If you ask me, the food lineup at a music festival is just as important as the show lineup.
After dancing to your favorite bands and racing between stages, sitting down for an impromptu picnic is almost euphoric. And it doesn’t hurt that festivals serve up some delicious dishes.
Firefly Music Festival is no exception. The Delaware fest just released their list of food vendors for 2016, and there’s a bunch of favorites from previous years that I can’t wait to dig into.
Are you heading to Firefly this year? Check out my top recommendations to keep your stomach happy.
1. Tacos from Peace, Love, Tacos
Whether you prefer a classic beef taco or opt for the delicious vegan option (awesomely named Kale Yeah!), these Mexican treats don’t disappoint.
2. Specialty Burger from The Burger Joint
Sometimes you just need a good burger and fries to make it through the late-night sets. You can find The Burger Joint locations all over the festival grounds. In the past, they’ve named their menu items after the headlining acts, like the Californication, a turkey burger with sweet cranberry orange relish and a spring salad mix.
3. Peach, Tomato and Watermelon Salad from Mayhem & Stout
Who said you have to eat garbage while you’re in the Woodlands? This salad will keep you full and refreshed in the June heat. If that doesn’t hit the spot, come back for a BBQ pulled pork sandwich.
4. Chai Ice Cream Float from Coriander Market
Treat yo’self. This creation is two scoops of vanilla bean ice cream served over sweet chai tea. Don’t forget the whipped cream with a touch of cinnamon on top.
5. Crispy Coconut Shrimp from Non-Pacific
See? You really can find a little bit of everything if you take a look around.
