Love food carts? Eat Mobile event returns

Love food carts? Looking for something to do this weekend?

Then check out the 7th annual Eat Mobile event at OMSI this Sunday, April 27, hosted by our news partners at Willamette Week. This year our own Valerie Hurst is a judge!

We talked to organizer Steph Barnhart on KATU News Wednesday morning about the event, which is part food festival, part cart competition. Guests can sample from more than 30 of Willamette Week's favorite food carts as vendors compete for the coveted Carty Award.

This year the event promises shorter lines. It's selling fewer overall tickets, meaning more samples. General admission tickets are still available online.

Willamette Week and OMSI will once again work to create a more sustainable event by incorporating solar generators and waste-composting facilities.
