People love food and celebrate it in all forms at festivals all over the world. But be forewarned if you are planning to attend one of's top 10 outlandish food festivals, you won't encounter your average, run-of-the-mill festival foods. Unless, of course, your diet frequently consists of roadkill, frog legs, animal testicles, insects and other similar delicacies.

If you are feeling hungry (and adventurous) venture to one of these festivals to celebrate locally prepared dishes made with ingredients not for the faint of heart. Or, if a truly messy food fight is more your scene, helmet up, dress down, and head to Italy or Spain for some serious food festival fun.
