Alpharetta – More than 62 restaurants will be ready to dish out their specialties on Thursday, May 2, 2019 as Taste of Alpharetta celebrates its 29th year. Taste of Alpharetta attracts more than 35,000 patrons between 5-10 pm, and takes place in Downtown Alpharetta, encompassing Milton Avenue, Roswell Street, Old Roswell Street, Canton Street and Old Canton Street. In addition to fantastic food, patrons will enjoy a culinary competition, live music on 3 stages, family Fun Zone and more. This year the city is adding a few new features to the event, including a beer garden presented by Smile Generation full of local brews, and a “Locally Grown” area featuring fun and educational activities put on by food-focused community organizations.
We are excited to announce The Taste of Alpharetta is partnering with Second Helpings Atlanta for the event’s food rescue. Each restaurant will have the opportunity to donate left over food, at the end of the event, to Second Helpings Atlanta. Since 2004, Second Helpings Atlanta’s community of volunteers has been picking up surplus, nutritious, perishable and prepared food and delivering it to the many front-line agencies in the Metro Atlanta area that feed the hungry every day. This donated food gets diverted from landfills and is used to feed those in need, making Atlanta a more environmentally responsible metropolitan area.
This FREE admission event invites patrons to purchase food and activity tickets – 10 tickets for $5.00. Tickets are redeemed at participating restaurant booths for a wide selection of tastes that range from $.50 – $4.00 per sample. Tickets may also be redeemed in the “Locally Grown” area and Fun Zone area for a variety of activities including engaging educational experiences, inflatables and a variety of children’s activities.
Local chefs will compete in the Taste of Alpharetta Culinary Competition from 5pm – 7pm, with select chefs conducting cooking demonstrations on the Culinary Competition Stage. The Taste of Alpharetta Culinary Competition Awards will be presented at 8:30pm for the top chefs in each category. Come visit the new Culinary Stage location on Roswell St and cheer on your favorite chefs. As well as vote for your favorite restaurant in the 2019 People’s Choice Award.
