Taste of Dallas 2012

10 Jul

Put your finger where you fork is, and your palette where Fair Park is, cause Taste of Dallas is back with sensational samples, flavorful dishes and charismatic culinary experts! If your tastebuds say “Yes” but your summer diet says “no” that’s no problem. You’re sure to find a healthy dish or the means to prepare your own with the many chef demonstrations taking place. Plus you would’ve walked off most of the tastes wandering the large Fair Park vicinity.

The 26th Annual Taste of Dallas returns to bring Dallas food lovers the biggest taste test of North Dallas outside of the Texas State Fair. It’s getting there with more than 60 restaurants featuring sought after delicacies and the top chefs of Dallas. From Friday, July 13th to Sunday, July 15th Taste of Dallas takes over Fair Park’s 277 acres of fair grounds to place chef demonstrations, cook book signings, a big marketplace, wine/beer tastings and live music all in one location.

Admission to Taste of Dallas is $8.00 and children get in free! Tickets are also available for $5.00 at Albertsons. TOD tastings ranges from $1-$3 each. Parking may also cost you for about $10-$12 or hop the DART Green Line.

Taste of Dallas 2011: The Big D Celebrates 25 Years

6 Jul

From July 8th-10th the best North Texas chefs, restaurants, bands and artists will gather at Fair Park for one of Dallas’ largest summer events. Starting last year Taste of Dallas moved their location to Fair Park after 24 years in West End. The new location provides expansion of all the activities that take place at the annual festival adding 150,000 square feet of indoor space so you have a chance to escape the heat when you want. TOD benefits the American Heart Association. Each year some of Dallas’ finest or tastiest restaurants come together for this rapidly growing event.

No More West End but Much More on the Menu

The festival is a three-day event so you have a full weekend to choose from when you would like to go. TOD will be going on come rain or shine! You’ll be given the opportunity to taste food from restaurants you’ve always wanted to try and maybe even ones you’ve never heard of! The Culinary Marketplace will be full of all your kitchen needs and unique specialty food products from homemade jellies/jams to olive oils, sauces, and salsas. A list of Dallas’ top chefs will display their skills live each day!

What’s a food party without some great music! A number of talented local and regional musicians will compliment that tasty cuisine on Gilley’s Music Stage as well as visiting celebrities. Come celebrate the best of Dallas’ music scene with local bands Friday through Sunday. To compliment the food and music will also be some artwork. You’ll find a wide range of artwork from some of Dallas’ well known to new emerging talent.

While inside the festival you can enjoy tastings each priced at $1 to $3. You’ll have lots to choose from so prepare your palate!

TOD Hours:

Friday, 7/8: 4:00pm to 11:00pm

Saturday, 7/9: 11:00am to 11:00pm

Sunday, 7/10: 11:00am to 6:00pm

Parking is available on the fairgrounds for $12. Trams run from parking lots right up to the entrance of Taste of Dallas. DART’s Green Line stops at the front door to Taste of Dallas. No parking required!
