Cool & Unusual Food Events for Autumn

Dear Friends:

Forgive me if there's already a thread somewhere on food festivals. But I just wanted to let everybody know of these events that I found 2003 Rand McNally Road Atlas (of all places!!) Some of these events might have websites where we can get more info. I'll list here only the "food-related" stuff of these festivals.

NORSK HOSTFEST-October 7-11 in Minot, North Dakota. Food: Lutefisk (everybody's favorite), Lefse, Swedish Meatballs, Danish Kringle.

BOGGY BAYOU MULLET FESTIVAL-October 17-19 in Niceville, Florida. Food: Smoked or fried mullet, crawfish bread, boiled peanuts, alligator-on-a-stick (I am not making that last one up.)

CHATSWORTH CRANBERRY FESTIVAL-October 18-19 in Chatsworth, New Jersey. Food: "A cornucopia of cranberry creations" like cranberry mustard, cranberry vinegar, cranberry ice cream, cranberry upsidedown cake, etc.etc...

KONA COFFEE CULTURAL FESTIVAL-November 1-9 in Kailua Kona, Hawaii. (Time to use those airline miles.) Sample different blends of coffee. There is a recipe contest for desserts utilizing Kona coffee. You can sample the entries, perhaps?

CHITLIN' STRUT-November 29 in Salley, South Carolina. The festival title is self-explanatory...chitlins', chitlins' and more chitlins'. More than 20,000 lbs. are eaten on this one day. There is also a Hog-Calling Contest for those who feel the need to holler.
