Travelling to eat is a must, and with food festivals, you can cover a lot of eating in one day. These are the festivals in 2020 worth travelling for.
1. Melbourne Food & Wine Festival (19 to 29 March)

2. Masters of Taste (5 April)
For one day only, foodies in Los Angeles flock to the Rose Bowl Stadium for bites and cocktails from the top culinary, beverage and sweet masters in the area. Plus, it’s all for a good cause: 100 per cent of the proceeds benefit local homeless service Union Station.
