I had heard last year was really good. Disappointed that my friend told me there wasn’t as much stuff there this year. I thought she had bragged it up to be awesome and I was expecting more. After we compared notes and that’s when she told me it wasn’t as good as last year. The Chanticleer pizza guy made me feel bad when I said you should get this at Walmart and other stores. He got real defensive about being in Walmart’s but that’s close to my house.

Much smaller than previous years. Some of the vendors were a little to aggressive. Great samples. Loved the food trucks

I agree, there seemed to be less vendors participating and more vendors who had nothing to do with Gluten-Free or food allergies. I also would comment on the huge amount of space available that wasn't being used. The aisles were very crowded and they needed more tables in the back. I missed the presence of Aleia's, Bakery on Main, and Canyon Bakehouse. I would have loved to purchase hard to get items from these vendors. Wish that had chosen to participate.

Awesome! Wish there would have been more samples to take home. But loved that the quality had improved compared to the last time we went. And I was in love with the food trucks. Had my first funnel cake and first fried mini donuts.

Smaller this year and felt squished together. Disappointed free indeed food truck only had donuts available instead of their full selection. Vendors seemed to have less samples to try things as well. Didn’t wait for a corn dog as it would have taken too long. Probably won’t go next year.

There was plenty of space in the very large room. All the vendors were squished together in a small part of it so people could barely walk to see the vendors. Very limited lunch food that was for sale to eat that day. The gluten-free corn dog was delicious however the line was 60 people long Vendot could not keep up with the giving out samples therefore I did not get to sample some things I really wanted to try I would have liked to learn more with speakers talking about gluten-free options

It seemed smaller this year. Also would like all venders to be related to gluten free.

The expo was very intriguing & a great learning experience. I heard there used to be more vendors but the size was just right.

The information gained from vendors is great! Really like the free samples and the ability to buy product right there from some of the vendors. The event did seem smaller this year, not as many vendors.

I thought this was a great event, had some variety and options, which we all appreciate. Plus great to see new products you're not familiar with and support our local people too! Aisles could've been spread out to allow for better navigating to get to vendors, was difficult to do this.
