Out of an abundance of caution and in order to follow the guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Dallas Observer is postponing its scheduled Iron Fork 2020 date (April 29) until Aug. 12. All tickets purchased for the prior date will be honored for the rescheduled date.
While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, staff and community very seriously.
Iron Fork, one of the city’s biggest annual food events, marks its 10th year this summer, with more than 40 restaurants showing up with bites, beer, wine and cocktails, and two big-time chefs competing in a live cooking competition.
We'll have hotter temperatures by then, but guess what: This popular event is all inside.
General admission ($50) gets you in at 7 p.m. for unlimited food samples from all of those restaurants alongside beer, wine, cocktails and entertainment.
If you get the VIP ticket ($75), you’ll have access an hour earlier and complimentary valet parking before 6:30 p.m. Fewer people and easy parking at Fair Park? Yes, please.
We’re going to have a long list of restaurants showing up for the August event. But for now we have a preview of those who are joining us:
Blue Mesa Grill
Del Sur Tacos
Fish City Grill
Great One Cookie Company
House of Blues
Ked’s Artisan Ice Cream & Treats
Kuai Asian Kitchen
Ojeda's Mexican Restaurant
Ross & Hall Beer Garten + Kitchen
Scardello Artisan Cheese
Sundown at Granada
Sweet Peaks Ice Cream
The Dream Kitchen by Mallery Tuck
XO Coffee and Bistro
With many more to come
Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to celebrating our diverse culinary scene with you in August.
Iron Fork will be from 7 to 10 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 12 at Centennial Hall at Fair Park, 1001 Washington St. (South Dallas)
