Typically there are two ways to enjoy the offerings at the Food & Wine Classic: Causeway Tickets and A La Carte Tickets. For 2021, the Classic will not offer A La Carte Tickets.

Causeway Ticket

The Causeway ticket costs $165 per person (includes a service fee and taxes) and includes unlimited samples from the Causeway offerings and the Beer Garden.

A la Carte Tickets — Not available for 2021

If you’ve got a smaller appetite (or if your kiddos are coming along), the A la Carte Tickets might make more sense for you. Twenty-five tickets cost $75, and you will use these tickets to try items as you wish. Items cost between 2-6 tickets each, so you’ll need to plan carefully to get a taste of everything that appeals to you.
