2010 Summer Food Festivals

8 03 2010

It’s about this time of year when I start itching to plan some traveling over the summer.  Although this year Matt and I may be laying low, I thought it would be fun to compile a list of summer food festivals around the United States for those of you starting to plan your warm weather escapes early.  Enjoy! (**Disclaimer: I can’t vouch for any of these festivals. I just did the research and provided the links!)
