Expanded SF Street Food Festival Sets August Date
La Cocina has officially announced Sat., Aug. 21 as the date for the second SF Street Food Festival. The event will be exponentially bigger than last year, with close to 40 vendors (including those who will roam the crowd) taking over five blocks of the Mission as well as neighboring Garfield Park. We hear that Treat Street will be turning into Sweet Street for the day, so that's probably where you'll find us passed out after the Olympic sugar high we're gonna specifically seek out.

We'll bring you much more info, including expected pre- and after-parties, closer to the date. But for now, if you're intimidated by last year's lines for food, rest assured that organizers are working on it and don't want it to be a concern this time.
"Our priority this year is to make sure that if you come ready to eat, you can do so to your heart's delight," said Caleb Zigas, La Cocina's operations director.
