The Ramen Yokocho Festival will be returning to the Santa Anita Racetrack, starting tomorrow: March 28th and 29th…sorta kinda.
While the Ramen Yokocho people will be putting it on, the main focus will be on the First Time All-U.S. Ramen Championship.
All the people attending the Ramen Fest/Championship will receive a ballot to cast their vote for the best U.S. Ramen Champion. There will be 11 ramen shops; 4 from Japan, and 7 from the U.S. Only the U.S. ramen shops are eligible for competing in the Ramen Championship.
FYI, for those who wish to avoid the crowds, there will be express lane tickets available for purchase on the website, which will only be available through pre-sale only.
Admission to Santa Anita Racetrack $5 (This is a mandatory charge for the venue, the Ramen Festival is free) Children under 12 get in free.
