And it’s all free samples!

You’ll even have the opportunity to drink beer for a good cause at the no host bar (21+ with a wrist band); proceeds from the bar will benefit the Caridad Community Kitchen‘s Culinary Training Program. There will be games and live music by the Nathaniel Burnside Trio.

Vote for your favorite restaurants for the People’s Choice Award, and get to know the chefs and staff from all over Main Gate Square.
On The Menu Live‘s Matt Russell will host a competition between Main Gate Square’s best chefs and bartenders! A panel of special guest judges from local food organizations like Edible Baja Arizona and Tucson Foodie will award Best of Main Gate 2017 honors.

Parking is free in the Tyndall Ave Garage on Saturdays, or if you use the Streetcar, use the University Blvd./Tyndall Ave. stop.
