With barbecue guru Aaron Franklin at the helm of the operation, this Austin food-and-music hybrid festival will host world-class chefs whipping up delectable a la carte eats, served with a side of live music—think s’mores bar, ramen bowl concoctions, homemade buttermilk donuts, and whole hog roasts May 24-27. Last year’s inaugural event featured multiple James Beard award-winning chefs, and music ranging from garage punk to blues and soul. A portion of festival proceeds goes to The SAFE Alliance, a merger of Austin Children’s Shelter and SafePlace, both long-standing agencies serving survivors of abuse.
