Ayden Collard Festival
Sept 7-10; Ayden, N.C.
If you love collard greens, you’re officially Southern no matter where you’re from and the Ayden Collard Festival is for you. A number of vendors will be selling samples of greens and there will be a collard-eating contest where whoever can hold down the most pounds of the tart leafy veggie will $100.

His work has appeared in a variety of publications including The Huntsville Times, American Way, Upscale, Time Out, NewsOne, Fatherly and Thrillist, where he served as the founding Atlanta editor. He lives in East Point, Ga., with his amazing wife and daughter, and loves writing, playing alto saxophone, cooking, craft beer, and cocktails. He is admittedly much better at these things than basketball, so never choose him for your pickup team.
