On Sunday, September 23, from 11am-4pm, the Phantom Gourmet will host their annual fall Food Festival. Tickets cost $40 which include admission to the street and sampling food from fifty different vendors. Drinks are not included. You can also get into parties inside several clubs. The festival is 21+ (no minors, infants or pets) and will be held rain or shine. The first 800 Phans to enter the event wearing Phantom’s favorite color (purple) will receive a $5 Phantom Gourmet Gift Card.
Tickets are limited and not sold at the event. You can order them online or buy them at certain restaurants. Special VIP tickets are available, at $100, which include an early 10:30am entry and entry into Ernie Boch Jr.'s party at Embassy.
You can see a list of the participating vendors online. Much of the food is comfort food. From Beard Papa's Cream Puffs to Harrows' Chicken Pies, from Kane's Donuts Coffee Roll to Trani Ice Cream Cupcakes.
I have been to this Food Festival before and very much enjoyed myself. There is plenty of delicious food to eat and you certainly won't leave hungry. I think the price is reasonable for everything you can eat. You definitely should try to get there early though as it will get very busy later and then the crowds can be an issue. I will be going to the Festival again this year and look forward to all of different foods.
