Eat, drink, vote at the biggest street food competition in the world – welcome to the grand final of the 2022 British Street Food Awards. Thousands entered, hundreds competed and now 12 finalists, from all over the UK, are parking up in Hackney Bridge to try to win YOUR vote, and become British champion at Hackney Bridge on September 9-11. 

This is a one-off chance to eat Britain’s best street food in one mega market – tickets are just £5, which includes your vote, a complimentary ICE-COLD beer from Cobra OR a rescued fruit mocktail from Surplus 2 Purpose, live DJs, plus the legendary Hackney Bridge vibes AND some of the best street food you'll ever taste. 

With a foodie photo booth, free entry to our Street Food StartUp seminar - with contributions from NCASS, Big Apple Hot Dogs and Sessions - plus unrivalled vibes at our massive indoor and outdoor space by the canal. THIS EVENT IS FAMILY FRIENDLY. KIDS UNDER 16 GO FREE.

There’s a huge range of food on offer: Creole chicken; plant-based burritos; avocado tempura tacos; Kotthu from Sri Lanka; pork collar with chimichurri; stuffed Indian momos, tossed in butter and masala; Filipino rainbow baos; and much, MUCH more. Who will you vote for? To represent the UK at the grand final of the European Street Food Awards in Munich October 7-9?

You will be voting for your favourite all weekend, before our expert judges (Andy Beynon and Tom Brown, Hackney’s two Michelin-star chefs, PLUS singer Sophie Ellis Bextor and husband Richard Jones AND actor Fay Ripley) reveal the winners on Sunday. 

This is one NOT to miss.

    The food was great the event was well run obviously the weather helped on the Sunday I went .. good choice of street food .. all competitors were willing on each other .. I would say maybe more tables and maybe a little stage so when presenting trophies people can see them rather than at normal height .. would go agsin for sure
