Taste of Atlanta – Sweet Sixteen

This is a special year as Taste of Atlanta celebrates 16 sweet years of turning ‘tasters into diners’ this October 20th, 21st and 22nd. Taste of Atlanta’s three-day event will take place for its first time in a new location, Historic Fourth Ward Park in Old Fourth Ward. Each day of the event is an opportunity for tasters and chefs to come together and bond over the unique flavors of each Atlanta neighborhood.

Taste of Atlanta 2017

Over 100 Atlanta restaurants participate in Taste of Atlanta and represent the growing culinary landscape of the city. Newcomer restaurants participating this year include Hattie B’s, Le Bilboquet, Hampton + Hudson, The Halal Guys, Bezoria, 4Rivers Atlanta, and Better Half.

Like many restaurants, Taste of Atlanta continues to support Atlanta’s non-profit community. Taste has joined together to support The Giving Kitchen, Second Helpings Atlanta, Cooking Matters, American Culinary Federation (Greater Atlanta Chapter), Hospitality Education Foundation of Georgia and Georgia Organics.

Taste of Atlanta is kicking off this year with a Sweet 16 party theme to commemorate its anniversary of bringing the community together over its love for food. This will include a variety of Atlantan dessert favorites such as High Road Craft Ice Cream & Sorbet and Sprinkles Cupcakes. This all-inclusive party offers an over-the-top theme and an unlimited variety of desserts will help set the scene for the main event.

The past few years, Taste of Atlanta restaurants have achieved efficient visits and purchases using the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology making the festival completely cashless. This technology is an advantage to Taste of Atlanta participating restaurants since it allows for communication after the festival. This year, restaurants can get into the transition of turning ‘tasters into diners’ by sending out specials and promotions to participating guests.
