The time has come to have some GNOCCO FRITTO again at the 2nd edition of Italian Street Food Fest - this time in charming Alameda!

Come join us for a day full of AUTHENTIC Italian street food, live music, and fun!

We have created this event with two priorities in mind: let people discover an authentic concept of Italian food (its public, most informal version) and give back to our community by partnering with a local nonprofit - Food Shift - to reduce wasted food, feed the hungry, create jobs, combat climate change, and cultivate more sustainable communities.

After the praise and delighted reviews from last year, this time the menu will be all around GNOCCO FRITTO provided by our experts from Gnocco Bella. We will bring the best out of it with many new toppings, including some exotic ones that will blow your mind! Menu options will be announced soon, for now all you need to know is that you’ll want some more, so start training your stomach. Operations in our kitchen will be optimized as well so you won’t have to wait in line as long as last year.

We are proud to partner with and donate all event proceeds to Food Shift, an Alameda-based nonprofit that works collaboratively with communities, businesses and governments to develop sustainable solutions to reduce food waste and alleviate hunger. Food Shift recently launched The Food Shift Kitchen - a social enterprise that provides job training and employment to individuals with barriers to employment.

An Italian street food fest would not be complete without music, so we will also be featuring live performances by local artists throughout the entire event.
The event will be at the corner of West Ranger and Pan Am Way in Alameda, right next to Spirits Alley with its lineup of local breweries, wineries and distilleries: come for an afternoon of delicious food and drinks and stunning views of the City! Alameda used to host a United States Navy Naval Air Station until 1997 and today you can still visit the USS Hornet Museum and explore some other unique vestiges that you wouldn’t expect to see in the Bay.

Although there is no dedicated parking for the event, there is a massive parking lot next to the event and there will be ample free parking for all. For public transportation, bus line 96 stops right in front of us and the Alameda Main Street Ferry Terminal is a few blocks away.

The event is free to attend, menu options will be available for discounted pre-purchase very soon.

Stay tuned for more details to be released in the next few weeks, we look forward to seeing you all there!
