2014 Ticket FAQs

What Are My Purchase Options?

Tickets to The Austin FOOD & WINE Festival are sold as TASTE & SAVOR Passes. Both Passes can be bundled into a Travel Package.

The Feast Under The Stars dinner on Thursday night can be purchased individually. Tickets to Feast Under The Stars are not included with TASTE or SAVOR Passes. Friday's Taste of Texas & Saturday's Rock Your Taco events at Republic Square Park are included with a SAVOR Pass purchase. If you purchase a TASTE Pass, you will have the opportunity to add either of these 2 night time events to your purchase for an additional fee.

Both TASTE and SAVOR Passes allow access to all Demos & Panels, as well as entry into The Grand Tasting presented by H-E-B on Saturday & Sunday. SAVOR Passholders will have access to The H-E-B Grand Tasting Pavilion early on both days.

What is the Age Limit?

The Festival is 21+ only. A valid ID is needed to enter all festival events. If we cannot verify your age, you will not be allowed into the Festival.
