Cancel your plans, because the 8th annual LA Food Fest is happening tomorrow, June 10th, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and the theme is Bigger Bites, Bigger Bars and the Biggest Festival of them all! After testing out a series of smaller events last year, LAFF is consolidating all of the greatness back into one huge event featuring over 100 vendors, LA based craft beer and wine gardens, live entertainment, sweepstakes, and our favorite part — the ice cream social.
We are especially excited about the “Nuevo Gastropub,” with chefs from Mexico and LA (like Christian Page of Cassell’s, and Chris Oh of Hanjip and Seoul Sausage) doing all of their prep and cooking of a whole cow, two goats and two pigs on site! Other participating restaurants include Con’i Seafood, Ensaymada Project, Little Jewel of New Orleans, Pot, Aqui es Texcoco, The Chori Man, Cousin’s Maine Lobster, and too many more to name. Wait…what’s this? Starry Kitchen is making their world-famous and rarely seen Singaporean Chili Crab & Buttermilk Beignets from their brand new cookbook??? You had better get your ass down there!
This year’s festival runs from 2pm-7pm (VIP doors at 2pm, GA doors at 3:30pm). To avoid long lines and overcrowding, the LA Food Fest sells only 5,000 all-inclusive (pre-sale only) tickets. Children under 7 years of age free with an adult. General admission is only $ 65 and VIP tickets with early entry and exclusive access to an expansive VIP lounge are only $ 95. Get your tickets here!
