Streat Helsinki - promoting street food

Helsinki is proudly building the best street food initiative in the world. Streat Helsinki showcases a one-of-a-kind street food conference, a street food festival spicing up the Nordic capital, as well as a world class street food party.

Streat Helsinki will be taking its first steps during 21–22 March 2014 as a set of three events. The TALKS conference is held as a part of the Gastro Helsinki fair, while EATS and PARTIES take over the flourishing cultural districts and street food hubs of the Tori Quarters and the Abattoir.

- We are bringing the top players of the street food scene to Helsinki, and we want to offer everyone the opportunity to get acquainted with the possibilities of street kitchens. While doing so, we also want to push cities into making good decisions regarding the development of street food, says Ville Relander, project manager of Helsinki's Food Culture Strategy.

- I recommend Streat Helsinki to food professionals, amateurs and foodies alike, as well as anyone interested in urban development, trends, start ups, and service design. In fact, anyone who enjoys life! This is an event that gives energy, Relander continues.
