10 Food Festivals to Kick-off Summer in the Southeast

Find out where MoonPies, biscuits, bbq take the main stage

Temperatures are rising and we feel summer stirring here in the Southeast. I’ve selected a sample of festivals with good flavors and culture to help you start the season. Each event celebrates something important to their location, whether it’s a harvested crop or what’s cooking on the grill. All of them are a slice of culture and perfect way to sip, taste and explore your way around the Southeast. (And, now I’m craving a MoonPie.)
