Big Bite 2024 - One Incredible Event - Two Great Tickets


Grab the all-inclusive GA ‘Generous Appetite’ ticket to taste it all. Craving a little something extra? Big foodies will want to spring for the VIP ‘Very Indulgent Plate’ ticket to get even more out of Big Bite, like hands-on workshops, a cocktail hour with champagne and caviar service, a rideshare discount code, complimentary drinks, and a smokin’ swag package to celebrate the occasion.

Guests will want to stick around to vote for their favorite dishes and drinks from all vendors, and throw their hat in the ring for THE BIG EATER COMPETITION (or hang back for heckling to see who takes the cake).

We’re on a mission to give Oklahoma foodies a space to celebrate the people, flavors, and community that feed our state. Big Bite is a feast for the senses and the perfect place for gastro-enthusiasts to go big and delight themselves with the best Oklahoma has to offer.

More details and full schedule below!
