Taste of Dallas 2010 moves from West End to Fair Park
First Electric Daisy Carnival, now Taste of Dallas.
DALLAS The yummy, fresh fare may be the only thing almost too-hot-to-handle at Dallas’ favorite food festival this year, as Taste of Dallas makes a move to Fair Park. The event features a new location to offer a chance for participants to escape the heat and a much larger area for the rapidly growing event.
Held in West End since its inception, the new location for Taste of Dallas 2010, Fair Park, will allow for expansion of all of the festival’s activities and will add 150,000 square feet of indoor space to Taste of Dallas.
Fantastic food from dozens of Dallas’ top restaurants, exciting music and entertainment, and plenty of activities for all members of the family makes for a robust menu of fun at Dallas’ most anticipated food festival of the year. Tens of thousands of attendees are expected to taste items from restaurants around the city, all in one place and with no entrée more than $3.
Top chefs from the Dallas area will be an important part of the culinary experience via exciting demonstrations and sampling from their exclusive restaurants.
Friday night will feature a throw-back to the ‘80s, with several tribute bands ready to resurrect one of the greatest decades in music. Saturday will showcase some of Texas’ best country talent, perhaps best enjoyed from the Gilley’s location next to the main stage, where the beer and boots are plentiful. Sunday will feature some of Dallas’ best bands and musicians, plus kids’ zones -- including bounce houses, giant slides, interactive games, and meet-and-greets with their favorite cartoon characters -- and plenty of shopping round out a day’s worth of delights.
Taste of Dallas will take place July 9-11 in Dallas’ own Fair Park. Parking is easy in Fair Park, with trams that run from the parking lot to the front door of the event, or visitors can be “green” and ride DART’s Green Line to Fair Park.
One bite of advice: Get your taste buds ready.
