Chefs for Farmers dominates the weekend

What started as a small one-day fundraiser a few years ago has ballooned into a massive benefit and foodie festival across four days. Chefs for Farmers is back starting Thursday with Bite Night featuring the entire cast of Top Chef Charleston alums (with Dallas Voice’s Arnold Wayne Jones serving as judge), a sold-out dinner Friday at the Adolphus, a Street Food Market at Victory Park Saturday evening, and the main event that started it all, an afternoon stroll through Oak Lawn Park with tons of food options. Come stuff yourself at some or all and meet some of the best celebrichefs in Texas and beyond.
