Carnival Corner, Chinatown, and The Pig & Poke
In addition to the Causeway Tasting Booths, the Food and Wine Classic offers three special food areas this year, Carnival Corner, Chinatown, and returning for 2019, The Pig & Poke.
In Carnival Corner, guests can indulge in dressed up fair food! We’ve delighted in Hand Dipped Corn Dogs, Kettle Corn, and Fried Oreos in years past.
Chinatown joined the line up in 2016 and returns again this year, and the food is incredible.
I’ll be lining up for seconds of their Crispy Duck and Shanghai Dumplings this fall!
The Pig & Poke is a new Hawaiian Luau-themed area that debuted in 2018, where guests can indulge in new menu items including Traditional Earth Baked Kalua Pork, “Tuna Poke,” and Shave Ice.
The Beer Garden
The Beer Garden, first introduced in 2014, makes its way back again this year. Look for lots and LOTS of craft beer and cider, both local and national.
In addition, the area offers guests tasty dishes, like Jager Schnitzel and returning this year, a Berliner Doner Kabab featuring Split Roasted Strauss Farm Veal, Garlic & Parsley Yogurt Sauce, Red Cabbage and Onions, Buttered Warm Flatbread.
This year, the Beer Garden upgrade is included in the price of the Causeway ticket!
