Festival Food Booths
In 2018, the DCA Food and Wine Festival featured fourteen Festival Marketplaces — aka Food Booths (plus the Festival Beer Garden)! These booths, similar to what you find at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, offered appetizer-sized portions of dishes as well as cocktails, beer, and wine. We expect a similar number of booths in 2019.
Be sure to click through to all of the individual pages to see photos and details about every drink and dish!
We hope to see LA Style back, along with the Korean Barbecue Beef Short Rib Tacos with kimchi slaw, again this year!
I Heart Artichokes brought back the Fried Artichoke Carbonara with garlic aioli and smoked bacon in 2018, along with the Artichoke Cake Pop!
And we hope the Meyer Lemon Macaron is at the Citrus Grove again in 2019!
