LA Food & Drink Overview

Los Angeles Oktoberfest 2014 - Beer Festival | Food & Drink Event in LA

The weather is pretty solid in Los Angeles, where year-round sunshine puts people in perpetually festive spirits. Luckily Angelenos can keep the celebration going with all the spectacular food and drink events the City of Angels has to offer.

L.A. is a foodie town for sure, but that doesn’t mean people here are beholden to health and nutrition fads. Those who love the art of grilled cheese will find innumerable dairy-inspired delights at the Grilled Cheese Invitational. Looking for even more caloric corruption? Check out the LA Bacon Festival and find out how many ways the delicious meat can be slipped into everyday foods…like ice cream.

Of course, the pleasant SoCal temps mean locals are continuously donning their swimsuits for trips to the beach. Those who want to watch their waistlines, and avoid homages to cheese and bacon, can look to the LA Vegan Beer & Food Festival for healthier types of consumption.

And being the entertainment capital that it is, L.A. is also home to some of the finest events aimed at promoting alcoholic party favors. The Los Angeles Beer Festival attracts nearly 10,000 thirsty imbibers, and even has brewtastic delicacies like beer cupcakes. If Bacchus is your god of choice, check out LAWineFest and sip on a selection of some 500 wines from around the world.

The Los Angeles food and drink scene is as diverse as the city itself. Expect an assorted, merry crowd when attending these tasty fêtes, but note that food fanaticism is no big secret among the hip 20- and 30-somethings who know the difference between chickens, Cornish hens, and capons (a.k.a. castrated roosters).
