    One could spend every weekend and many weeknights celebrating food in Columbus this summer. Here are my top picks for fun food events:

    Ohio Food and Wine Festival – July 9 – 10 – I’m so bummed we’ll be in Canada during this great event at the North Market!

    PB&Jazz Concert Series – Saturdays July 10, August 14, and September 11 – Free hour long kids concerts from 12 – 1 at the Topiary Park behind the Main Library.  Bring your picnic lunch and a blanket.

    Goodale Park Music Series Potlucks – Sundays July 11-August 22 – Bring a dish to a food blogger hosted potluck starting at noon, fab free music starts at 1. I’m hosting for the fo/mo/deep concert August 15!

    Jazz and Ribs Fest - July 23 – 25 – always a blazing hot good time

    Gardening Like The Forest - talks starting July 23 – Permaculture expert Dave Jacke will give talks and workshops hosted by OEFFA throughout the state in late July and early August. I’m attending the Columbus talk on July 30 at a minimum.

    Too Many Cooks Canning Jam – August 1 – Rachel will be leading a jam making workshop at Wild Goose.  $10 for a good time and jar of jam to take home!

    Hill’s Kids Day – August 21 – Local vendors will present kid friendly activities complete with tasty samples, including a demonstration by Rachel.

    Freshwater Farms Ohio Fish & Shrimp Festival – September 17 – 19 – We went last year and had a blast. Ever pet a sturgeon? If you go to the Shrimp Fest, you can check that one off your bucket list.


    I live to eat and eat to live, planning every meal to include as much local and seasonal abundance as possible. I often wear purple and never refuse a drink.
