Nowhere to sit, ridiculously long lines for overpriced and below average food- that was my first and last time going to Chillounge. I liked the ambience, but the lack of seating killed it for me.

They only had 4 food trucks, and we ended up waiting in line for an hour for food. This was the most ghetto event. I can't believe we actually paid money for it. We left after we ate our crappy meal to go to the bar across the street for actual food and drinks. They were packed with all the other people who left this horrific event.

Could have had more local food trucks & provided seating available for the space of Curtis Hixon Park. Regardless I was pleased as a first-time attendee. Definitely keep the Groupon discount option available as it sold out due to the fact it makes for a very good price for a first-timer, as well as returning customers. Overall, I think it's an awesome (business) idea & if it was able to be offered twice a year at successful locations, it could possibly expand even more & become more "recognized" than it already is

The actual event was great! But when bought the Groupon I was told it included tastings. But 1 week before event, they took that part off the ticket. I was very disappointed!

Chillounge was very lame this year and we will not be back. Every year we've gone and there was always great bands, entertainment, lots of acrobats going on and decent food but not this year. The sound system was horrible so you couldn't really hear the band very well or DJ. The food trucks pretty much sold out and closed within the first two hours and there was just nothing exciting going on. People were all coming and leaving which was a pretty bad sign. We hung in for a little hoping it would get better but no such luck. Lots of unhappy campers. Thank Goodness I purchased our tickets on Groupon this year or I would have really been upset, not so much for our friends who purchased VIP...they were beyond upset. What a shame it use to be a great event. Oh yeah and the fireworks were just so so. Nothing special.Two thumbs down. 👎🏻👎🏻

It was new to my girlfriend and I. It was a birthday gift for her. I thought good was included. Little did I know it cost 100.00 extra for VIP. We were there 45 minutes before gates open only to find out Groupon tickets had to be redeemed in at two tables. We were some what about three in one of those only to find out only one table was for Groupon and of course we were at wrong take which made us about 15 I'm the correct line. Tables should have been labeled. Once in we were able to get chairs and not use the ones we took. 2 food trucks for 2-3 hundred people , Einstein bagels which sold roast beef sandwiches and donut truck. Prices were good and good great but lines were so long and no had enough employees. We were lucky we eat once we were settled in. All in all we had a very good time. Did not stay for fireworks.
