Back again this year are Chubby Wieners, Wow Bao, County Bar­beque, M Burger and more. See the full list be­low.

While the farm­ers mar­ket isn’t re­turn­ing, the fest will in­clude one-stop shop bode­gas with quick snacks, such as gra­nola bars, trail mix and fresh fruit, and drug store ne­ces­si­ties like pon­chos, ban­dages and sun­block, lo­cated on Colum­bus Drive at the Jack­son Drive and Balbo Av­enue in­ter­sec­tions.
