    Loved it! More people and vendors than I expected. Obviously it needs to be in a place with more space to walk and eat.

    Great event! But a victim of its own success -- hopefully you manage to find a bigger field next year!

    FUN! It was the second fermentation fest for me too. This time around there were a lot more guests and vendors. Carpinteria loved it, and hopefully everybody loved carp back :)

    Fabulous event! Great speakers, food sampling, lunch and happy people interested in learning and having fun. Pickle making was the best. I'm looking forward to eating my pickles (photo added) :)
