“I wanted to organize this event because I believe food and games bring people together. This is to be a community event where you can enjoy new foods with your friends and family. You can meet new friends over a fun board game. Some of my own lasting friendships have started at a game night,” said Jason Kwan, Creator of Snacky Snacks.

In addition to the 21 different food vendors, over a dozen local retail shops will be there too! 

But wait, there’s more! 

While you’re munching on a big bag of kettle corn, you can get your gaming on. The festival will have traditional boards game like Monopoly, card games, lawn games, video games and… a Super Smash Bros Tournament! 

“You can win fun prizes such as a private escape room. We will also have corn hole and giant Jenga for people to play. Lastly, Phoenix Gaming Lounge is organizing our board game library. You can discover new board games to play, and they will provide demos.”
