Eat Real Festival, now in its 11th year, combines a state fair, a street-food festival and a block party to create a celebration of good food. Eat Real’s mission is to help revitalize regional food systems, build public awareness and respect for the craft of making good food and encourage the growth of American food entrepreneurs. Using fresh, local ingredients, Eat Real aims to show how easy it can be to support a regional food system by bringing farmers, food producers and eaters together. The free festival features sustainably sourced menus from over fifty food vendors, craft beers, wines and cocktails in addition to ticketed food experiences. This year’s festival is bringing back a handful of ticketed, intimate food classes as well as free culinary demos.
