Second Place: Broad Appétit
Third Place: Lebanese Food Festival
If Richmond goes into a baklava-induced food coma the first weekend in June, there's a longstanding reason. The Richmond Greek Festival, running May 31-June 3 this year, is the mother figure with a Facebook page, and sets the standard for all the festivals that followed. Foodies flock to Broad Appétit downtown every summer because the vendors are Richmond's finest restaurateurs. Smaller but equally serious, the Lebanese Food Festival May 18-20 is in its 28th year, with a mouth-watering menu, dancing and entertainment in Glen Allen.
