Ok, so let's be honest. We love good festival but more than a festival, we love good festival food!
It doesn't matter what the festival theme is about, we are there to not just enjoy the festival, whether it's art and crafts, music, history/hertitage, etc., but we live in a "foodie crazed culture" where we love to eat and post to social media the tasty, wild and crazy things we are eating at these festivals!
There are so many festivals today centered by food as well. There's the Poke Salat festival in Arab of course, a cornbread festival, the Peanut Festival in Dothan, and Banana Pudding Festival, Chocolate Festival in Gadsden, and every other imagineable festival centered around a particular food.
These are all great and we as American flock to them to sample all the best and most outlandish type of cuisine out there for the experiece and memories we carry long after.
What are your personal favorite festivals and most unique you've seen and experienced? What are some of your favorite festival foods???
Did anyone try this at this year's Farm & Poultry Expo in Boaz this year?
Deep Fried Kool-Aid, y'all! Proof that you can deep fry anthing!
Most festival food is something that you can't get at restaurants or fast food, or even make at home. It's the cotton candy, freshly squeezed lemondade, chicken on a stick, shaved ice, and everything fried you can imagine and more!
If your mouth is watering for this sweet, salty, gooey, authentic festival food, never fear. There are numerous festivals and events annually around Marshall County where you can sample the very best in festival cuisine! The 50th Annual Boaz Harvest Festival will feature a smorgasboard of all these yummy treats mentioned--mark your foody calendars--October 3-4 in downtown Boaz!
See ya there for some good food, music, and fun!
