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

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 ..

It's not that bad as you guys make it sound. Just go get the free samples, make 3 rounds of the whole floor and you should be full.

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?
