10 Years of Broad Appétit

10 Years of Broad Appétit

This past weekend was one for the books for food lovers in Richmond, between the Richmond Greek Festival, which was celebrating its 42nd year this year, and Broad Appétit, which marked 10 years with this year’s festival! We kicked off our weekend on Thursday with a trip to the Greek Festival, giving ourselves a two-day festival break before heading to the eating marathon otherwise known as Broad Appétit.

We stuck to our own advice and got there early with a game plan in mind, mapping out the vendors we wanted to hit most and noting their proximity to each other. After all, when a festival is hot and crowded, it is always best to have a plan. In celebration of 10 years of Broad Appétit, we’re sharing the 10 best things we enjoyed from this year’s festival. (A special thanks to our friend Nicky who joined us and made eating all of this delicious food a little easier!)
