WHAT IS INCLUDED IN MY TICKET
SHOULD I EAT PRIOR TO ARRIVAL?
Yes. We suggest eating a small meal before the event. Although there are lots & lots of samples, keep in mind this is a tasting event. There is also a lot of alcohol at this event so meals are always recommended.
ARE GROUP SALES AVAILABLE
Yes, this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate bachlor and bachelorette parties, Birthdays and work team events. Bring your group of 10 or more and receive a discounted rate. To book your group please email Tickets@gourmetshows.com
We cannot accommodate or guarantee that participating chefs and restaurants will prepare dishes without common allergens, including nuts, dairy, gluten, etc.
WHAT IS PHILLY TASTE! REFUND POLICY
All ticket sales are final. We do not offer refunds or exchanges. Tickets are transferable and make great gifts.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
The health and safety of our attendees and participants is our number one priority. We are in close contact with local and state officials and continue to closely monitor and adhere to laws, regulations and executive orders as they are implemented across the events industry.
Can I bring my children to the event?
Due to the high volumes of attendees entering at once, there is no way to completely beat the line. However, we do have a few suggestions. If you purchased from a third-party ticket seller, please make sure your ticket is converted to EventBrite. This is extremely important as EventBrite offers the fastest technology for ticket scanning. If your ticket has not been converted, you will be directed to a different line so that converted ticket holders are not slowed down. The casino WiFi can be very spotty, so please have your EventBrite Ticket loaded in your Apple Wallet or printed and have valid ID in hand.
Pro Tip: Once you have entered the festival, start from the back. Most of our attendees are so mesmerized by the front that they begin there. OG Taste fans know that starting from the back and working your way up to the front is the move.
How much does it cost to park?
Self-park is free at the Valley Forge Casino (yay!)
How should I get to the festival if I am not staying at the VF Casino?
Due to the abundance of alcohol, we highly recommend getting a ride or using a ride sharing platform like Uber or Lyft
Please drink responsibly.
