It’s officially festival season! One of our favorites, The Taste of Tacoma, is coming up this weekend!
There will be tons of yummy food, of course, plus activities for the kids and more.
Admission is Free! You’ll want to bring money for your grub…..and maybe your comfy pants!
I get to be a celebrity food judge this year, and I’m super excited. Honestly, I’m excited not to be eating food shaped like nuggets! I’ll be doing a quick Facebook Live Friday morning to give you a look at some of the family activities, so be sure to look for that.
The Taste of Tacoma features tasty treats from over 30 food trucks and specialty restaurants. You can get everything from strawberry shortcake to alligator on a stick! Do you think I’ll end up eating alligator? I’ll let you know…..
No item or combo. plate is over 10.00 (Love that!) and every restaurant has one, “Bite,” item that is just 3.75.
There is also a variety of live entertainment, vendors, and demos.
It’s smaller than the Bite of Seattle, which is a good thing, in my opinion! There’s enough great food to nosh yourself silly, but it’s still possible to have a conversation with your foodie pals and actually enjoy yourself. It’s all at beautiful Point Defiance, and I know it’s drizzly now, but the weather is supposed to be improving just in time for the weekend!
Big thing to know if you’re new? Don’t try to park there! There is all kinds of construction going on by the zoo right now, so take the shuttle from TCC instead. It’s FREE, and it will save you a huge headache.
Emerald Queen Casino’s Taste of Tacoma® presented by BECU is June 24-26 at Point Defiance. You can get more information right here, and at their Facebook page, and, of course, look for our posts, too! If you’re a regular, we’d love for you to leave tips and tell us what dishes we have to try.
