Gigantic Meat Festivals That Are Awesome
When I think about summer, I think about cooking out. I think about steaks, burgers, brats, chicken, fish, veggies and all the amazing food you can grill up outdoors during the summer months. There are a lot of festivals that focus on meat. The main course.
There are plenty of festivals dedicated to all kinds of different themes. Perhaps you want to go to a cheeseburger festival, a sno-cone festival, lavender festival (yeah, they exist), rubber duck festival or something entirely different, odds are you can find a festival that will engage you.
I love food festivals. It's fun to try new food from different vendors that offer different styles and ethnic tastes. Meat is the one thing I want to try at every festival. It could be chicken gizzards, chicken fingers, cheesesteak sandwiches, corn dogs and the list goes on. I lean towards savory food more than sweet. A good savory meat dish goes a lot further with my belly, sweet dishes are good but not my preference.
I want to hit some festivals before the end of the year so I looked up some different meat festivals in Michigan in 2022. According to google, there are a nice variety to choose from. From bacon and burgers to "green egg" festivals, I am certain that you will find something tasty to satisfy your taste buds at any of these festivals and I need to fill up the tank so I can hit the road to enjoy these events myself. My first experience at a food festival was the Taste of Chicago, 30 years ago. That was amazing and I look forward to exploring new festivals like these, check out the list.
