What follows is a list of Food festivals in and around NY, NJ, RI and CONN I thought I'd share. I am using 2011 info so the dates next year will be different in most cases. Links provided where available. The 1st two links are a list of all Food and Pet festivals - best sites I found.

PLEASE TELL ME YOUR SUGGESTIONS of what is missing.... what are the BEST Seafood, Food, BBQ, WINE, Beer, and other festivals? Best Wine Tours? Best Wine tastings?
