U.S. Food Shows and Festivals
2024-2025 (Consumer & Trade)

The number of themed food shows have increased dramatically as specialty foods continue to gain market share from the overall food and beverage world. Here’s a growing collection of B2C (consumer = bold) and B2B (industry = trade) food events scheduled for the next twelve months.


To make the most of your investment, have meetings set-up for potential buyers (retailers, distributors) well before the show begins. For consumer events, reach-out to regional media contacts to ensure you are included in the coverage. Plan to include strategic partners on your booth (pairing partners) in trade for inclusion in their consumer events. You’ll be shocked at how many new customers you’ll expose your brand to over the calendar year with four or more new partnerships in place. Best of all, you’ll multiply your digital content with partners’ photo and video coverage from each event.

Here's a just small list of B2B and B2C food events across the U.S. running through mid-2025. Check back soon, this list is updated regularly!
