Putting picnics to shame for 33 years

Dates & Times:
- July 18 – 11AM to 8PM
- July 19-28 – open 11AM to 11PM

Original Taste Experience
Since 1984, Taste of Edmonton has been offering a delicious sampling of what Edmonton restaurants have to offer. Of course we like to keep things fresh!
With all of the city’s best food and drinks gathered together at our new location, the Federal Building Plaza, this festival will be sure to hit your sweet spot. Beer or wine, sweet or savoury, gluten or gluten-free, folk music or jazz – whatever you fancy, you will be able to find it at Taste of Edmonton 2018!
Getting to Taste
Being in the heart of Edmonton, Edmonton Transit Service is your best and easiest bet to get to Taste. Grandin/Government Centre LRT Station is located right on site and a number of bus stops are just steps away from the plaza. We strongly recommend taking advantage of ETS regular bus/LRT service and Park and Ride service. Plan your trip or use the transit information on Google Maps or Apple Maps on your mobile device.
