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 Catalan street festival food and Armenian feasting traditions. Enjoy modern dishes that represent recent immigrant and migrant influences on time-honored favorites.

Keep an ear out for a friendly “holler” from the arabber fruit vendors, a Folklife Festival tradition. The Diggs family from Baltimore returns this summer to continue forty years of offering freshly sliced watermelon, pineapple, and more. Stop by their cart to learn more about arabbers’ past and present role in East Coast city living.
