I'll probably be going. I skipped it last year so hopefully they have some good exhibits :D

Volunteered here last year to get out of school.
:P

It's not worth going. The portion size is small, and the food are expensive for what you get.

Mugen EvOlutioN 05-22-2009 09:03 AM

how does this work?

$12 dollar for ticket just to in?

than inside foods are additional?

hamsup 05-22-2009 09:25 AM

Yup.. 12 dollars is for admission.. then you have to buy tickets for the beer garden and food stands..

I went a few times in the past.. it keeps getting worse imo..

- less samples
- more expensive vendor food
- same shops show up each year

It is very similar to the nibble and bites in richmond.. or taste of vancouver events.. but this one is of a larger scale ..

Good memory! I actually missed out on a lot of the free stuff reading this...

I didn't get caesar salad, beef gravy, soups, and the Fuze. ..don't even know where those are lol.

Did any of you sit down at any of the stages? I did...mmmm beer!

This event was not worth the $$$.

I was expecting something similar to Ottawa's Wine and Food show, and was very disappointed. When I moved here I searched for a similar event, its one of the things I missed about Ottawa, so I had this in my calendar for months.

The quality of the vendors food was subpar, basically cheap ethnic fast food I could get anywhere for about the same price. At the Ottawa show the vendors have seats at their booths and serve amazing food, albeit for a higher price. This event would be better with more local restaurants participating and serving small tastes of their menus.

I cannot believe there was an entire row of non-food vendors. Its a food show, not a travel show!

The only fun part was the alcohol section, yet after 4 laps and trying every booze vendor we left. We had a lot of tickets, figured we'd get drunk since the event was a bust. This event would be better if the alcohol section was 2-3 times bigger and featured more BC wineries.

I did manage to eat 9 galub jamons! mmmmm where can I get these in Vancouver (I live in Kits) without having to sit and eat at a restaurant?
