A day featuring some of Santa Barbara’s very best local eateries and the best drinks in town… AND it’s all for a good cause! I’ll be in attendance… will you?

Fork Fest is Santa Barbara’s only hip park party, foodie fork off, and adult bevy festival all in one! The second Fork Fest will be held September 27th, 2014 at Chase Palm Park. We are waiting to surprise you with the participants, so we’re keeping that a secret for now. What we can tell you is that this event will be bigger, better & you will definitely be getting FORKED!

About the event

Fork Fest will bring some of the best local eateries together to compete in a friendly fork-off competition to win your vote. Vendors will prepare one delectable forkfull of culinary excellence that they think will impress guests and win them the crown! The cuisine genre is entirely open-ended to create a competitive nature among vendors and to inspire originality and quality. The event will feature a main wine and beer bar plus a specialty sangria, champagne, and craft beer bar to make sure that you don’t leave hungry, nor thirsty!

Your job is super easy:

  • Just show up, put on your Fork Fest crown, grab a fork and get to tasting.
  • You’re free to roam at your leisure and enjoyment while you taste each fork and get to know the vendors.
  • We’ll have a few breweries, wineries and other spirits there pouring adult beverages for you to enjoy as you jam out music curated by We the Beat and munch your delicious fork fulls.
  • Once you’ve made your rounds, feel free to stop by the voting booth to give a nod to your favorite. (If you don’t want to vote… don’t sweat it, it’s really only about you having a good time.)

Tickets are all inclusive at only $45 or $55 if you’re the early, I want to be in there first, and steal all the glory type. Each admission ticket includes entry, a forkfull from each vendor, unlimited adult beverages, and, of course, one hell of a good time! Plus, you get a flashy Fork Fest crown and a snazzy yellow fork to keep!

P.S.,  Fork Fest isn’t just for fun… We’ll help raise funds for the New Noise Music Foundation. Established in 2009, the 501 (c)3 non profit, New Noise Music Foundation creates a participatory creative culture through producing the annual New Noise Santa Barbara Music Conference & Festival each Fall, consistent concerts, workshops, lectures, and volunteer/mentoring programs for all ages, especially young people.
