Al Fuego is Hot Luck’s main event: a live-action, flame-fueled celebration of open-air cooking styles. We coax the chefs to kick it casual and set them up with the best meats, the coldest beer, and Aaron Franklin might even build them a specialty cooker. Chefs including Crystal Wahpepah, Alon Shaya, Reem Assil, Jordan Rubin, Fermín Núñez, Chuy Villarreal, Chava Orozco, Kevin Fink, Michael Fojtasek, Amanda Turner, Ariana Quant, Kareem El-Ghayesh and more, can choose their own fiery adventure at Al Fuego. It’s the entire reason Hot Luck exists: to celebrate the fare rarely seen at large events: the obsessively prepared, passionately executed, inspiring food that chefs love to eat.

This event is from 7:00 PM–10:00 PM and is included in the Whole Enchilada Ticket Package who can get in early at 6:30. Individual tickets are also available.

Food and beverages (adult beverages for 21+) are included with a ticket.
