Hungry for something a little more out-there than your standard food festival fare? You’ve come to the right place.

Here are 20 of the world’s most outrageous food festivals:

Krenmarkt Horseradish Festival in Baiersdorf, Germany

Most of us know horseradish as a condiment in a squeeze pack from Arby’s that tastes like spicy mayonnaise.

In no way is horseradish just spicy mayonnaise.

To learn more about everything that horseradish really is, check out Krenmarkt in Baiersdorf. The town of Baiersdorf celebrates the festival at the end of horseradish harvest and includes just about any food you can think of that is prepared with horseradish.
