Frequently Asked Questions

Are children allowed at BITE?

Yes! Although the atmosphere of BITE is centered on adult fun (think: date night!), children are allowed. Children 12 and under get in free with a ticketed adult.

What happens in case of bad weather?

We are a rain or shine event! If inclement weather is approaching the event will either be delayed or canceled. Event organizers will be in touch via all channels of social media and email notifications. All tickets are non-refundable.

Can I buy tickets at the door?

Due to high demand, all tickets will be sold in advance. No on-site tickets sales take place at any BITE events.

Does my ticket include all food and beverage?

Yes! In fact you won’t need to take out your wallet again once you get inside the gates. Talk about bang for your buck 🙂 

The streets around 8th Street Market are under construction, where do I park?

With the expansion of Downtown Bentonville, the roads are always changing. We will notify you the week of the event with directions and parking details. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

What items are prohibited from the event?

Security will check all bags at the entrance of the event. Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: outside food and beverage, drugs, weapons, backpacks, large bags and suitcases. We encourage you to check our bag policy for any clarification!

Is there a dress code?

Whew, that Arkansas heat is rough! Please plan for a hot summer night while attending BITE. While we don’t have a specific dress code, we encourage you to dress smart casual. 

Does BITE benefit a charity?

BITE benefits the NWA Food Bank and Brightwater: A Center for the Study of Food. Curious to learn more? Check them out at nwafoodbank.org or brightwater.org. Thanks for help us supporting these great organizations that directly benefit our community.
