It’s no secret that food brings people together. Although many people are back to jet-setting around the globe for a palate-pleasing experience, if you’re looking for something a bit easier, pinpointing food festivals in or around your area could do the trick.
Of course, when food festivals are mentioned, one of the first events that come to mind is the annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. And while that is one of the best festivals to hit up for food, wine, and spirits, there are even more festivals—both on larger and smaller scales—that deserve to be praised too. From the highly celebrated South Beach Wine & Food Festival to cultural events like the Barbados Food & Rum Festival, here is a month by month guide to visiting the best food festivals around.
Food festivals not your thing? You could always go on a trek to hit up the best food truck in every state or find the best small-town fast food spots in the U.S.
If you haven’t had the chance to indulge in Greenville’s budding culinary scene quite yet, you’ll want to stop by the Euphoria festival to see what all the hype is about.
