The LA Food Fest has transformed itself into a brand new concept, growing from a street food-focused event to a more all-inclusive culinary spectacle. For two days and three nights, guests will indulge in delicious eats from more than 100 food vendors and award-winning restaurants. The festival is hosting new features such as the live culinary stage, an artisanal LA farm shop, games on the lawn, a food porn cinema and more. LA Food Fest begins with a family-style dinner in the Rose Garden on Friday, July 8, with chefs Johnny Ray Zone (Howlin' Ray's), Chris Oh (Hanjip, Seoul Sausage) and Nguyen Tran (Starry Kitchen x Button Mash). The main event, MRKT, follows on Saturday, July 9 and Sunday, July 10 at 11am, where attendees can pay for individual dishes as they hop from vendor to vendor. Tickets can also be purchased for individual brunches, lunches and dinners in the Rose Garden. Don't miss this delicious smorgasbord—and, of course, don't forget to wear your stretchy pants.
