Q:

Wondering if I am able to go in and out, since I can only go there around 11-12, then leave to drop of kids for other events and would like to go back in the afternoon without paying admission twice. Will they stamp our hands or just take ticket stubs? Thanks.

A:

Handstamps are used to let you in and out. Children twelve and under get free admission, and we'd be happy to handstamp them twice!

Q:

Does this includea admission to any seminars? I see from the site that regular Saturday admission includes exhibitors, Chefs at Play, and Kid’s Corner, and that seminars are available separately in Silver and Gold Festival Workshop Packages. Thanks!

A:

Groupon offer includes all chef demos and exhibits but does not include either our 9am to 5pm "Gold Workshop Package" or 11am to 5pm "Silver Workshop Package." However, your Groupon has a value of $20 per person that can be applied onsite to purchase a workshop upgrade at the door. Groupon value cannot be applied to our Buy Online and Save discounts for those packages as shown on our website. Please note that we expect the Urban Ag Bus Tour to sell out in advance, so if you want it, buy that one online now!

Q:

Since the groupon does not include workshops, can you use the groupon and pay extra to sign up for workshops? If so, how? The link to the full Saturday schedule is a little misleading because it shows all of the non-included workshops. Perhaps this link would be more appropriate? http://goodfoodfestivals.com/chicago/festival/

Q:

Is there a way to upgrade online to include admission to the workshops or will those tickets have to be purchased at the door?
