Las Vegas Foodie Fest, a Red Dragon event, celebrated a successful weekend at The Lot across from the Luxor. The event was presented by MGM Resorts International and PepsiCo. More than 45,000 attendees passed through the gates over the weekend to enjoy more than 50 food trucks and specialty vendors from across the country.
Foodies clamored to Las Vegas Foodie Fest to enjoy The Maine Lobster Lady, Fukuburger, Jogasaki Sushi Burrito, Hummus Factory and Island Time Floats, among others. MGM Resorts International also featured some of its top restaurants from various world-class properties. White Castle, America’s first hamburger chain and home to the Original Slider, proved once again as the biggest draw serving an average of 20,000 sliders per day.
In addition to a seemingly endless array of food and drink options, Las Vegas Foodie Fest also offered fun for the whole family with a Ferris wheel, carnival rides, games, contests and special live entertainment throughout the weekend. Headliners included Beacher’s Madhouse on Thursday and Saturday, Fantasy and Tournament of Kings on Saturday and an energized performance by world-renowned dance crew Jabbawockeez on Sunday afternoon.
A portion of proceeds from Las Vegas Foodie Fest benefitted the Injured Police Officer’s Fund (IPOF), a local nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the financial burden suffered by police officers and their families in the event of a line-of-duty injury or death. The Red Dragon VIP Tent, complete with sponsored cocktails, gourmet appetizers, plush seating and a photo booth, was presented by Lee’s Discount Liquor with a portion of proceeds benefitting the Lee’s Helping Hands Foundation.
