Are These the Best Food Fests in the U.S.?

Written By Scott Joseph On August 9, 2011

Livability.com, a website that professes to know the best places to live in the U.S. (hint: none of them is in a big city), has put together a list of the 10 best food festivals in the country. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never heard of any of these festivals. Heck, I haven’t heard of some of the towns.  I’ll give you a link to Livability.com’s Top Ten Food Festivals website if you want to read more about each foodie fest, but you should know that you have to click to a new page for each listing. That’s an annoying ploy some websites use to increase their page views. If you just want to see the list, here it is:

Livability.com’s Top Ten Food Festivals
1. Biscuit Festival – Knoxville, TN
2. Loaf ‘N Jug Chile & Frijoles Festival – Pueblo, CO
3. Dudie Burger Festival – Tupelo, MS
4. Barbecue Festival – Lexington, NC 
5. RC and Moonpie Festival – Bell Buckle, TN
6. Happy Harry’s RibFest – Fargo, ND
7. Soul Food Cook-Off – Muskogee, OK
