Taste Tickets
Admission to the Winter Park Chocolate Festival is FREE! We're expecting a great turnout!
In order to control the free sampling, attendees will be asked to purchase Taste Tickets: $10 for 10 Tastes Tickets.
 
Vendors: You can control your sampling, and handle the Taste Tickets as you wish. You may give one taste per ticket, or you may allow several tastes per ticket. Each vendor can decide, based on their own needs and the size of samples provided. At the end of the Festival, you can turn in your taste tickets at Registration to receive $1 for every 4 tickets. This way, you actually get paid for sampling.
 
The Taste Ticket model has been used successfully at many chocolate festivals and food fairs in the US and abroad.
