Wednesday, March 13, 2019 — Seattle, WA — Albert Lee Appliance, returns as the title sponsor, to celebrate the 38th annual Bite of Seattle®. The three-day food, beverage and live music festival takes place Friday through Sunday, July 19th-21st, 2019, at Seattle Center in Seattle Washington.

Located in the Uptown Neighborhood of Seattle, the Bite of Seattle® is the perfect festival for guests who prefer to ‘experience’ a wide variety of food and beverages, while listening to live music, in the heart of Seattle, amidst the historical landscape that played host to the 1962 World’s Fair.

The Bite of Seattle® will feature over 60 restaurants, plus food trucks, artisan, and specialty food vendors, which will offer food lovers a variety of sweet and savory ethnic dishes to include Creole, Asian, European, in addition to all-American festival favorites like burgers, corn dogs, and strawberry shortcake.

Guests looking for a high-end restaurant ‘multi-bite’ experience at the Bite of Seattle®, will enjoy The Alley. Located on the Fisher Rooftop, The Alley, now in it’s 31st year, will feature six Seattle-area restaurants, each to offer one signature menu item: six ‘larges bites’ for one price. The Alley will run Friday through Sunday 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Proceeds from The Alley will benefit Food Lifeline, the state’s largest hunger relief organization, which rescues surplus food from going to waste and redirects it to more than 300 food banks, shelters, and meal programs.

The Bite of Seattle® will also feature local chefs at The Bite Cooks! interactive live cooking show, presented by Albert Lee Appliance, which will take place each day of the festival, on the Fisher Rooftop, and will see some of Seattle’s best chefs go head-to-head in live cook-off battles, and perform cooking demonstrations of their signature dishes. Thierry Rautureau -The Chef in the Hat- will return for his 11th year as emcee of The Bite Cooks!
