This event will be much larger, probably 3000. It'll be running 11am to 6pm.
Anyone do events like this? any thoughts on amount would be great
Is this just tasting portions? A lot of the on-topic responses seem to be assuming that you will be serving full sized portions, which I don't think is the case based on your original post.

So, assuming tasting portions of 1 ounce each, you meed 3000 ounces, or approx 24 gallons.

Even that seems unrealistic. Make what you can easily transport and keep hot and serve until you run out!
