EATS—Eat Along the Street

A celebration of street food traditions, EATS is a one-of-a-kind event that brings together Philadelphia's most illustrious chefs and food trucks for a night of friendly culinary competition and the perfect intersection of food, hospitality and philanthropy. It was created to benefit children and boost their potential, feeding both body and mind through multicultural cuisine and education.

In 2015, as we bring the popular biennial EATS Philly event back for its third showing, we’ll be partnering with The Food Trust, the organization that brings you Night Market Philadelphia (voted Best Event of 2014 by Philadelphia Magazine), to offer a unique street food experience at World Café Live. Along the street outside, enjoy all-you-can-eat savory and sweet offerings from food trucks and local breweries. Wander inside and watch a heated on-stage cook-off, where nationally known chefs put their own spin on authentic street cuisine from around the world —our VIP ticket-holders will join renowned food critics in casting a vote for the night’s best bites!  We invite you to explore our site and learn more about us and our mission.


What is street food?

Street food is one of the most authentic, affordable, and appetizing ways to experience a culture’s culinary heart and soul. Whether served up from a sidewalk cart, a market stall, or a vendor’s table, these tasty snacks, flavorful finger foods, and other local treats-on-the-go entice natives and visitors alike in cities all around the globe.
