The Main Course
Eating local is one of the best ways to shift your dollars to local businesses. We are all a part of the local food system and Fork Fest highlights the connection between those who grow, make, and serve our food. Attendees can stroll from booth to booth and try samples from dozens of West Michigan's finest restaurants, farms, grocers, bakeries, and more. All samples and one drink ticket are included in the price of admission. A cash bar will be available.
