The Voodoo Music + Arts Experience lands on the City Park fest grounds on October 28-30 for three days of music and shenanigans on four stages right before Halloween. It also happens to be one of the most anticipated food fests in town this fall.

If you’ve never been, it's basically a massive party in City Park. This year, Tool, Arcade Fire, and the Weekend are headlining, but there are over 65 acts performing. There will  also be tons of art vendors, a craft beer garden and more bars.

In terms of food, Voodoo has teamed up with Greg Reggio from the Louisiana Restaurant Association to curate the Forked Up Food Court— a major departure from previous years— which will feature numerous local eateries and food options including New Orleans-style dishes, vegetarian, vegan and even gluten-free eats.

Here are the vendors, and some of the food offerings to be on the lookout for.
