The journey to great food, drink, art and music starts on DART Rail at the 30th annual Taste of Dallas June 3-5 at Fair Park.
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 beverage samplings, chef demonstrations, and entertainment. It’s 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.
Fair Park will be filled with colorful creations in all media. More than 45 chalk artists will create masterpieces before your eyes on the sidewalks, while others show their impressive works in The Gallery. Love handmade art? Check out the new Etsy Dallas Artisan Market, where you can actually meet these creative entrepreneurs and take home some of their work.
Restaurants from across the region offer tastes of their best dishes for only $2-$5 in the beautiful outdoor setting at Taste’s Restaurant Island, along Fair Park’s historic Esplanade fountains. Enjoy the variety of several restaurants and vendors 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 Dallas food trucks will be at the event. 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.
