Flavortown Fest is bound to surprise you at every turn just when you think you’ve seen it all.
“I was actually born in Columbus, Ohio, so one might say it’s pretty much the birthplace of Flavortown,” said Fieri. “But in 2024, we’re making it official with the launch of Flavortown Fest, two full days of awesome music, the best chefs, real deal food from around the nation and a whole lotta fun that you’re gonna have to see to believe! This festival will truly be the first of its kind and I couldn’t be more stoked to bring it to my original hometown.”
Committed to making an impact on the community, Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Fest in partnership with the Guy Fieri Foundation, will donate a portion of proceeds from every ticket sold to support various charities in and around the Columbus area with a focus on First Responders, Veterans and more.
“We are so proud to host the inaugural Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Fest on The Lawn at CAS,” added Dr. Michael Dennis, Vice President CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society. “The Lawn has become a premier destination for the biggest events in Columbus and Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Fest will be no exception. This is going to be an exceptional culinary, music and entertainment experience for the city that’s full of fun and will help support the efforts of our hardworking community.”
Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Fest will be unlike any other festival. Like Guy, it will be bold, loud, bad-ass, and full of flavor with unparalleled surprises, one-of-a-kind programming and Guy-curated curveballs all weekend long.
