The "Food Fest!" website lists food festivals and food-related events across the state of Florida. Website visitors can find events using a calendar or map. Each festival listing includes a description of activities, location, contact information, and date.

"Food Fest!" announces the re-launch of the "Food Fest Guide" website, an online community for Florida foodies interested in food festivals and other food-related events across the state. Event organizers, promoters, vendors, and attendees will find lots of new features you don't want to miss out on:

  • Event organizers and promoters can now add events to the calendar themselves
  • There's a new interactive map featuring upcoming events for attendees or vendors wishing to find events nearby or in a specific city
  • There are forums to discuss particular events, and for vendors to lend and receive advice
  • The new vendor directory provides vendors free publicity, and gives event organizers a list of vendors to solicit for their events
  • Users can now subscribe to an RSS feed of upcoming festivals and events
  • Users can request email notifications for new or upcoming events

Besides the new additions, the annual event calendar has been upgraded to display both a list view and calendar view, and the festival details include the date, location, contact information, and scheduled activities. The "Food Fest!" website is a great resource for planning weekend getaways, spontaneous day trips, or "staycations."

"Florida's food festivals are ideal entertainment for the whole family," says Joan Steinbacher, author of "Food Fest! Your Complete Guide to Florida's Food Festivals. "Besides scrumptious food, they feature a variety of amusements--musical acts, arts and crafts, car shows, kid-friendly activities, and much more."
