 60-plus gourmet mobile eateries, restaurants, celeb chefs, and classic carts. Start savory with the likes of Monsieur Egg, Mo-Chica, and Dogzilla punctuated with pit stops to the open bars and beer gardens for tequila and mezcal tastings, specialty juices, and signature cocktails. Sweeten the deal in the ice cream social area, where ice creams from Cool Haus, Sweet Lucie’s, and the gang await.

Whether your tastes skew old school or nouveau, vote for your favorites along the way to ensure they win the people’s choice award. Help yourself to seconds.
