WICKED GLUTEN FREE EXPO TIPS

  • Safety We take your health and safety very seriously, and are highly selective when it comes to exhibitors. All food booths will be clearly marked as one of the following:
    • Dedicated GF and certified gluten free
    • Dedicated GF but not certified gluten free
    • Gluten-free products made in a shared facility, but thoroughly vetted for proper cross-contamination protocols. These are small businesses that use their own equipment, clean and sanitize thoroughly, and employ rigorous cross-contamination protocols.  Items from these kitchens may still be required to include a disclaimer on their labels. We encourage you to chat with them and decide for yourself if you’d like to sample and/or buy.
  • Gluten-containing foods are not permitted inside the venue on the day of the expo. Please no gluten-containing children’s snacks.
  • Look for allergen table tents at every booth, noting which allergens are present in any of their items.
  • READ LABELS!  Though many of our exhibitors are allergen free, these events are not allergen free. Labels are required for all items. For your safety, do not purchase or eat anything that may have slipped through unlabeled.
  • Tickets will be available online and at the door, but are cheaper online.
  • To manage crowds, tickets are sold for specific admission hours. You may enter at your purchased admission time or later, and stay for as long as you like. Pre-purchased ticket holders are prioritized for entry. If an admission hour is sold out, there may be a wait to enter for folks buying tickets at the door. Historically, there has not been a wait to enter for folks purchasing at the door. Note that if you plan to purchase tickets at the door for the 10am hour, you will receive a tote bag, but it will not contain pre-loaded “Early Bird” samples. 
  • Free Passes If you win free passes, they’re valid for 11am or later only.
  • Don’t get scammed! Do not purchase tickets from anyone selling them on social media or otherwise. They’re all scammers selling invalid tickets.
  • Tote Bags All attendees receive a Wicked Gluten free tote bag, but only Early Bird ticket holders receive a tote bag containing exclusive GF samples. Samples may vary.
  • Wristbands Be sure to grab a wristband at the door so that you can visit our outdoor food vendors or run purchases to the car.
  • Speaking of purchases, there will be lots of perishable & non-perishable food for sale – throw a cooler in the car!
  • Drinks will be available for purchase, but you are permitted to bring drinks into the venue.
  • Strollers/wagons etc are permitted.

About us and our expos
  • We’re consumer expo pros. We’ve been doing gluten-free expos nonstop since 2016, and they’ve been growing in size and attendance ever since. We now draw 100+ exhibitors and 4,000-5,000 attendees per expo . (We even brought Rhode Island its first GF expo ever with our 2018 GF Holiday Fest)
  • We’re expanding! We’re excited to be expanding into NY and PA, with more cities to come.
  • Unique and interesting exhibitors are our specialty. We welcome national brands at our events, but we love artisans and startups, and ensure that our expos are accessible to all.
  • Expertly curated and 95% food You won’t see dog food, candles, essential oils, vitamins, cheese, direct sell reps, chiropractors, remodelers, gutters, massage and other unrelated booths at our expos.
  • Community support We’re all about community, so we offer free booths to as many celiac disease/gluten-free/food allergy nonprofits and services as possible.
  • Stay for lunch! We always have GF prepared food trucks, caterers, and hot food options available.
  • Comfortable seating to take a load off, eat lunch, or just chat and connect with other folks like you.
  • We’re kid friendly! Our kids space is perfect for the littles (and bigs!) to let off some steam and for parents to take a breather. Face painting, too!
  • FREE PARKING & strollers welcome!
