The 4th annual EastSide Food Festival is a gathering of the best of the best and rising stars from LA’s gastronomic scene. The festival features over 30 food and beverage vendors made up of locally owned and operated businesses including restaurants, celebrity chefs, locally owned brands, and more. With a focus on the evolving and diverse scenes of LA’s EastSide neighborhoods, the festival highlights all aspects of culture in our communities. As in years previous, this year will include discussion panels and food demos with appearances by musicians, artists, chefs, and more – all who share one universal thing – the love of food, and a passion for talking about it!

EastSide Food Fest





Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

21+, no children allowed.

What kind of food should I expect to have at EastSide Food Festival?

The EastSide Food Festival is sample sized based. We are asking each vendor to have 1 or 2 items of their choosing in sample size portions.

Do I have to pay for the food once I am inside?

No! Your ticket covers all you can eat!

When do ticket sales end?

Saturday, October 21, 11:59pm

Can I get tickets at the door?

Yes, but entry depends on capacity and availabilty after advance ticket sales. If you do not have an advance ticket, we suggest coming after 5pm to try to purchase tickets at the door so that the advance purchase lines will have died down.

Is it rain or shine?


What is the price of a ticket for the event and what does it get?

We have General Admission, VIP and Non-Drinker tickets available. Each ticket is priced differently depending on when exactly you buy it.

What does the VIP ticket get you?

Our VIP offerings have greatly expanded this year! There will be 1 full hour on early entry for VIP guests only from 3-4pm during which time there will be special VIP-exclusive tastings and events, and the expanded VIP lounge lasts all day with extra places to relax. Not to mention that the VIP ticket comes with 5 drink tickets per person, so this pretty much pays for the price difference already. The VIP experience will truly shine!

Is there a charity benefactor?

Yes! Your attendance helps us to achieve a fiscal contribution to PATH organization, who are based here on the east side of LA and do amazing things helping homeless people find housing all over Southern California.

What's the refund policy?

No refunds, sorry.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes, all tickets will be scanned upon entry, and the names are not required to match.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We highly recommend taking rideshare such as Lyft or public transportation to Mack Sennett Studios. The venue is very central, just off of Sunset Blvd in Silverlake. If you do choose to drive, there will be a complimentary first come, first serve parking lot located across the street from the venue, as well as free street parking in the neighborhood.
