One of the best food events of the year is coming up August 15th-17th: ~LA COCINA~’s Street Food Festival. This year, the party is going to be even bigger, because it turns out this is the last year they’ll be throwing it in the Mission. Wah! They’re scouting new locations, but if they don’t find one, it’s possible the festival may discontinue. We’ll update you with that news, but in the meantime, here are all the ways you can get pumped and celebrate the fabulous fête now.

First up, on Friday August 15th catch the Friday Night Fried Chicken Family Meal at the ~SOMA STREAT FOOD PARK~ from 6pm-10pm. Food vendors both local and far-flung will be on hand, frying up their tastiest birdies and slinging them into your bucket. There will also be a bar serving cocktails and craft beer, plus you get a filled-up flask upon entry. Nice touch. Tickets start at $50, and you can add lots of perks and VIP options during purchase.

Then of course there is the festival itself on Saturday August 16th. It will be from 11am-7pm on Folsom St. from 20th Street to 26th Street, and promises to be even bigger and better than before. We’ll have lots more details coming soon, but early bird tickets and passports are available now, as well as tickets to the unlimited Aperol Spritz brunch happening on Saturday from 11am-1pm. Are you fired up? Yeah, we are too.
