One city, four days, and all five senses. 


Fire, Flour & Fork is a four-day gathering for the food curious, November 1st-4th in and around Richmond, Virginia. It celebrates the best the Richmond region has to offer: its complex history, its rich artistic community and its established and rising culinary stars.  What to expect: a mix of dining events, behind-the-scenes tours, demonstrations, talks from food and beverage producers, cookbook authors,  chefs, bartenders and bakers.

Many of our events will reflect 2018's theme: The Power of the Recipe Box, looking at the stories recipes tell both within families and within social and political movements fueled by food.

The signature events below are just part of the three Dozen events during Fire, Flour & Fork 2018!

Signature Events


Every day during FFF, along with our many guest chef lunches and dinners, talks and tours, a signature event with multiple chefs is held around a theme. 



Thanksgiving Throwdown, where Virginia takes on  Massachusetts for the title of first (and best) Thanksgiving.


Around the World/Around the Lake where you'll travel from Central America to the Pacific Islands and beyond at Libbie Mill Midtown. 



Smoke on the Water rolls the roasted meats, fish and vegetables over to Henricus. 


John Dabney Dinner, honoring the Lambert family in VMFA's Marble Hall. 



More than a meal; multi-sensory and meaningful. Each signature event dives deep into a compelling culinary story and provides many layers of experience. We've saved a seat for you--you don't have to worry that the tickets will sell out in three minutes!

Here’s one food festival I won’t be missing. Neither should you!
