Not Attending Events Because of Covid, But Want to Support the Event?

We want to make the event as safe as possible for as many people as possible. This ultimately means there will be some people who are still unable to attend the event due to being high risk for Covid.

We didn't want to leave you out this year either! You can still get a little taste of the event and help support our return by purchasing a tiered badge and we will mail all your BITE SWAG to you.
