It's almost time to get your tickets for the Southern Food & Beverage Museum's annual Summer Kids Culinary Camp! Tickets for the 2018 Camp will go on sale March 6th, at 12 PM here on this site. We will have 30 spots available for each week of camp, and as a reminder, we have sold out every week of camp for the past 2 years, so we encourage you to purchase your tickets in advance! Don't forget, a membership to the National Food & Beverage Foundation (the parent organization of SoFAB) supports the museum and gives you a discount on camp as well as Kids in the Kitchen tickets all year round. *

SoFAB Kids Culinary Camp is a week-long, half day camp dedicated to teaching nutritional literacy through food preparation, nutrition activities, food history, games, and, the best part, eating! Camp runs from 9 AM to 12 PM. Admission is $130 per week, $100 for members. For multiple week registrations, it will be $110 for non-members, and $90 for members.

Tickets will be sold here through If you've used Active before, you should have an account that you can log in to. Please do not register children for whom you are not a parent or guardian because we ask for parents to sign liability waivers. If you are not a SoFAB Member and you purchase the member ticket, you will lose your spot as we will have to re-register at the regular rate. If you are unsure if you're a member, please contact Kelsey Parris ( or 504-267-7490). If you have any issues with registering, please call us at 504-267-7490. Tickets may be refunded or exchanged up to 72 hours prior to the event. After 72 hours no refunds will be available.

Please note: there are 4 types of tickets you can buy: Nonmember- $130; Member- $100; Nonmember Multiple Week- $110; Member Multiple Week- $90. Multiple week tickets are an incentive for registration. It does not include multiple children in a family attending, only multiple weeks that one child is attending. If your child attends one week of camp and wants to attend again, if available you can purchase a multiple week ticket for another week of camp. The multiple week discount cannot be retroactively applied to your original ticket. If you register your child for multiple weeks of camp, and your child is unable to attend the 2nd session of camp, a refund will be given with the ticket difference taken from the second registration. Student/Industry memberships are ineligible for camp discounts.

Please feel free to email me at with questions before purchasing. The museum number is 504.569.0405. We will be checking all discounted registrations for corresponding memberships and/or multiple week registrations. Any discrepancies found will result in forfeiting your spot.
