When can I start Touring? The opening event/registration begins at 9:00 AM and ends at 11:00 AM. From 10:00 AM – 2:30PM you may begin visiting the kitchen stops in any order you choose. Each stop will contain a decadent food sample from a local restaurant, kitchen-related items for sale and a stunning table-setting display by a local store for dining room inspiration. New this year – a home-related silent auction item at each stop on the Tour!
Where does the Tour end? After you have experienced the Tour of Kitchens, you are invited to attend the Closing Event from 1:30 – 4 PM – details to come!
Do I have to print my ticket? Nope! You can check in at the Opening Event at Infiniti of Coral Gables with your email confirmation or just your name. You will then receive your wristband. It is important to keep your wristband on all day as you will not be granted entry into any of the stops or the Closing Event without your wristband.
