ATLANTA (Oct. 14, 2016) – The 15th annual Taste of Atlanta is just days away. The city’s can’t-miss food festival, taking place Oct. 21-23 in Midtown at Tech Square, promises a delicious weekend packed with cooking demonstrations, celebrity appearances and bites from more than 90 of Atlanta’s best restaurants. Guests who have purchased tickets in advance are receiving their RFID general admission and VIP wristbands now, but there’s still time to purchase these time-saving wristbands and skip the long lines.
Advance wristbands can be purchased online and picked between Oct. 17-21 at the Ticket Alternative office at 1206 Spring St. NW, Atlanta, GA, 30309. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day. This allows guests to bypass the ticketing tents and breeze right in. They can also add additional Taste Points online before the event or at Taste Point Top Up tents located throughout the festival. To register a wristband now, or for further information, check out the handy registration link and FAQ here.
