Best Multiplatform Festival 

Eat Real

There's a reason Eat Real managed to draw a staggering 70,000 people in its very first year: Street food is popular, as are festivals, so it's pretty much a given that a multiday street food festival will be an instant success, especially around here. But there's more to it than that. In addition to the numerous taco trucks, cupcake carts, and food-and-beverage booths (all selling food for no more than $5), Eat Real also showcases numerous other aspects of the growing/preparing/eating process. Last year, that meant musical performances; butchering, canning, and preserving competitions; noodle-pulling, pizza-tossing, and kombucha-culturing demonstrations; film screenings; and a slate of local food writers reading stories on a variety of food-related themes (sample topic: "things I've eaten off the street"). Coming once again to Jack London Square for its third iteration in September, it's a food festival that doesn't require you to be an obsessive foodie to appreciate — though we do suggest you come hungry.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
