Upcoming festivals w/ food

I finally went to the Sons of Norway Lutefisk & Meatball dinner and had a blast (and actually liked the lutefisk). Now I'm seeking out other events that might give me a chance to try some new dishes. Here's what I've found through December. If anyone has been to one of these and can provide input or add any other events, that would be great!

Chinese Food Festival - 11/17-18 Chinatown, LA, chinesefoodfestivalla.com

Julemarked Scandinavian Christmas Mart - 11/24, Danish Cultural Center, Yorba Linda, danishchurchsocal.com

Indio International tamale Festival - 12/1-2, downtown Indio, tamalefestival.net

Swedish Christmas Fair - 12/2, Shrine Expo Center, LA, www.swea.org/losangeles

Celtic Christmas Fair - 12/2, Soka University, Aliso Viejo, occelticfestival.com (they have haggis!)

      Also purported to be not that great. You're probably better off during your own tour of San Gabriel Valley than the fiasco that Chinatown tries to hold.
