We can’t wait to see you all again! – With love, the Flavored Nation Team

Our Story


Through extensive research and public polling, our team of culinary experts identified the most iconic dishes of every state in America. Once we determined these iconic dishes, we brought them all (and the best chefs from those states to cook them) to the inaugural Flavored Nation Event in 2018 in Columbus, Ohio. Celebrate the 50 dishes that make America delicious as you eat your way around the country in a weekend celebration of food, drink and entertainment. We hope you’re hungry. We can’t wait for you to taste America! A portion of proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to the Columbus State Foundation to assist in the construction of Mitchell Hall.

The Food!


50 states. 50 iconic dishes! Here are this year’s Flavored Nation food selections. Scroll over each state to see its dish. Every state’s iconic dish* will be featured at the 2019 Flavored Nation event to enjoy. Taste an old favorite or try something new! Admission to the event includes 10 food sample tickets with the option to purchase more. Maybe if you don’t eat the day before, you can eat your way through America!
