Chow Down at OC Foodie Fest 2011 – August 27
I don’t know how many of you attended the inaugural OC Foodie Fest last year, but what I do know is that there were thousands of you. It’s going to be the same feasting, festing, fun this year, only with a few minor modifications. I had the chance to sit down and find out from the man behind the Foodie Fest, James Foxall, just how he planned to kick it up a notch this year. Here’s the scoop!
So first thing’s first, this year’s event takes place at Angel Stadium on August 27th and it’s a full day affair. In addition to the main attraction – FOOD – there will be tons of entertainment this year. We’re talking 6 bands, 2 dedicated family fun areas with TONS of stuff to entertain the kids, a Budweiser beer garden, Angels Baseball Skill Camp, a Soco Certified Farmers Market, a car show, Boutiquing.com will be there, cooking and eating competitions, a Skyy Vodka VIP Lounge…and then 100 gourmet food trucks and local restaurants…phew!
General admission to this fabulous event is $12, early entry is available for $25 and the VIP Skyy Vodka Lounge is $75 (this one includes food, cocktails and excellent viewing of the stage). You should also know that it’s $8 to park at Angel Stadium, but if you’re local just ride your bikes or park nearby and walk over.
