There’s no better place to hold a festival dedicated solely to the art of fermented foods than our festival-obsessed city known for its vibrant food scene. On Oct. 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., more than 40 vendors, brewers and artisans will converge on the grounds of Barr Mansion (10463 Sprinkle Road) with one thing in common: their love of fermentation.
