While some of these we could get behing (#5), others are a little less…appetizing (#6)…

Americans love food. This fact becomes apparent when you consider the many festivals each year that pay homage to specific kinds. We’re all familiar with barbecues and chili cook-offs, but what about the more unusual foods that have their own annual celebrations?

Mushroom Festival

The Mushroom Festival happens every September in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. More than 100,000 people flock to this Philadelphia suburb to eat mushroom ice cream and take photos of the cutest babies dressed as their favorite fungus.

Sucker Days

Sucker Days in Nixa, Missouri, focuses on one type of fish for two days each May. The festival goes back to the 1960s, and attendees chomp on thousands of pounds of fried suckers.

National Lentil Festival

The National Lentil Festival in Pullman, Washington, serves up free lentil chili all weekend while a local restaurant serves lentil pancakes.
