Great American Food Festivals

America has a fascinating range of cities to enjoy and explore. And each city has its own particular cuisine that makes each visit particularly savoury! So if you're looking for a delicious way to enjoy our nation's best cities and their food, then why not check out some of these highly tempting upcoming food festivals!

Las Vegas
As one of the fastest growing cities in America, Las Vegas has a lot going for it. And the forthcoming Las Vegas Food and Wine Festival from September 10 to 13 promises to showcase this emergent city's fascinating cuisine.

Featuring an array of famous executive chefs and also a particularly tempting chocolate mini-festival, the festival makes the most of Las Vegas' partying reputation by being held at the Red Rocks Casino and Resort.

For those new to casinos, it can often be worthwhile getting in a little practice before hitting the gaming tables. And thankfully, there are many online casino sites such as Europalace that offer a variety of casino games that you can practice on at home.

Such sites frequently feature welcome bonuses that offer free spins on selected games so that you can make any beginner's mistakes without spending too much money. And Europalace also includes a handy blog that outlines the best methods for gambling in a safe yet fun way, such as through setting budgets, making small bets, and choosing appropriate games. 

Los Angeles
Just a few of hours drive from Las Vegas is the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles. Boasting an endless series of diverse neighbourhoods and communities, you can spend weeks in this amazing city and still find something new and surprising.

The Los Angeles Food and Wine Festival is now in its fifth year of operation. And this year the festival takes place from August 27 to 30 in three separate glamorous locations ranging from the upmarket Beverley Hills, to the iconic Hollywood, and the very hip Downtown.

Whilst in Los Angeles, it's a good idea to head up high into the Hollywood Hills to get a good overview over this magical city. And the Griffith Observatory is perfectly situated for capturing this amazing panorama – as long as the smog has cleared!

San Francisco
And few cities capture the cosmopolitan charm of the old and new as much as San Francisco. With the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, modernist Transamerica Pyramid skyscraper, and beautiful bay area to view, it's a wonderful place to spend some time in.

As San Francisco is a fascinating melting pot of different nationalities, it's only fair that the city should have one of the best food festivals in existence. 

And on August 15 and 16 the San Francisco Street Food Festival highlights the best in convenient and tasty food from the chic Pier 70 location. 

With over 100 independent food businesses in attendance, and a mouth-watering selection of different cuisines from all over the globe, it'll provide you with just enough fuel to navigate San Francisco's infamous hills!

  9. I love events like this! We have a local food festival in town each year but I always forget until I'm too broke for a ticket. Oops!

  10. I would love to attend one of these food festivals and just eat my way around. It's just that some of them are so expensive to attend though.

  11. Being married to a chef has really influenced the way I travel, I had to say - we often choose our destinations based on food (which explains why we so often end up in Paris!) I've heard great things about the food in San Francisco, hoping to et there one day soon.

  12. These all sound so fun! I would love to eat my way through them! Thanks for sharing


  13. Yum-O! I wish I live near one of these places because I'd be in a heartbeat. Have a good weekend!

  14. Great post Kim, so you know I love food! I've have not been to any food festivals in these cities you mentioned except in Seattle, and San Francisco, I've been to a lot of those there, otherwise only a few in Europe. I like when they have great tastings from local chefs too. Wish you a happy weekend. /Madison

  15. The opportunity to attend a food festival has been my dream for a long time, I probably would eat myself into a food coma though but hey, it's worth it!

  16. Hey Alice!
    It's been so long, I don't even think that you remember me now!
    I've always wanted to visit LA, perhaps because the West Coast life is so romanticized by the pop-culture and mainstream media and after reading about the LA Food and Wine festival, I'm sold! I am a foodie, perhaps its one of the biggest reasons why I've been having such a hard time losing weight, the second one being sheer laziness/procrastination.
    I found the post really informative and good.

    Loads of love,

  17. All of these food festival destinations are also fantastic travel destinations.. combine the two and you've got yourself one hell of a culture-packed adventure! Thanks for sharing these Kim, you've got me dreaming of food and travel now :)

  26. My dad and his lady went to Vegas recently for a wine tasting kinda festival. I love wine & whiskey (hehe). On the contrary, one side of my family consists of alcoholics and heroin addicts. I stay away from alchohol and opiates.
    Wine tasting I would give a go. Definitely always wanted to visit San Franscisco!

  27. The US always have great food from every east to west. I always watch the Food Network Shows for some food inspiration. Most of the time, I get hungry after watching them.
