There will be Asian snacks and food, cultural and contemporary entertainment, art, and of course – BOBA! BOBA! BOBA!

 

 

You must purchase a ticket to enter the event space, and each boba-tastic ticket includes a sample card for of up to 10 different boba tea drinks, with access to all the uniquely fun areas we will be creating at this event! In addition to the ten samples, tickets get you a Boba Festival Limited Edition Memorabilia Collectible, lots of entertainment, and an unforgettable experience with friends, family, and BOBA!

Each VIP ticket will get two sample cards (20 sample opportunities), exclusive seating, re-entry privileges, a Boba Festival Limited Edition Memorabilia Collectible, and a Boba Festival t-shirt!

We will have different boba vendors, each ready to serve up their bobalicious drinks in sample-sized servings!

Boba — the drink — originates from Taiwan, and originally, boba pearls were used in shaved ice desserts and paired with syrups, beans, and delectably chewy rice balls. Milk tea was also consumed regularly and thankfully, someone decided to merge the two, thus creating the genius, beloved drink we now have today.

More details will be coming out in the coming months – but for now – save the date for this glorious, taste bud satisfying boba event of the year!

We are going to fan the flames of Boba Culture – the next big culture that will quench a thirsty person’s craving of all things bobatacular!
