The 2nd Annual San Francisco Night Market will be the kick-off for the festivities of the 5th Annual San Francisco Street Food Festival. This event will partner well-known chefs from across the country with La Cocina program participants to create one-of-a-kind dishes in an environment reminiscent of the nighttime markets in Bangkok, Mexico City, and other vibrant cities of the world.
There will be music, dancing, drinks, twinkling lights, and the enjoyment of exciting and varied flavors.
In addition to food, music, and drinks, this year La Cocina is thrilled to welcome cultural games and activities to the Night Market. The games include familiar childhood favorites to more adventurous activities - from cornhole and skee ball in the North American station, Berlin-style ping pong in the Eastern European station, backgammon and a hookah lounge in the Middle Eastern station, and so much more.
Just remember, it is the Bay Area and Karl the Fog is always crashing parties, so bring a jacket and get ready to have a incredible time.
It is a pre-ticketed event, serving as an important fundraiser for La Cocina, which is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. For your $35 donation to La Cocina, you will receive entry to the event and plenty of entertainment.

La Cocina is a ground-breaking business incubator designed to reduce the obstacles that often prevent low-income food entrepreneurs from creating successful and sustainable small businesses. By providing affordable, shared, commercial kitchen space, an array of industry-specific technical assistance and services, and access to market opportunities and capital, La Cocina works with entrepreneurs as they launch, grow, and formalize successful food businesses. We focus primarily on women from culturally diverse communities and immigrant communities. Our vision is that our program participants will become economically self-sufficient and contribute to a vibrant and diverse economy doing what they love to do.
