They also have around 50 non-food vendors selling paintings, anime-themed clothing and hand-crafted jewelry.

The festival features live entertainment with DJ’s and local artists. There are water balling activities in a staged pool and double stacked bungee jumping activities for adults and kids.

Outside of the food festival, which only happens in the summer, the event promoters, FoodieLand and 626 Night Market, have events throughout California year-round.
