FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I went last year – will this year be the same?
Thank you! We hope you had as much fun as we did. This year will be even bigger and better than last year. For a look at what last year was like, see our video recap here. In 2018, Friday night’s kick off event will be a 25th Birthday Bash for Cook’s Illustrated magazine. Saturday’s ATK Boston EATS tasting event will feature more tents, sponsors, restaurants, and demonstrations. And we’ve added a family event on Sunday!
I’m visiting from out of state – any tips for me?
Welcome to Boston! We have partnered with local Marriott hotels to offer you exclusive ATK EATS discounted rates. Please check out the directions and accommodations page for further details on how to book your room.
How much are you actually feeding me? Is there a menu I can look at?
The participating restaurants will provide unlimited sampling. We plan long and hard to ensure none of the restaurants run out of food. We guarantee you will not leave hungry.
Will there be swag?
