If you use Instagram, you’ve definitely drooled over A1 pics of food before. Whether you’re a foodie or just love to indulge in the latest next big thing (we’re talking to you decked out hot dogs, spaghetti donuts and over-the-top cupcakes), you’re bound to find delicious (and totally Instagrammable) fare for you and the kids at InstaYUM this weekend. 

The event on January 13-14 at Garden State Plaza in Paramus is chock-full of Insta-famous NJ and NYC food vendors and artisans including Baonanas, Ono Grinds Poke, Moffle Bar, Pop Pasta, The Good Donut Shop and more. Take some post-worthy pics of your kiddos scarfing down liquid nitrogen ice cream, garlic knot sliders, cookies ’n cream popcorn and anything else their little tummies can handle. Don’t miss a chance to pose with these delicacies at a curated selfie station! 

You’ll also get access to hourly master classes that’ll teach you how to build your Instagram following, how to take awesome food photos, how to turn your at-home food hobby into a real business and more. Learn from pros from media sites like Boozy Burbs, Devour Power Media and New Jersey Isn’t Boring.  

Tickets go for $20 per 2.5-hour session, plus taxes and fees. All day passes are available for $45 plus taxes and fees. Best part? Kids ages 10 and under are free! The festival runs from 10 am-5 pm each day.
