Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? Are kids allowed in the event? Does my child need their own ticket?

There is no age requirement to enter the event however, this is an adult-centric event and every child must be accompanied by an adult. Kids ages 10 an under do not need an individual ticket to enter, but they will not be provided with their own samples without one. Adults should not plan on buying one ticket and taking two samples at each station if bringing a child. If you are planning on your child participating in the sampling portion of the event, we require them to have their own ticket.  

What are my parking options for the event?

There is plentiful free parking near the venue on the street and in garages. 

Can I bring Tupperware into the event to take some treats home?

No. All Tupperware will be confiscated if seen. We ask that you respect this rule as it helps all guests have a good time and have the ability to try all the treats before vendors run out just like you! 

Does my ticket come with unlimited samples?

No. Your ticket provides samples from over a dozen bakeries. Additional items from vendors will be available for purchase if you'd like to take some treats home! 

What's the refund policy?

Refund given 7 days before event date.
