Guy Fieri bringing first of its kind festival to Columbus (or should we say, Flavortown)

Sav McKee

Remember when there were petitions floating around to change the name of Columbus to “Flavortown, OH?” That’s how dedicated people are to honoring Columbus-born culinary superstar, Guy Fieri.

Since changing our city’s name probably isn’t going to happen any time soon, we at least get the best next thing: Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Fest, the first-ever festival hosted by Fieri that’s dedicated to food, flavor and fun, hosted right here in Columbus. This festival will take place June 1-2, 2024, at the Lawn at CAS, located at 2540 Olentangy River Rd

According to a press release, the nation’s top chefs will be there too, and so will Fieri himself. This is your chance to eat, drink, and party with the Mayor of Flavortown and his best friends in the culinary world.  


For those who aren’t familiar with the Mayor of Flavortown, Guy Fieri is a chef, restaurateur, bestselling author, and award-winning TV host, and he has an affinity for Columbus. “I was actually born in Columbus, Ohio, so one might say it’s pretty much the birthplace of Flavortown,” said Fieri. “But in 2024, we’re making it official with the launch of Flavortown Fest, two full days of awesome music, the best chefs, real deal food from around the nation and a whole lotta fun that you’re gonna have to see to believe! This festival will truly be the first of its kind and I couldn’t be more stoked to bring it to my original hometown.”

Two-days tickets are on sale now, starting at $155, and can be purchased here. Portions of proceeds from every ticket sold will support various charities in and around the Columbus area, with a focus on First Responders, Veterans, and other organizations. Headline performances and more details will be announced soon.

“Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Fest will be unlike any other festival. Like Guy, it will be bold, loud, bad-ass, and full of flavor with unparalleled surprises, one-of-a-kind programming and Guy-curated curveballs all weekend long,” said the press release.
