It’s quite possible that the very best part of summertime may be the food and drink. And there is no shortage of either this month.
The best food and drink events in July include the iconic Nathan’s Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island (which is definitely not for the faint of heart). The Singapore Food Festival. The world’s largest food festival, Taste of Chicago. Korea’s Daegu Chicken and Beer (Chimac) Festival. And our personal favorite, the deliciously sweet National Cherry Festival.
