Don't fret if you procrastinated or saved some dough and didn't buy a ticket for the famed Aspen Food & Wine Classic, says Curbed Ski. The sold-out festival features more than the seminars, tastings, and other consumer events that come with the $1450 price tag.

Among Curbed Ski's 10 tips for crashing the festival: Run the Food & Wine Classic 5K Charity Race hosted by celebrity chefs Richard Blais, Stephanie Izard, Tim Love, and Marcus Samuelsson; check out Heritage Fire and Grand Cochon; and go for some live music in the company of many chefs with the John Butler Trio at Belly Up.
