Food Concessions

Open every day of the Festival from 11 a.m. until close

Every year we offer cuisines that transport diners to lands foreign and familiar, bringing them closer with every bite. Come along on a culinary journey inspired by immigrant communities in the United States, the whimsy of the circus, and the Festival’s legacy on the National Mall.

Join us in a 50th anniversary toast with the return of a longtime Festival favorite: the lime fizz. Our beverage stands also offer fresh pink lemonade, limeade, and fruit smoothies. Each concessions stand also carries bottled water and a selection of sodas.
