The throwdown purchase link will be available Tuesday morning, August 29. A Facebook post will go out when tickets are available.
Tickets are $10 per sample box. Each box contains one of each entry. Because there are a limited number of tickets available, please limit your purchases to ONE ticket per couple. This allows more people to enjoy the Throwdown.
If you purchase a ticket online, please bring a paper or digital confirmation of your purchase to the market and show it at the Uptown table at the entrance. You will be given a Throwdown ticket that you can exchange for your sample box. We begin distributing samples about 5:30. You must redeem your ticket by 6:00; after this time your ticket is void. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable to other events.
