Great music, a lot of BBQ trucks, would of liked to see more of a variety of food trucks with sample size menus from the vendors instead of full plate menus. I feel like I paid for a ticket (actually 2 tix) that most people got in for free. They only had caution tape around the event that was only 2 feet high and people would just hike over for free. Also, when my friend and I arrived, there was nobody taking our tickets! So what did I pay 10 bucks for?

The music was terrible. There was only one choice for a beer vendor and you were confined if you were drinking - you couldn't view the rest of the event. It was very organized for the tickets or where the parking was or anything to do with VIP tickets.

Great entertainment, could have used more tables & chairs in VIP area.

Very limited options, only 1 AZ brewery and one AZ wine, no distilleries and only a small smattering of some food trucks, most were frozen yogurt. Not a festival worth your time or money if into food or beverages.

It was very unorganized and the description on Groupon of what you get is what we got. People there didn't know a whole lot about what was going on.

totally unorganized. We had VIP tickets but no one seemed to know what to do. We sat at tables in a corralled area but trying to get food was very difficult. the volunteers didn't know what was going on either. I did find the "man in charge" and he said he had vendors cancel at the last minute and he was trying to get other vendors to help out, but couldn't respond to the lack of organization.. It was so poorly executed he should not be in charge ever again!!

Expected each vendor to offer small plate samples to purchase. Most only offered full size meals which became expensive.

It wasn't what I expected. There was barely any seating for food (the only area with tons of seating was VIP). There were hardly any vendors and just one area for entertainment. After getting food there just wasn't anywhere to mingle or look around or even sit. It should be a free event. You shouldn't pay to get in

Very disappointed! Disorganized! Had no idea what VIP customers entitled to! One purveyor did not have food ready for sales even at 12:30 pm. I went back there two times. NOT READY?! Are you serious?!
