3. Can I bring my own food and drinks? 

  • Respectfully, no. Please review the following reasons.

  • Safety and Health Concerns: We have concerns about food safety and hygiene, as improperly stored or prepared food can cause foodborne illnesses. Additionally, outside drinks may be spiked with alcohol or drugs, which can create a risk of harm to other attendees.

  • Revenue and Profit: As Organizers, we rely on food and drink sales to generate revenue, as vendors pay for the opportunity to sell their products at the event. If attendees are allowed to bring their own food and drink, this can impact the organizers' ability to make a profit and cover the costs of hosting the event.

  • Environmental Concerns: We are focused on reducing waste and minimizing their environmental impact. Allowing attendees to bring their own food and drink can result in a large amount of waste and packaging, which can be difficult to manage and dispose of properly.

  • Responsibility & Obligations: We have a responsibility and obligation to our food and drink vendors, which may prohibit attendees from bringing their own food and drink. They pay a hefty amount of fees to participate in this event and allowing outside food and beverage into the event would lessen their opportunity to sell. We appreciate all of our food and beverages vendors as their support helps pay for this free community event year after year.
