The Philly Farm and Food Fest – April 13
Things might not be as fancy pants as they are over in Pebble Beach, but that doesn’t mean things in Philadelphia aren’t worth checking out. Over 100 local vendors, farmers, foodies, artisans, and farm-to-table chefs will all be hanging out to share their secrets and selections. Advance tickets will start at $20 per person, as the masses gather at Pennsylvania Convention Center Annex between 11am and 4pm.
Cooking demonstrations, a libations lounge, and everything in between is scheduled to keep you entertained and to fill you foodie fix. From bakeries and orchards to farms and creameries, it sounds like a farmer’s market on steroids and its 'll under one roof.
Austin Food & Wine Festival – April 25 – 27
Ending the month in Austin is probably your best option, and that’s all thanks to the Austin Food & Wine Festival doing its thing in and around town. Tickets start at $250 for the festival’s “Taste Pass,” and that will get you access to plenty of sips and samples. Things include access to over 40 cooking demonstrations and wine seminars, as well as some of the weekend offerings during the grand tastings.
Organizers have thrown together a nice interactive calendar to help you determine where you need to be and when, so you’ll be able to check out plenty of chefs, conversations, and cooking. For a little extra fun throw down some extra cash and take part in one—or both—of the special evening events like Rock Your Taco or Taste of Texas. We’re getting hungry just writing about this stuff.
