Eat Real Turns Ten

For a taste of street food done right, check out the Eat Real Festival, marking its 10th anniversary this year. Come hungry to sample a variety of regionally sourced, sustainably produced foods and drink, from barbecue and falafel to brews, ciders, and espresso. Sign up for a class on cheesemaking, malting, or fermenting, and check out the Brews & Bites programs, each featuring a restaurant and a brewery. Festival admission is free. Tickets required for classes and special programs. The festival supports the nonprofit Food Craft Institute, an educational institution striving to reshape the U.S. food landscape by creating a permanent sector of viable artisan food businesses. Festival volunteers still needed. Info and tickets: here
