The Best Day Ever(ett)
What do you get when you mix over 25 of the best breweries and cideries, 25 food trucks, and 40 artisan vendors from around the Northwest?
The best day Ever(ett), of course!
Saturday, August 24, is fast approaching. Here’s why we’re over-the-moon excited for this fun-filled day.
Kick the day off with some good old fashioned exercise.
With a twist!
Join hundreds of goofy, food-hat-wearing friends for a 3.1 mile run through beautiful North Everett. Running three miles in the morning isn’t for everyone, so we’ll have mile munch markers stocked with small bites along the way so you can take breaks to re-fuel.
Best of all, the Yum Run finishes at the Everett Food Truck Festival where you’ll have early access to all the food trucks to beat the lines.
Did somebody say food trucks? Yep. Times 30!
If you stepped up to do the Yum Run at 10:30 a.m., you’ll have until noon to get early access to all the food trucks. Otherwise, food trucks open to the public at 12 p.m.
Check out a list of the confirmed food trucks here. Many of the food trucks are from the Puget Sound region and can rarely be found in the same place.
Stock up on food and head over to the indoor seating at the Cope Gillette Theater, relax in Wetmore Plaza while enjoying a live DJ set by Live in Everett’s own Henry J (12-5 p.m.), or peruse the kids activities near the fountain at Wetmore Plaza and 40+ vendors on California Street in the Street Market.
STREET MARKET Curated by Everett Makers Market
40+ artisan, local vendors and pop-up shops will line California Street from Wetmore Avenue to Colby.
Everett Makers Market has curated a great line up with almost entirely new vendors that have never been featured at an Everett Makers Market before. From food-infused accoutrements to hand-made goods, the international corn hole league, and Everett’s own KSER radio station. Heck, even the Everett Museum of History will be there with a pop-up exhibit on the history of food in Everett.
The Street Market is sure to be a treat in and of itself! Make your way from the food trucks, through the Street Market, and to the beer fest we shall go...
UPPER LEFT BEERFEST
August 23, 4-8:30 p.m.
August 24, 12-7 p.m.
The Upper Left Beerfest is back with a mouth-watering lineup of craft beer and cider vendors.
This is the first time Upper Left Beerfest and the Everett Food Truck Festival have joined forces to bring you two festivals all about beer and food on the same day. And dagnabbit, we’re excited!
The main entrance to Beerfest can be found on Hoyt Avenue just North of Hewitt, but once you have your Beerfest wristband, you’ll be able to come and go directly from the Street Market on Hoyt Avenue.
Starting at only $25 for a day pass, admission to Beerfest gets you a commemorative 5-ounce tasting glass with six tokens. Tokens score you a pour from any of the dozens of breweries from the Northwest serving their liquid deliciousness.
This is seriously the perfect way to try all those fun wacky concoctions that you’d rather “sample” than potentially suffer through an entire pint of. Enjoying the experience with friends and comparing tasting notes is the best part.
Are you getting excited yet?
But wait, let’s make sure getting to the festival is hassle free.
Getting to the festival couldn’t be easier thanks to our official transportation sponsor, Community Transit.
Not only can Community Transit get you to the festival from anywhere in Snohomish County, but they’re offering FREE ORCA cards, pre-loaded with bus fare. Community Transit will even provide you with a custom itinerary for your trip to the festival!
If you must drive, street parking, Everpark Garage, or the Port Gardner Garage will likely be your best bets. Garages will likely fill up, though, so make sure to wear your walking shoes.
