Taste spicy foods from around Ohio this weekend

How about spending the weekend sampling delicious food, all for a good cause! We like the sound of that. Columbus Crave, one of our sister publications, is sponsoring a brand-new event June 28 to 30. It's called ZestFest Midwest, and it's your chance to taste spicy foods from around Ohio.

At ZestFest, you'll find salsas, spices and more that will give your taste buds a kick of flavor. The weekend also includes celebrity chefs, entertainment and activities. Plus, it benefits the Children's Hunger Alliance.

ZestFest Midwest takes place at the Ohio Expo Center. Head there on Friday, June 28 from 1-9 p.m., Saturday, June 29 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, June 30 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets cost $10 Friday and $12 Saturday or Sunday. And bring the kids, because those 12 and younger are free. Learn more or purchase tickets at zestfestmidwest.com.
