Smithsonian Food History Weekend Festival 2018

November 3, 2018 - 10:00am to November 4, 2018 - 5:30pm

The Food History Festival is a free day of hands-on learning, live demonstrations, talks, and stories exploring the past, present, and future of regional food cultures in America. Talented chefs, local organizations, experts, museum curators, students, and more will be on hand to spark conversation, lead activities, and dig into food history with museum visitors of all ages. All activities are free.

More details about the 2018 festival—including the schedule, participants, and subjects—will be announced in the coming weeks. For the most up-to-date information, sign up for the Smithsonian Food History newsletter.

One important thing to know about the Smithsonian Food History Festival: there are no food tastings available at this festival—just food history! There are, however, lots of things to do. And if you do get hungry while visiting, the museum has a cafeteria on the Lower Level.
