What does the ticket price cover?

Your ticket is an all-access pass to all dishes and drink served at the event. You will have a chance to purchase some cool, limited edition swag inside the event as well, but everything for your stomach is covered by your ticket price.

May I bring my toddler? She’s so well behaved!

All Chefs for Farmers events are 21 and up only. We check every guest photo ID before allowing entry. If you bring a small child, we’ll kindly point you in the direction of the nearest playground.

May I bring my dog? He’s so well behaved!

We love dogs!  But for your safety and ours, we cannot have Fido running underfoot among the crowds and food stations.

I’m 20 and I love great food. May I buy a ticket?

Next year! All Chefs for Farmers events are 21 and up only. We check every guest photo ID before allowing entry. And there will be bouncers. Big, food-loving bouncers who don’t want to share with under-21s.

What do I bring?

Four things: (1) your Prekindle ticket, preferably printed, or on your mobile device, (2) your photo ID, (3) a healthy appetite, and (4) your food-loving friends. Notice this year we’re not asking you to bring a wine glass to donate; you are welcome to bring one, as long as you pack it out with you again.

May I bring a picnic blanket or chairs to the Main Event?

There will be seating areas throughout Lee Park if you want to rest between sampling dozens of dishes and sipping dozens of beverages. There will be very limited space for picnic blankets and the like, and Chefs for Farmers is not responsible for any lost, broken, or stolen items! Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but it can get crowded. We’re not saying don’t, but not saying do, either.

What do I wear?

Whatever you like! The down-home, no-fuss culinary event of the year mingles picnic chic, modern, retro, and everything in between.

Where do I park?

At the Crème de la Femme Dinner, complimentary valet is provided at Arlington Hall at Lee Park.

At the Street Food Night Market, you may park along Hi Line Drive or Slocum Street. You can also the parking lots at 1519 Hi Line Drive, 1525 Hi Line Drive, or 1616 Hi Line Drive. We also strongly encourage Uber, Lyft, or taxis.

At The Main Event, street parking is very limited. The parking garage at Lee Park Center, 3141 Hood Street, Dallas TX 75219 is $10/vehicle for Chefs for Farmers. We also strongly encourage carpooling and/or using Uber, Lyft, or taxis.

What if it rains?

All Chefs for Farmers events forge ahead, rain or shine! We reserve the right to change venues, but a little ol’ Texas shower isn’t going to stop us. Wear your cutest rain boots and come on out!
