If you were excited about the return of the annual food festival A Taste of Del Ray, you either already have your tickets or I have some very bad news.

The 14th annual Taste of Del Ray is completely sold out. Ticketing website Eventbrite noted that no tickets will be available at the door and, at best, hopeful Del Ray diners can sign up for a waitlist.

“Ticket holders will enjoy a wide range of tastes from top Del Ray restaurants and can cast their votes for the People’s Choice award,” the event description read. “A VIP ticket option will also be offered, giving foodies the first bites with early admission at 12 p.m. and a wine tasting until 1 p.m.”

The event is scheduled for Sunday, June 4, from 1-3 p.m.

Participating restaurants include:

  • Bella Napoli
  • Cheesetique
  • Del Ray Cafe
  • Del Ray Pizzeria
  • District Biscuit Company
  • Evening Star Cafe
  • Hops N Shine
  • Kaizen Tavern
  • Lena’s Wood-Fired Pizza & Tap
  • Northside 10
  • Pork Barrel BBQ
  • Taqueria Poblano
  • Spice Kraft Indian Bistro
  • St. Elmo’s Coffee Pub/Market 2 Market.
