Description: Throughout the years, across the country, food festivals, state fairs, national cooking competitions, and brand-name sweepstakes are held. Many of these celebrations -- like the Garlic Festival in Gilroy California and the Mushroom Festival in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania -- honor local harvests. Some honor entire regions, and still others celebrate our agricultural traditions.

  • Lily Flugrath's Creamy Crab Bisque from the National Hard Crab Derby in Maryland 
  • Robert Baker's Tex-Mex Fried Pies from the State Fair of Texas
