Eat Real combines a state fair, a street-food festival, and a block party to create a celebration of good food. At the Eat Real Festival, participants learn where food comes from, who grows it, and how to make it.
Eat Real Festival attendance is 100% free of charge, all street food at the festival costs $8 or less, and incorporates delicious, regionally-sourced, and sustainably-produced ingredients.
Eat Real’s mission is to help revitalize regional food systems, build public awareness of and respect for the craft of making good food and to encourage the growth of American food entrepreneurs.
The festival will once again be held at Oakland’s historic Jack London Square on September 22-24, 2017.
