NEWS FLASH: The Downtown Lynchburg Association is throwing the first-ever Lynchburg Food Fest on Saturday, May 20th, 2017 from 11am-5pm. The festivities will be held at Riverfront Park (1100 Jefferson Street, Lynchburg, VA) and here are 3 reasons we absolutely CAN’T WAIT for #LYHFOODFEST:
1.) THE FOOD. (well, obviously.) Anytime I can sample my way through the best local cuisine from nearly 50 of the region’s best food trucks, restaurants, and caterers, I’m SO there. From tacos to barbecue to gourmet grilled cheese to artisan chocolates, this event will have delectables to please every palate. Just look at this list of food & retail vendors:
2.) THE FAMILY FUN. When you’ve got little ones, having family-friendly entertainment for them is essential. Besides, it’s a Saturday. I want to spend time with my babes. I don’t want to hire a babysitter just so I can go out. Ain’t got time for that. #LYHFOODFEST is a family-friendly event. Here’s the proof: there will be a kidz zone, family activities, live music, and more. PLUS, kids 12 and under get in FREE (insert heart-eyes emoji here). Tickets are just $5 for ages 13 and up.
3.) THE ULTIMATE FOODIE PACKAGE. Ummm yes. You had me at foodie. If you want to get the most out of your festival experience, you can upgrade to the ultimate foodie package for just $20. It’s a VIP pass that includes admission, a tasting glass, a tasting band, and a food tray.
