As Lexington's biggest celebration of locally-crafted fare, food is at the epicenter of CRAVE. We take pride in being Lexington's best way to find your new favorite place to eat!
This year's festival will feature around 40 food vendors – from fine dining to food trucks, hot chicken to award-winning confections. Each vendor will offer a selection for $3-5, as well as other price points, to encourage patrons to try lots of different options!
