    We expect to see the return of Hops & Barley Booth this year! This booth, located in the American Adventure Pavilion, has been a favorite stop for All-American eats — including smoked and grilled BBQ favorites.

    The Smoked Beef Brisket and Pimento Cheese on Griddled Toast has been a DFB favorite for a couple of years now, and we’re so glad it’s returning in 2017.

    Did someone say Crispy Chicken?! We are all over this new addition to one of our favorite booths, Farm Fresh!

    The Food and Wine Festival always comes through with some inventive vegetarian dishes as well. Last year, Spicy Hummus Fries from the Morrocco Booth were a DFB Best of the Fest Pick and we are psyched that they return this year!

    The Brazil Booth has carved out a place on our perennial “must try” list, with delicious stews and a Crispy Pork Belly with Black Beans, Onions, Avocado, and Cilantro that pairs beautifully with Xingu Black Beer. In 2016, we couldn’t get enough of the Escondidinho de Carne — or “Little Hidden One” — Layered Meat Pie. So we’re super happy to see it back!

    Free Marketplace Discovery Passports have become a tradition and a favorite way to keep track of all the must-have dishes on your list. In recent years, gluten free and vegetarian items have also been noted! In 2016, stickers replaced stamps as a time-saving measure.
