ABOUT

The Food History Festival is a free day of hands-on learning, live demonstrations, talks, and stories exploring the past, present and future of food and community 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.

Details about the 2017 Festival schedule, participants, and subjects will be announced late summer 2017. For the most up-to-date information on schedules, participants, and more, sign up for the Smithsonian Food History newsletter here.

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.
