Food Festival

A food festival is a festival, usually held annually, that uses food, often produce, as its central theme. These festivals have always been a means of uniting communities through celebrations of harvests and giving thanks for a plentiful growing season. They can be traced back thousands of years to celebrating the arrival of harvest time, the autumnal equinox, and the honoring of earth gods. Some food festivals are also harvest festivals. Note this list includes festivals focused on beverages, such as wine festivals and beer festivals, as well.
