Want to know what to expect?

We’re cooking up some wonderful treats of all types for our gluten-free community!

First off, please don’t wait to purchase tickets!

The lines are getting longer every day, and will-call, print-at-home, as well as mobile tickets are all available to speed up the process!

We also have a number of different kinds of tickets available.


Here is a break down:

Group pricing = special price for 6 or more adults or kids (Saturday Sampler-all access)

General admission = speakers+non-food vendors+ farm activities (This is the best option for more sensitive individuals with multi-allergies).

Saturday sampler = general admission+food sampling (all-access)

Sampler and speakers only = just that. (However if you change you mind on site, you’ll be required to pay the farmer directly for access to the farm activities.)

NC FACES prices and ticket options are for the NC FACES volunteer support group members or multiple (more than 3) allergen persons.

Children under 2 get in free. Children 2-12 are at a reduced price.

VetTix has been available for families of veterans to enjoy the festivities free!

Admissions will be located at the Non-Food Vendor and Speaker Tent.

Everyone comes to General Admissions first.

This is also where Will-Call, Print-At-Home, and Mobile tickets will be checked in.

Cameo Edwards of Crave San Francisco - Gluten Free Bakery

Cameo Edwards of Crave San Francisco – Gluten Free Bakery

In 2002, Cameo Edwards was living in San Francisco when she discovered she was gluten sensitive after two years of stomach pain and misleading diagnoses. Determined to eat the foods she loved, she began baking and selling her gluten-free, dairy-free desserts in 2003. Crave seemed like the perfect name for this bakery since her frustrations came from food Cravings in which she could no longer safely indulge. Cameo ran Crave Bakery for 10 years, making a line of high-end products for grocery stores throughout the Western US. In 2009, she also began making gluten-free, allergy-free wedding and party cakes for the Bay Area. The Crave Gluten-Free Cookbook, with over 60 gluten and dairy free recipes, was published in May 2013.
