Calendar Highlight: Feeding Frenzy

Mark your calendar for some of the best of the food fests, Nov. 6 and Nov. 12.

BY November 4, 2016


Whether you’re involved in the cooking or just the eating, Thanksgiving can seem like somewhat of a sport. There’s certainly some serious endurance involved. So, we’re choosing to approach November’s not one but two food festivals as somewhat of a practice round. Join us in putting on our best elastic-waisted pants, and head out to these delicious occasions for good eats and good causes.


Taste of the Town

Nov. 6, JetBlue Park

Close to 30 restaurants will be participating in this Junior League of Fort Myers event, now in its 34th year. Now, we know quantity doesn’t always indicate quality—but in this case, have no fear. The vendors doling out dishes to the beat of local bands include favorites like Artisan Gelato by Norman Love, 11:Eleven Café, Tacos & Tequila, Cru, Doc Ford’s and more.


BaconFest Naples

Nov. 12, Naples Airport

We certainly subscribe to the “bacon makes everything better” philosophy, so you can count us among the thousands who will be indulging in all kinds of sweet and salty pork creations at this celebration. Even better this year is its pairing with an inaugural same-day 5K fun run to help ease the guilt. And even better still, the proceeds go toward multiple organizations fighting childhood hunger in Southwest Florida.
