Some of the food vendors competing include The Cow and The Curd, Mama's Meatballs, Oink and Moo BBQ, Humpty's Dumplings and Kono Pizza.

A panel of guest judges will vote on execution, creativity, appearance and taste to choose the winners in categories like finger foods, Italian, Latin/Mexican, sandwiches, vegan and dessert.

The public is invited to sample all the food options, too. While all of the free general admission tickets have already been snapped up, there are still $25 all-access tickets available.

Included is early access to sample the 60 vendors (one tasting ticket per vendor). All-access ticket holders can enter The Fillmore at 10 a.m.

Made in America will take place Saturday, Sept. 1, and Sunday, Sept. 2, on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The 2018 headliners are Nicki Minaj, Post Malone and Meek Mill.
