Join us for the Portland Summer Food Cart Festival's third year! Each year we strive to bring our attendees a tasty combination plate of Portland's best food carts, a beer garden, live music, and the East County Food Cart Competition. Food carts compete and show us why the Portland mobile food scene is so outstanding by serving a special selection of dishes direct from their diverse menus.
At the Portland Summer Food Cart Festival sustainability is important. With the help of Gresham Sanitary Service and the City of Gresham, the festival will have a centrally located recycling and composting station. Plus, many of our food carts show their commitment to sustainability by using minimal and compostable food packaging.
East County Food Cart Competition
This award was created to recognize outstanding achievement by Portland's community of food carts and trucks. To judge the competition we are joined by a crack team of food cart aficionados, who taste and evaluate one signature dish of each cart's choice. Tasting is done throughout the day and by the end the winning cart is chosen and presented with a one-of-a-kind trophy, $500 and bragging rights for the entire year!
2013 Winner: Gaufre Gourmet
