I have been living in Georgia since 2009, and in 2014, I was JUST finding out about Taste of Atlanta. Ugh, why haven't I heard about it before? I am a foodie, and I have no idea how this event went on unnoticed. So I got tickets as soon as I could, then called my friend Shelly and asked if she wanted to go.
When I got there, it was like foodie heaven! So many restaurant vendors, so much food and so many different variety of drinks. They even had different shows, like live cooking shows. People from all over were there walking around tasting different food.
I'm the type of person who will try almost anything once. And I must say, my taste buds were going crazy. My daughter, Shelly and I probably tasted food from damn near every vendor. You have to use your tickets to taste the food. Almost like what you do at a carnival, each vendor costs you a certain amount of tickets for their foods. If you run out, you can always find a booth (they are located in different areas) and purchase more tickets. Most of the vendors require between 2-6 tickets, and many of them give you a decent amount of food to taste.
Bubble Tea, Shaved Ice, Vegan Recipes, Tacos, Ceviche...yum!
Every year they have different (and some of the same) restaurant vendors, So there's always something different to look forward to each year. We had a good time, so if you're ever in Atlanta, I suggest going to Taste of Atlanta.
