Frequently Asked Questions
When & Where
Eat Your Heart Happy (EYHH) Date and location will be announced 2018. 10AM-7PM Rain or Shine
Is EYHH a Music Festival or Cook-Off Competition or Arts Festival?
EYHH is a true hybrid of all. EYHH will have national level performance acts, that in other venues would warrant much higher ticket prices, as well as regional and local acts performers and workshops ALL THE WHILE conducting a wold-class food competition with great cash prizes! Our Vendor Committee is committed to bringing in arts and sales vendors of the highest quality and enjoyment.
How are you affiliated with The American Heart Association & The Kitchen Community?
EYHH chooses each year Ambassadors that proceeds from that year's event will go to. We are excited and honored to have The American Heart Association & The Kitchen Community as our 2017 Ambassadors.
What types of tickets will be available?
$10 ticket gets you entrance to the event and access to all music, vendors and workshops
$30 SAMPLER JUDGE ticket gets all that PLUS access to the team competition booths to sample their foods, lobby for them to treat you well for a good score, and be a "Sampler Judge" that will weigh in on their total score for the competition. Ooh yeah...and ALL-YOU-CAN-DRINK beverages at EYHH
$50 OFFICIAL CELEBRITY JUDGE ticket gets you a seat to be an official judge for the competition & access to the VIP/Business Mingle Tent.
Is EYHH only for healthy eaters or vegetarians or vegans?
EYHH will have plenty of food vendors and food trucks available for vegan, vegetarian, and meat eating diets alike. EYHH is designed to appeal to EVERYONE in the community regardless of diet. While workshops and many of the activities and competition categories are designed to expose, encourage and reinforce healthy eating and lifestyles, we made sure to have non vegan & vegetarian categories as well, like Fish Tacos (no fry) and Turkey Burger, because we know not everyone eats in this manner. EYHH also ensures that the quality of performers and musicians will be at a level that will appeal to those in the community who would not otherwise be engaged by a healthy eating community event.
Parking & Bicycles & Peer-to-peer driving
Parking is available at no cost. There is a limited amount of bicycle parking (bring your own bike lock). There is special drop/pick-up off points close to entrance for Uber/Lyft/Taxi transportation.
EYHH is wheelchair accessible as the Live Garden at the Memphis Botanic Garden is.
Are pets allowed at EYHH?
While the producers of EYHH love animals and pets, Pets are not allowed. Service animals that are trained to assist an individual with a disability are allowed on the grounds of Tom Lee Park provided the animal does not pose a danger or threat to other service animals or patrons. Owners of service animals are responsible for the animal’s personal care. For entry into the events with a service animal, please bring your certificate and place the service animal in the appropriate vest to identify the animal. Service animals must be under the control of their owners at all times and must be on a leash at all times.
