Swirling Acrobats Feastival 2014

Feastival 2014 Recap

In Festivals, Information, Philadelphia by Daryl & Mindi Hirsch9 Comments

Was it worth it to spend the evening at the fifth annual Audi Feastival the night before we left at the crack of dawn for an eleven day trip to Seattle and Italy? As we tiredly relive the experience through our photos in our hotel room in Seattle, the answer is an unequivocal yes.

What Did we Do at Feastival?

We ate exciting food. We drank cool drinks. We saw fringe entertainment. We mingled with chefs and other industry friends. And then we ate some more.

Tasting Tip:  Food events are not only fun but also offer an opportunity to taste lots of dishes and meet the chefs.

Here are some photographic highlights of the evening:

There were some great dishes of which we didn’t get pictures like Le Virtu’s braised lamb neck. There were also some dishes we missed like the super fry frickle from Shake Shake.

Overall, Feastival was a great event and was worth losing pre-trip sleep time. Like we always say to each other, we can sleep later.

Disclosure: We attended Feastival 2014 on a complimentary basis so that we could cover the event.

  1. The food looks delicious! I havent been to a food festival in a long time! I love that first shot of the acrobats. They look like toys.

  2. I completely agree, you can always sleep later. Missing out on a delightful experience would be a shame. Wonderful photos! Makes me wish I was at the Feastival also to sample the food and drinks. 🙂

  3. Oh this feastival looks DIVINE! I am going to check out the information for the next one! 😀

  4. The NOLA shrimp look amazing, as does all the other food. I know it’s hard to keep going some times after travel so long but it is definitely worth it, you can see from all the amazing food you had here!

  5. wow, wow, and more wow. this is amazing and your photography fabulous! by the way, have you ever had finger limes at any of the food events you travel to?
