Bite of Seattle
Food and entertainment offered at Bite of Seattle © Jess Sawrey
A food carnival that has grown into the city's largest summer festival, Bite of Seattle brings together a feast of enticing food and exciting entertainment. A variety of the city's culinary offerings are brought together by participation of more than 60 restaurants and pop-up vendors, as well as food product companies, beer gardens and wine tasting exhibits. Live entertainment is also an integral part of the experience and includes the comedy club, a piano bar, kids' entertainment, and music.
The Bite Cooks is a popular event which features top celebrity chefs in a creative and interactive cooking show and demonstration. The Alley is a long line of tables manned by food vendors of all kinds, from restaurants to farms to shops, where visitors can sample tasters from each table. More recent additions to the festival include a rib cook-off where participants get to choose to enter into one of five United States barbecue regions and see who cooks the best regional barbecue. There is a dock-jumping competition that sees dogs and their handlers competing for various prizes, regardless of size, breed or experience. There are more stalls than one can imagine, from Chobani Greek Yogurt, Larabar, Sabra, ONE, Black Box Wines, Foster Farms, Dave's Killer Bread, and more, as well as a Family Fun Zone aimed at children's entertainment.
