Ticket holders will enjoy tastings from more than 30 exclusive restaurants and live music performed by Changing Lanes. 

No. 2 —The VIP  Area

VIP ticket holders have access to an additional 15 restaurants and bars inside the beautiful VIP building next to the fountain.VIP guests will also enjoy a private terrace and lounge area overlooking the festival, exclusive cocktails and private bathrooms.


No. 3 —The Tasting Tour

Guests can stroll or use our convenient hop-on hop-off bus to take them on the downtown Tasting Tour. The bus starts at the Gateway and passes the participating restaurants every 15 minutes. Some of the restaurants include: Ruth’s Chris, Market Street Grill and Squatters.
