Food Fairs + Festivals

Trying new foods and indulging in old favorites is one of the best parts of traveling, and eating is even more fun when the joy of it is shared with likeminded foodies at a fair or festival. Whatever your preference, you're bound to find an event that excites your palate: Nashville's Hot Chicken Festival, Perugia's annual Eurochocolate Festival, the Maine Lobster Festival, Coney Island's famous Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, or the celebration of all things deep-fried that is the Minnesota State Fair. Mouth watering yet? Pack some antacids into your bag and travel to one of these gastronomic affairs.
