Founded in 2008, Eat Real Festival is a social venture created to inspire eaters to choose tasty, healthy, good food. Through a vibrant, local festival in Oakland, CA, and a focus on delicious and sustainable “street food,” Eat Real puts eaters in contact with the real people -- the farmers, chefs, and producers -- who make our food. Eat Real Festival will donate a percentage of its profit to several California organizations promoting access to healthy and affordable food, entrepreneurship and economic development.

Things are heating up at Eat Real—we’re really excited about the line-up of street eats including banana leaf wrapped tamales, Italian chick pea pancakes and more, all paired with amazing microbrews during the August 28 - 30 event.

Looking for ways to get into the Eat Real mood? Look no more! We're putting together some fun and tasty treats to get you ready for the Eat Real Festival extravaganza...
