Willamette Week's Eigth Annual Eat Mobile
Date, location for Eat Mobile 2015 to be announced next year

With more than 400 food carts selling their tasty goods within our city limits, Portland has become an international destination for mobile eats. U.S. News Travel and CNN have even declared Portland to have the "world's best street food."

Eat Mobile, part food festival, part cart competition, allows attendees to sample from an arsenol of Willamette Week's favorite food carts as vendors compete for the coveted Carty Award.

Eat Mobile showcases the food and people that make Portland's food scene so unique. Eat Mobile 2014, which happened on a Sunday instead of a Saturday, featured shorter lines and fewer overall tickets sold, meaning more samples for attendees. Willamette Week and OMSI worked to create a sustainable event by incorporating solar generators and waste-composting facilities.


The eighth annual Eat Mobile date and location will be announced early 2015, and is an all-ages event produced by Willamette Week, Portland's Pulitzer Prize-winning alternative newsweekly.

Tickets include samples from each of the 30+ participating carts. In addition to general admission tickets, a limited number of pre-tasting tickets will be sold, which will allow attendees to sample for an hour and a half before the general-admission event, enjoying short-to-no lines at each cart.
