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. Now we’re back with some new selections, new chefs and an enhanced experience. 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.
