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.

Food vendor samplers will be open 2:30-5:00 pm.
Those wanting to follow the guided tour can note the demo times enclosed on the program for food presenters.

We will also be hosting guest speakers, demo presenters with samples on our program and vendors who are knowledgeable about gluten-free foods, health, fitness, and beauty.
I am so proud and happy to announce that NC FACES, a volunteer-only support group for parents and families of food allergic children will benefit from a portion of the proceeds. Here is more about them:
We are an all volunteer support group sharing information, support, and some fun. We provide a social and emotional support network for Food Allergic Families in all stages of learning about the process of living with food allergies. We will remain constant in our dedication to teach our children how to live fully productive, interactive, exciting, and safe lives.
Save the date on your calendar, so when tickets become available, you’ll be ready to be a part of this ground breaking fun!
Let us know if you’d like to participate! We have several levels of participation available.
We have two major goals:
We want to raise awareness about food allergies, especially gluten and wheat sensitivity, providing resources to educate and inform the public.
We also want to provide a live-action directory of Triangle businesses that are seriously knowledgeable about gluten-free living.
It is so important to maintain an active, safe, and balanced life as a gluten or allergy affected individual! We can do it!
