Great American Food & Music Fest

Giveaway + Discount Tickets

Food Events


Saturday June 13th marks the first (and I hope not the last!) Great American Food and Music Fest at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View from noon until 10 pm. Get a group of four friends together and tickets are only $21.50 each, otherwise festival tickets start at $35 and go up depending upon what extras you might want such as wine tasting or backstage "meet and greet party" with celebrity chefs. All tickets include the first plate of food you try from one vendor. But undoubtedly you will want to try a whole lot more than that.

This extravaganza is a bit like a foodie pilgrimage around the country without leaving home. Try a pastrami sandwich from Katz's Deli or Graeter's ice cream from Philly, Southside Market BBQ brisket and sausage from Texas or even the original Anchor Bar Chicken Wings from Buffalo otherwise known as, "Buffalo wings."

If you want to indulge in local specialties and even see them being made, there will be plenty of those too. Incanto's Chris Cosentino will be making hot dogs, June Taylor will be creating strawberry jam, Chuck Siegel of Charles Chocolate will be forming chocolate truffles and Nate Appleman of A16 will be making some new creation that has yet to be revealed. Competition will be in the air as chefs from Burgermeister, Pearl’s, MO’s, and the Burger Joint compete for the title of San Francisco's Best Burger.

This is going to be a great event! And I have 2 tickets to give away to lucky readers. Leave a comment with your favorite regional American specialty and I will pick two readers at random. Tickets are available online now. Use the ticket code "foodfest" for $5 off ticket prices.

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED! THANKS FOR ALL YOUR ENTRIES
