Are fresh ingredients and delicious street food your idea of a good time? Part block party, part state fair, and part street-food festival, the Eat Real Festival offers everything you could ask for from a late summer food extravaganza. Furthermore, entry is free — and once you’re inside, all the food is affordable.
Celebrate regionally sourced and sustainably produced food and learn where it comes from, who grows it, and how to make it. Now in its 10th year, the three-day Jack London Square festival will showcase over 70 sustainably sourced menus, from Aburaya’s Japanese fried chicken to Wahpepah’s Kitchen’s Native American cuisine, and over 40 craft beers, wines, and cocktails. Plus, check out DIY demonstrations on how to make your own cheese and kombucha.
A portion of proceeds from the festival go to the Food Craft Institute, a nonprofit organization that creates and supports handmade, artisan food entrepreneurs in the United States. This year, Eat Real promises even more entertainment and activities, VIP classes, and incredible food than ever in the newly revamped Jack London Square.
Fri.-Sun., Sep. 14-16, 3-10 p.m., free, Jack London Square, EatRealFest.com.
