Mobile Food Rodeo Fall 2012 Video

Last week I got a chance to head down to the Mobile Food Rodeo in Seattle. The event was held on Saturday, September 15, 2012. A whopping 45 gourmet food trucks/carts were gathered in South Lake Union around Denny Park. This has got to be one of the largest (if not THE largest) gourmet food truck events in the country!

The weather was beautiful which made the whole event that much more enjoyable! When I go to one of these events, there’s a desire to taste everything but unfortunately, I can only eat so much in a short amount of time! I’ll have to find some of these trucks at their regular locations on my lunch breaks in the weeks to come.

The Mobile Food Rodeo opened with a special early bird event from 10am-12pm for guests who purchased a VIF (Very Important Foodie) pass. VIF pass holders were able to beat the lines before the general public started to show up at noon. The 2012 Mobile Food Rodeo at South Lake Union ran until 7pm.

Canon 7D at Mobile Food Rodeo 2012

I brought my Canon 7D and was able to get a lot of good photos and HD video during the 3 hours I was there. I would’ve shot more but ran out of battery power. Here’s the final video compilation below. Enjoy!


I snapped a bunch of photos food trucks and the crowds while I was there but the video pretty much shows it all. Hope I can make it to next year’s event to shoot another video. By the way, I have no affiliation with the Mobile Food Rodeo but I can say that they put on a fantastic event!

      Hi Jim, thanks for the info! I will be sure to attend this year’s Mobile Food Rodeo. Had a lot of fun at the South Lake Union event last year. Hope to see new trucks and carts at Interbay.
