Want to know what to expect?
We’re cooking up some wonderful treats of all types for our gluten-free community!
First off, please don’t wait to purchase tickets!
The lines are getting longer every day, and will-call, print-at-home, as well as mobile tickets are all available to speed up the process!
We also have a number of different kinds of tickets available.
Here is a break down:
Group pricing = special price for 6 or more adults or kids (Saturday Sampler-all access)
General admission = speakers+non-food vendors+ farm activities (This is the best option for more sensitive individuals with multi-allergies).
Saturday sampler = general admission+food sampling (all-access)
Sampler and speakers only = just that. (However if you change you mind on site, you’ll be required to pay the farmer directly for access to the farm activities.)
NC FACES prices and ticket options are for the NC FACES volunteer support group members or multiple (more than 3) allergen persons.
Children under 2 get in free. Children 2-12 are at a reduced price.
VetTix has been available for families of veterans to enjoy the festivities free!
Admissions will be located at the Non-Food Vendor and Speaker Tent.
Everyone comes to General Admissions first.
This is also where Will-Call, Print-At-Home, and Mobile tickets will be checked in.
A copy of the program may be downloaded here:nctgif event program*
Food vendor samplers will be open 2:30-5:00 pm.
Those wanting to follow the guided tour can note the demo times enclosed on the program for food presenters.

Debbie knows the benefits in tailoring an approach to optimal health and will be discussing topics related to navigating the transitions.

I am so proud and happy to announce that NC FACES, a volunteer-only support group for parents and families of food allergic children will benefit from a portion of the proceeds. Here is more about them:
We are an all volunteer support group sharing information, support, and some fun. We provide a social and emotional support network for Food Allergic Families in all stages of learning about the process of living with food allergies. We will remain constant in our dedication to teach our children how to live fully productive, interactive, exciting, and safe lives.
Save the date on your calendar, so when tickets become available, you’ll be ready to be a part of this ground breaking fun!
Let us know if you’d like to participate! We have several levels of participation available.
We have two major goals:
We want to raise awareness about food allergies, especially gluten and wheat sensitivity, providing resources to educate and inform the public.
We also want to provide a live-action directory of Triangle businesses that are seriously knowledgeable about gluten-free living.
It is so important to maintain an active, safe, and balanced life as a gluten or allergy affected individual! We can do it!
The NC Triangle Gluten Intolerance Fair is off to a great start!
We are gathering resources and contacts who are thoroughly knowledgeable about the unique needs of gluten-free living.
Most of these resources will be located in the Triangle area, so that public attendees will have the ability to understand precisely what the Triangle has to offer gluten-intolerant individuals. All are welcome, as there is much to learn! Let’s bring everyone together!
Now for the fun stuff! We are currently seeking:
With varying levels of sponsorship, and online as well as event exposure.
Platinum sponsors receive front page placement on website, dedicated blog post of the business, social media postings, exclusive exposure at Friday night mixer, and key placement at the event.
Gold sponsors receive front page placement on the nctgif.com website, social media postings, and key placement at the event.
Silver sponsors receive front page placement on the website, social media postings, and placement at the event.
Customized sponsorship is available to assess your needs and budget.
***Social media will include mention of all sponsors during the event and recap***
These individuals should have an in-depth knowledge of the subject matter. They would be certified, well-qualified in their field, and have current licensure if applicable.
Gluten-free food, health, beauty, and fitness vendors are welcome.
All regulations and requirements must be met, as they are professionally responsible for whatever is offered.
The event will be kept to a manageable size, however it won’t happen without some awesome volunteers who will work short shifts, and receive free admission for the day.
