Chefs for Farmers returns Nov. 1-3 as the best food festival in America. Here’s how to attend.

Chefs for Farmers returns to Dallas this weekend with a three-day slate of solid eating, drinking, celebrating, mingling, networking and, if the weather forecast stays true, incredible fall weather.

The 10th annual festival, again directed by CFF co-founder Iris Midler, kicks off Friday, November 1, with two new events. Chef John Tesar (Knife steakhouse) will host a cheffy BBQ at 18th & Vine restaurant led by Tesar and a couple of his culinary friends — Scott Gottlich and Gerald Sombright. (The event is sold out.)

A few blocks away, chefs Alex Astranti, Misti Norris, and Justin Carlisle will host a dinner at Uchiba (the event is also sold out).

The following day, November 2, you can join a small group of chefs on a farm tour that benefits the Seed Project Foundation. This afternoon event includes food and drinks.

Later that evening, it’s the Street Food Night Market, a global tasting event that features a dozen chefs cooking street snacks at Victory Park Lane & High Market Street near American Airlines Center.

Then on Sunday, November 3, you and a few thousand of your neighbors take over Dallas Heritage Village near downtown Dallas for CFF’s Main Event. More than 100 chefs and mixmasters will be serving dishes that feature locally grown produce and proteins in an incomparable outdoor setting. There will be music. And ice cream, too. A few tickets remain for both VIP access (early admission at 2 p.m.) and General Admission (access at 2:30 p.m.). The event wraps at 6 p.m., just before the sun sets.

Info and tickets for all CFF events here.
