We encourage attendees to park at the Hilton parking garage located at 3rd and Ft. Riley Boulevard. There is ample space available and the location is convenient for check in at the Flint Hills Discovery Center.

Additional parking information can be found here.

All attendees must check in at the Flint Hills Discovery Center to get their event tickets. Check-in will open at 4:30 p.m. and close at 7:00 p.m. Tickets must be purchased online and there is no ticket will-call at the event check in.
After checking in, attendees are given a brochure that lists the offerings of the evening and doubles as your ticket for the night. As you stop at each restaurant, simply present your brochure and receive the special dish that the restaurant has prepared specifically for the event!
