Tickets are $85 each in advance online (fees may apply) until 5 p.m. on Sept. 2 or $100 each at the door. People who choose not to drink alcoholic beverages at the event may purchase Designated Driver Tickets for $60 each in advance or $75 at the door.

Your ticket entitles you to sample unlimited food, wine, beer and spirits. You are welcome to attend the demonstration stages. Classes are an extra charge.
Are discounts available?
A discounted price, as mentioned above, is offered if you buy tickets in advance. No other coupons are offered that I know of.
What else should I know?
Phoenix Cooks affords participants the opportunity to see culinary demonstrations on several stages and sample Chef creations and spirits as well as shop in the marketplace.
No strollers are permitted, so if you are bringing any children under the age of six you must carry them at all times. My recommendation is to leave them with a babysitter.
Once again Phoenix Cooks will offer classes on several topics during Phoenix Cooks. Each class lasts about 30 minutes and a maximum of 25 attendees are permitted in each class. You may register for the classes in advance. The charge is $25 (plus fees) per class in advance, and you must be registered for Phoenix Cooks in order to participate.
