14 Festivals in Missouri That Food Lovers Should Not Miss

It’s no secret that Missourians love food. As a result, the state hosts many different food-related festivals throughout the year in locations all across the state. Some are simple and focused on one thing like a chili cook-off, but others are major events including rides, live music, crafts and so much more. Here are just a few of the food festivals coming up in the next couple of months and into the summer.
