Fort Worth native Leon Bridges is the headliner for Fortress Festival, Fort Worth’s two-day music festival happening this coming weekend. But he won’t be the only one repping his hometown: Fortress Festival’s food lineup is going to be heavy on Fort Worth favorites.

Avoca Coffee Roasters, Melt Ice Creams, Righteous Foods, and Salsa Limón will be among the locally-based restaurants and vendors serving up dishes for music fans. Righteous Foods is creating a dish with a cinnamon-dusted churro served warm with a side of Tea de Chocolate, dubbed “Super Churro-ganism” in a nod to one of the headlining bands, Superorganism. Salsa Limón is also creating carnitas and chicken tacos in Fortress Festival-themed colored tortillas.

Meanwhile, Fort Worth’s Spiral Diner owners Amy McNutt and James Johnston put together a Vegan Village joined by DFW vendors like The Corn Dog Guy, which serves vegan corn dogs; Latina-women-owned bakery Reverie Bakeshop; and fare from Vegan Vibrationz, which operates a popular stand at the Shed at the Dallas Farmers Market.

For those with VIP tickets, Jenny Castor of Luckybee Kitchen is prepping a three-course meal with soft-shell crab and dauphin potatoes on Sunday, April 28 for $29 in advance and $33 on the day of the show. (An additional exclusive VIP meal will be soon be announced for Saturday, April 27). For those craving a burger, there’s always Hopdoddy Burger Bar, which is one of the festival’s official sponsors this year.

In addition to Bridges and Superorganism, the festival’s performer lineup includes CHVRCHES, Khruangbin, Rae Sremmurd, Tank & The Bangas, Tinashe, Bobby Session, and more. Score tickets here.
