The fifth annual Smithsonian Food History Weekend Festival is coming this weekend! The theme is ‘Power Through Food’.
Head over to the National Museum of American History between November 7-9 to participate in the various (mostly free) events taking place.
The festival always includes live cooking demonstrations, talks, hands-on activities, book signings, films, and more. Plus this year, the focus is on migrant and refugee women and organizations.
The one thing that isn’t on offer, are food tastings, it’s about knowledge people. And food porn. You can buy food in the cafe/cafeteria.
Find the schedule of the live cooking demonstrations and other activities here.
And you can join the opening black-tie Gala on November 7th, featuring chef José Andrés. Or the Last Call: Brewing History After-Hours event ($45) on November 8th, which includes beer tastings and conversations with brewers. (This event is sold out.)
Festival is free; food/drink will cost, along with the special events.
