I have some dietary restrictions; will there be anything for me to eat onsite?
There will be a good number of menu items sensitive to those who are vegetarian, gluten free, vegan, dairy free, and nut free. Information regarding these specifics will be available in advance of the event.
What are these seated meals that are mentioned on the site? That doesn't sound very festival-y to me!
Indeed. It's not the kind of thing you'll see too often. Throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday WYSIWYG will present a very limited number of exquisite seated meals that will each feature an outstanding Vermont chef. Each of these meals will be served with beer and/or wine pairings and will consist of 3 courses. Meals will be al fresco, and served at long, farm style tables under a tent.
How do I get my hands on a seat at one of these meals?
Our full line up for the seated meals will be announced shortly. At that point you will be able to go on WYSIWYGFestival.com and purchase seats for the meal or meals that you would most like to attend (the tragedy here is that we only have one stomach)! Your ticket purchase admits 1 and reserves you a spot at the meal. Seats are not pre-assigned so if you are arriving with a larger group or are super choosy about where you sit, come early to nab your pick. Chefs, pairings and times will be announced soon--so please sign up for our mailing list so as not to miss any important info.
