First Annual Curbside Cookoff this Thursday

2010 Curbside Cookoff

Always wanted to try that street vendor your friends are always talking about but never had time? Always seem to miss the hottest new food trucks when they're in your neighborhood? Want to see some amazing art and performances? Now is your chance.

The District’s 20 most popular street vendors will converge in downtown DC on October 7 and 8 for two full days of art, music, dance and of course the best food the vendors have to offer.

The Department of Consumer and Affairs (DCRA), in proud partnership with the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Brightest Young Things, and the Downtown BID, presents the city’s first annual Curbside Cookoff.

The event is being held at CityCenterDC, the site of the old Washington Convention Center, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on October 7 and 8. Admission is free and open to everyone.

The vendors invited to participate were selected from a week-long online open voting process and the vendors chosen can satisfy anyone’s cravings including:

Attendees will be able to vote for their favorite vendor on-site via paper ballot and via American Idol-style SMS text messaging. More details on the voting process will be announced in the next few days.

Brightest Young Things (BYT) is sponsoring a happy hour beer garden sponsored by Flying Dog after work on both days. They also mentioned something about a Winnebago. More details coming from BYT.
