This weekend, Nov. 2 & 3, the Kids Food Festival comes to Union Market in Washington, DC. Originally held in NYC, this special event presented by the Creative Kitchen includes cooking and fitness demos and food entertainment — like the “Balanced Plate Scavenger Hunt” based on USDA ChooseMyPlate.gov guidelines. Activities take place from 10am to 4pm each day. Kids and their parents can also participate in hands-on cooking classes in the James Beard Foundation Future Foodies Pavilion with local chefs including Cathal Armstrong (Restaurant Eve), R.J. Cooper (Rogue 24/Gypsy Soul), and Spike Mendhelsohn (Good Stuff Eatery). Note that tickets are required for the cooking classes, and available here.
