HINT: We’ve heard stories of people heading to the festival’s ticket booth and recruiting other people in the ticket line to go in with them on this deal — then one person collects the funds from the others, buys the deal online via smartphone, and everyone is scanned in at the gate.
Also, take a look at the discounted food tickets in the section below. Some food packages include the price of admission and others do not.
This annual festival is well-known for yummy food. With individual items like kabobs starting at just $5, you can definitely eat here on the cheap. And with the Mediterranean diet well known for its health benefits, there’s no reason not to indulge.
The food court is divided into two tents: Traditional food, and Mezze (small plates).
You’ll also find a selection of pastries/desserts, and — of course — Greek wine and other beverages.
