Zestfest, 2008. Fort Worth. Amon G Carter Hall.


Zestfest has developed, in a few short years, to be one of Fort Worth's most popular events. Today, Saturday, and Sunday in the Amon G. Carter Exhibit Hall. $10 at the door and it is well worth it.

From the website:
ZestFest 2008 is the ultimate party for bold and flavorful food enthusiasts. Hosted by Chile Pepper Magazine in Fort Worth, Texas ZestFest will be action-packed. Cooking demos by celebrity chefs, live music, interactive contests and thousands of bold food samples will make September 5-7, 2008 the zestiest weekend of the year!

Thanks for the reminder and the encouragement. The $10 was a discouragement, but I'll give it a shot.

Tell me what you think.

Crowded! Long, slow lines on most aisles.

What I could get to was well worth it. There were plenty of labels and tastes you don't find in the grocery store.

Next year I think I'll take off Friday afternoon and go, or hit it at opening time on the weekend.

I knew that it had become very successful but sounds like more success than expected. I'm like you though, if it's too crowded I just don't enjoy it.

By the way, you do know the history of Zestfest?

What I know of Zestfest I learned today. Before this, it was mainly a matter of "The entry costs HOW MUCH?". :-)

Chili Magazine started Zestfest under the leadership of -- Joel Gregory.

I had friends at Travis Ave. Baptist Church when Joel Gregory was pastor there. They adored him.
