18th Annual Taste of Marietta is This Sunday, May 1, 2011 – Come Out and Visit Me as I Judge the Best of Marietta!
I’m so excited to be a judge again at the 18th Annual Taste of Marietta this year! After last year’s event, at which I had a blast, I was honored and excited to be invited back!
There are numerous opportunities to attend “Tastes” around the Atlanta area and Taste of Marietta is one of the most popular. Last year, over 100,000 people hit the streets of the Marietta Square to sample their favorites – and the festival has expanded this year to encompass the entire square to accommodate the crowd of attendees and vendors alike! As Cobb County’s largest food festival, Taste of Marietta features over 70 restaurants and caterers offering samples of their tastiest tastes – tastes range from as little as 50-cents upto $4.00 each and admission to the festival is FREE!
The entertainment is all day long, with four stages of live music, ending with a sunset concert featuring Atlanta’s own Banks & Shane on the Main Stage for the “Sunset Concert”. You can reserve tables for the Sunset Concert in advance by calling the Marietta Welcome Center at 770-429-1115, or you can bring your picnic blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy the alfresco concert on the lawn. Other entertainment includes fun and games at Kid’s Alley and “Sports Corner,” where you can meet up with the Atlanta Braves, the Atlanta Hawks, the Atlanta Thrashers, and more… plus meet celebrity chefs and gourmet samples at the Gas South Cooking Stage.
Taste of Marietta takes place on Historic Marietta Square, which is the home to many of the featured restaurants and dozens of fun shops – make a day of it and head to Marietta Square for a fabulous fun- and food-filled day – today, Sunday, May 1, 2011, from 11AM to 7PM! For a information regarding the festival schedule and parking details, please visit the Taste of Marietta official website – click here for the restaurant vendor list.
I’ll be there from 10 AM until about 3 PM, judging, strolling and visiting vendors! Tweet me @365Atlanta if you’re attending – hope to see you there!
