  • Average wait times at any food festival in North America range from 25-45 minutes.
  • Our VIF Express Pass average waits are 10-15 minutes for ordering your food. Now that's fast.
  • We limit the total number of VIF passes that are sold all weekend to ensure that you never wait in another line, plain and simple. 
  • Wait times are "in-line" only. They are not based on food preparation time OR complexity of dish after ordering at a truck. Wait times are subject to change and vary due to peak time of festival.

I WANT TO EAT FROM AS MANY FOOD VENDORS! 

Do food trucks have small bite options? Yes, we want you to eat your way through the entire festival over two days. So every for vendor is required to have a $5 sampler plate menu item on their 2014 menu. We will have the menu on our website on August 2nd to guide your travel, plus a handy print festival guide.
