Yummy LA Food Events In October You Need To Know About

Not only will October bring a nice (and welcome) fall chill to the air, but it’s come to my attention that it’s going to be one yummylicious month in Los Angeles. I’m already having trouble deciding where to go and when — if only I could go to them all! Check out the run down of all the cool L.A. food events happening around town.

L.A. Donut Festival

Oct. 3 at the Mad Ave Graffiti House

YES THIS IS REAL! Get so excited! There will be donut sampling and donut burgers for VIP ticket holders.

Artisanal LA Fall Show


Oct. 10-11 at The Reef in Downtown

Within about 10 minutes, I dropped about $40 at the Artisanal LA Spring Show (which includes that heavenly s’mores above), so here’s a tip: PACE YOURSELF. Artisanal LA shows are big, beautiful, amazing, and overwhelming all at the same time. Take your time, walk around, get samples, and take it all in. Then spend all your money. It’s the best. 😉

Just wanna get your drink on? Well, you’re in luck. Burbank is throwing its very first beer fest and you’re invited. More than 85 craft beers will be on tap during two sessions. Bringing a designated driver is definitely recommended.
