The 5 Best Things To Eat At Boston Calling, What You Must Try

Memorial Day weekend has become synonymous with one of the biggest festivals on the east coast. With three prefect weather days, this year is no exception. Having the pleasure of once again attending the festival, here are some of the best things to eat at Boston Calling. I hit the Harvard grounds early to get the scoop on all the local food options that will be here throughout the weekend. I indulged in the dirty work and tried many of the most unique tastes. Somebody had to do it. Boston Calling makes a solid effort to showcase local cuisines. This includes small businesses, food trucks, and homegrown chefs. If New England seafood is not your thing at a concert, you have plenty of other choices. In fact, it’s hard to think of a cuisine type that is not present on the festival grounds. “Boasting hundreds of standout dishes ranging from handcrafted dumplings to mouth-watering fried chicken to authentic Mexican street food, this year’s festival rolls out an impressive collection of culinary gems, award-winning chefs, and returning fan favorites – all local to the Greater Boston region,” the festival said via a press release. Furthermore, many beverage distributors made their festival presence an experience. Watching a set from the Truly top deck allowed you to really take in the crowd. The same held true for the Jack Daniels tavern that rested alongside the VIP area stage right of the Green Stage. Before we get into the tastes you can't miss, below is a reminder of the full lineup. Traditionally, Boston Calling offers a great blend of festival favorites and local flavors. This year will certainly follow that pattern, offering something for everyone.
