How do parents decide where to eat out? Trick question, they don’t–kids do!
At the SGF Kids Food Festival presented by Aaron Sachs & Associates, local restaurants will provide sample-size servings of their best kids food fare with options for even the pickiest of eaters. When you’re ready to cool off, head inside to the Discovery Center and explore over 300 hands-on exhibits across 6 combined floors all of which is included with your ticket!
What’s included with my ticket?
Both the child and adult tickets include same-day admission to the Discovery Center and an all-inclusive pass to the SGF Kids Food Festival. You will not need to purchase any additional tickets for drinks or food at the festival.
What kind of food will be at the festival?
This festival is perfect for kids (or kids at heart)! Expect to find kid-friendly food like hotdogs, pizza, frozen yogurt, and more. All food samples are kid-centric, and there are no adult beverages at this event.
What is the age range for a child ticket?
