If you are a foodie, or just enjoy trying new dishes and meeting new people, then the Taste of Atlanta is just for you! An annual event for twelve years running in Midtown, Taste of Atlanta will be happening October 25, 26 and 27th this year. This premier food and libation festival showcases the creativity and diversity of many of Atlanta’s top restaurants. The event will take place in Tech Square, which is at the corner of 5th and Spring Streets and is a short walk from the North Avenue MARTA rail station. The festival begins with a kick-off party on Friday night from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. and will feature great eats and rocking tunes!
General admission tickets for this event are available at the Taste of Atlanta website, www.tasteofatlanta.com, and are $30.00 in advance and $40.00 at the door. General admittance will allow you to enter the event and comes with 10 taste coupons. You can also purchase a VIP ticket for $75.00 in advance ($85.00 at the door if not sold out), which gives you not only admittance to the festival and 10 taste coupons, but also entry to the Food+Wine+Beer+Cocktail Experience.
Not only will Taste of Atlanta feature excellent eats from Atlanta’s premier restaurants, but there will be live cooking demonstrations, hands-on cooking classes, and the Family Food Zone with many interactive activities for everyone! Taste of Atlanta not only draws Atlantans but many around the southeast and from even farther away. If you are thinking about attending, and need a place to stay, The University Inn at Emory is the place for you!
The University Inn at Emory is conveniently located in the historic Druid Hills district of East Atlanta, and is MARTA-accessible. Parking is free, and our family-owned and operated Inn will be a wonderful respite away from the crowds before and after the festival. Our spacious rooms are equipped with many amenities such as microwaves and refrigerators, and we are always pet-friendly.
