We spend half our life eating – or so it seems and when we’re with someone we are dating, food plays a big part in getting to know someone. What better way than doing a Taste Tour of some of the finest food festivals in the US – together!

Every year, cities across the United States host some of the most amazing food festivals in the world. There is a festival to please every set of taste-buds, with each drawing out the best restaurants and chefs of the area to offer fine, local cuisine. These festivals often attract a lot more than restaurants—it’s not unusual to see bands, dance groups, vendors, and distilleries represented alongside them.

If you are looking for a great, unique food festival to attend this year, here are a few suggestions:

This Memorial Day weekend festival is held to raise money for local non-profit organizations. The festival takes place over five days, and features selections from many famous local New Orleans restaurants. Along with the delicious food comes wine selections from many world-famous wineries and vineyards. These star restauranteurs and winemakers know the importance of proper food handling, and the use of cleanrooms, and on site cleanroom builders, for food prep.


Taste of Chicago

Taste of Chicago has been one of America’s best food festivals since it was first held in 1980. Local restaurants offer up everything from delicious jerk chicken to local desert specialties. With additional entertainment provided in the form of free concerts and a 5k marathon run, this festival is an excellent choice for a weekend outing with family or friends.


Taste of Vail

This mountaintop resort hosts one of America’s best food festivals every year. It simply has to be experienced to be believed. The feature of this event is the “Mountaintop Picnic”, a gourmet picnic held ten-thousand feet above sea level on Vail Mountain.


The Taste: Los Angeles

A four day long foodie fest in the City of Angels, this festival provides a quintessentially American food experience. The cities hottest chefs come out to showcase their craft, and the result is a festival that is unmatched by any of its competitors. Loud music, amazing food, and sublime California weather combine to make this one of the largest and most exciting festivals in the nation.


Most food festivals are massive events, with participating restaurants often requiring portable water tanks, on-site cleanroom builders for safe food processing, and transportable trash compactors. On top of this, the crowds drawn in by the festival’s many offerings are enormous and can easily get out of hand. So, if you do attend one of these fantastic festivals, be sure to pack light and stay safe so you can get (and eat) the most out of your festival experience.
