Last year, my team and I were fortunate enough to attend this event, and it simply blew me away.
I didn’t go hungry with samples of crab cakes, sandwiches, filet mignon trays, and food trucks all around. There were also tables displaying live cooking shows, fresh food served from various cultures and favorite spots in the city and around the country. Dessert stations featured cupcakes, Jamaican pound cakes, cheesecakes, and homemade candies – you name it; they had it. I was very full and thoroughly entertained. Don’t forget the wine and brewery samples. And if you want to have a good time, the dance floor was packed last year, and the DJ really showed us how to turn up at the festival; everyone was enjoying themselves. Someone even celebrated their bachelorette party, fully dressed with a crown and had their bridal party with them. When you feel tired, don’t fret; there were local coffee vendors and espresso samples. This is hands down worth the visit and one of my favorite picks for festivals, so if you are in the area, come; you won’t be disappointed.
