    This event was a TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT AND RIPP-OFF. Vendors were closing up at 8:30pm because there was nothing left (probably due to the fact there were only a handful of ‘real food’ vendors). Where was all the food? It was mostly alcohol. Last years event was amazing and that’s what made me and my friends want to attend this year (and the tickets cost less). This year my friends and I will be pursuing a refund as there was NOTHING left to enjoy. I mean come on, it’s a holiday weekend, people came out for this??? Everyone was totally ripped off and I’m not the only one who was complaining about it at this event. Also, Taste The East End knows it as they are already trying to remove any negative feedback on this event. I’ll never attend again. What a bad second year. #TasteTheEastEnd2016 #ShameOnYou #RIPPOFF


    1. I am sorry you had a bad experience with the event I will pass it along to those who ran it.
