Cultivate is a FREE festival for anyone to enjoy. There are no tickets, just show up at the park. All the chef demos, bands and activities are free to attend, as well. Bring your kids, bring your grandparents, even bring your dog. But please no iguanas or anything like that. The only things you'll need to pay for are the delicious foods and drinks that are available for your enjoyment.

How much do food and drinks cost?

All of the Chipotle food is $5 - 7 per serving. Beer and wine in the Tasting Hall start at $6 per glass or $2 for a beer taster .All non-alcoholic drinks are $2. The food from the vendors in the Artisans' Hall is individually priced.

Can I bring any of my own food or drinks?

You may bring a water bottle (factory sealed or reusableplastic/aluminum). Food and other beverages will not be permitted and are available for purchase at the festival. Why would you want to bring your own anyway when there are so many delicious choices?
