Festival of the Arts 2018 Food Jury
February 09, 2018 by Lindsey Pendleton
Did you know that Festival of the Arts takes about one calendar year to plan and execute? Our volunteer co-chairs, committees, and talented jurors take great care selecting over 140 visual artists, 20 food vendors, and 150 performing artists. One of the highlights of the jury process—and certainly the most delicious—is the annual Food Jury that takes place in January.
This year over 50 restaurants, trucks and carts applied. Over the course of four days, the 2018 Festival Co-Chairs, Molly McBride and Paul Tyler, along with the 2018 Food Committee sampled and scored well over 100 items, ranging from turkey legs to portobello tacos, homemade soda floats to edible cookie dough, and more! After all the tasting was complete, final selection were made. See what new treats and crowd favorites the committee selected at Festival of the Arts 2018, April 24-29th!
