Food Truck Festival Returning in 2023!

After a successful partnership in 2022, The Upper Left Beerfest & Everett Food Truck Festival will again happen in unison on Saturday August 12. Once again, we expect lots of smiling faces, families and excited beer drinkers visiting both the beer festival and food truck festival, taking over Wetmore Ave.

What Food Trucks Will Be There? Check Out The List HERE!


Because of the popularity of both the Food Truck Festival & Maker’s Market in past years – we’re moving them right to the doorstep of the Upper Left Beerfest. In 2023, all food trucks and makers booths will be located at Wetmore Ave & Wall St. at the edge of the beer festival, making it even easier to grab a bite and a beer. 

FRIDAY – This year, we’ll also have 20+ makers booths and 15+ food trucks available on Friday from 4pm – 8:30pm (same hours as the beer festival)

Welcome to Everett’s Upper Left Beerfest & Food Truck Festival!

In 2023, you’ll find us return to our new home on Wetmore. Stretching along Wall St and Wetmore south of City Hall, the food truck festival, which is free and open to everyone, will stretch along Wetmore to the south, taking over Wetmore and Wall St, taking over 4+ blocks of Downtown Everett for our biggest year ever and will feature lots of food trucks on Friday, August 11 from 4pm – 8:30pm and Saturday, August 12 from 12pm – 7pm.
