Visitor feedback aligns with our Mission, to be a fun, indulgent & tasty day out for all foodies that fills your life with GOOD friends, GOOD times and GOOD food.  They want to attend a destination event where to try, buy, eat, drink and relax and be entertained.  Vendor positioning and interaction is paramount as visitors explore the Fair meaning vendors sites need to be attractive and engaging.

Visitors were clear they want to spread their budget to try a variety of different tastes and to shop for packaged items to take home or to give away as gifts.  They want more vendors interacting with samples, smaller plates of ready to eat foods, lower top-level pricing and more food options including vegetarian, vegan, GF, DF, Keto and sugar free.  The Fair curates the Site Map with the aim of achieving 60% packaged sites that includes a liquor zone and 40% ready to eat delicious food offerings.
