How much are you actually feeding me? Is there a menu I can look at?
The participating restaurants will provide unlimited sampling.  We plan long and hard to ensure none of the restaurants run out of food.  We guarantee you will not leave hungry.

I have a special diet or food allergies; is this event for me?
We try our best to accommodate all. We will denote on signage and in the printed guide which menu items are gluten free, vegetarian, or contains nuts.


What can/can't I bring to the event?

Both events are indoors. However, if you arrive early, you may be asked to wait in line outside before doors open so please dress according to the weather in comfortable attire.

There will be a coat check at Friday night’s event but not on Saturday. We do not have storage for any large bags or luggage.

Will there be swag?
Yes! You can buy ATK cookbooks (get them signed by our cast and test cooks!), festival t-shirts, sweatshirts, and hats.


Will there be accessible bathrooms and where are they?
There are accessible indoor bathrooms. The locations will be printed on the event map you will receive at registration. If you have trouble locating the bathrooms, please contact any member of the ATK team wearing a “Staff” shirt and they will be happy to point you in the right direction.


Can I bring my kids?
Unfortunately, children are not allowed as both events are 21+.
