World's Weirdest Food Festivals

Slide 3 of 14

Roadkill Cook-off

While the food at this festival, which takes place the last Saturday of September in Marlinton, West Virginia, doesn't actually involve real roadkill, the dishes are prepared with the kinds of animals that often meet their end in traffic accidents. Specialties have included "South-of-the-Border Mishap"—tacos filled with armadillo, roadrunner and the mysteriously dubbed "hitchhiker."
