Taste of Dallas is a slice of life in North Texas, and brings together all the best of what it means to be alive here and now: delectable food, inspiring art, and music that gets you moving. Celebrating its 30th annual festival, new for this year are unforgettable experiences you simply must try: the all-new Foodie Experience Presented by TangoTab is an indoor event inside Taste of Dallas that includes food and alcohol samplings, chef demonstrations, and entertainment – all for a good cause.

For every ticket purchased, TangoTab will be able to help feed hungry people in our community through their work with local food banks. To celebrate Taste’s 30th birthday, join them for a slice of the giant cake being prepared by Carlo’s Bake Shop from the hit TV show Cake Boss!

Restaurants from across the region offer up tastes of their best dishes for only $2-$5 in the beautiful outdoor setting along Fair Park’s historic Esplanade fountains, Taste’s Restaurant Island. There is something to sample from a variety of restaurants, including: Fat Rabbit, RJ’s Mexican Cuisine, Gas Monkey, South Fork Texas Steak & Crab and even Texas perennial favorite Fletcher’s Corny Dogs.

More than a dozen of Dallas’s best food trucks will be in attendance as well as they pull right up to Food Truck Lane. Live cooking demos on the chef stage will entertain all weekend with performances and meet-and-greets with chefs including Chef Roshni from Food Network’s Chopped. And definitely don’t miss tasty shopping in the Taste Marketplace, where attendees can sample their way through the Fiesta Mart Mercado and from dozens of local culinary vendors.

In addition to all the delicious food, guests will enjoy music pouring out from the Taste Main Stage all weekend long, headlined by a performance from Everclear on Saturday evening. Taste of Dallas will also feature artists who are talented in all mediums – even chalk! More than 45 chalk artists will create masterpieces before your eyes on the sidewalks, while others show their impressive works in The Gallery.
