Bite of Seattle is one of the largest festivals in the city and we recommend that you consider the festival environment before bringing your dog. There are large crowds, music, and noises throughout the festival grounds, so we ask that you evaluate whether this is suitable for your pet. All festival attendees must adhere to the City of Seattle, Seattle Center, and Festival Guidelines.

When users make their first purchase, they will be given the choice to load their payment method into the CHEQ app. Once completed, the payment information will be securely stored within the app. However, prior to this step, preloading payment methods is not feasible. Fortunately, there is a convenient option available for pre-ordering items before the festival. This ensures a seamless and stress-free experience upon arrival, as attendees can effortlessly collect their pre-ordered items.
