Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Festival Has Been Canceled

Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Festival, scheduled for June 1 and 2 at The Lawn at CAS, has been canceled.

This event, created by celebrity chef Guy Fieri, was supposed to be a fusion of music and culinary delights, with performances by Greta Van Fleet and Kane Brown. However, due to “unforeseen circumstances,” the festival will not proceed as planned.

Tickets, with a two-day pass starting at $155, had already gone on sale. A spokesperson expressed regret over the cancellation, thanking fans for their support and understanding. Full refunds are being issued to all ticket holders.

The festival was not just about entertainment; it was a platform for Fieri to share his passion for food and community. It aimed to feature a selection of Fieri’s favorite eateries from around the country, including those from his hit show, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. The lineup also boasted notable acts such as Bret Michaels, LOCASH, and Niko Moon.

Fieri, a Columbus native, had envisioned the Flavortown Festival as a celebration of his roots and a showcase of culinary and musical talent. Despite the setback, Fieri’s still got other commitments to the Columbus community. His upcoming Italian restaurant at Scioto Downs is set to open this spring, offering a taste of Flavortown despite the festival’s absence.

Furthermore, the festival intended to launch Flavortown Cares, supporting local charities. In lieu of the event, a $10,000 donation will still be made to the National Veterans Memorial and Museum, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Ohio, and the Mid-Ohio Food Collective.
