Thursday, August 5, 2021

On Labor Day weekend, the 8th annual Chattanooga Street Food Festival is expected to bring around 15,000+ hungry visitors to the Chattanooga Market looking for the city's tastiest foods.

The Chattanooga Street Food Festival boasts a gathering of the best food trucks and street food vendors from all over the region. These food-passionate individuals and teams of food-trucks come together in Chattanooga to celebrate a diversity of food that is uniquely theirs, one that Chattanoogans have grown to look forward to each year, said officials. 

Admission to the festival is free to patrons. Foodies will be able to sample foods from several eateries and enjoy the street party which boasts live music and local brews. 

Visitors can expect a wide diversity of cultural flavors and the largest gathering of food trucks in Chattanooga on Sunday, Sept. 5. There will be trucks coming from Chattanooga and other nearby cities.

The regular Chattanooga Market simultaneously takes place at the First Horizon Pavilion, bringing in an additional 150+ vendors selling their produce and craft-wares. Thousands of visitors and locals come to the Chattanooga Market each Sunday to support local farms, artists and food trucks. 

Chattanooga Market is opening registration up to food trucks to join the Chattanooga Street Food Festival. New food trucks should inquire via email at: help@publicmarkets.us
