· Grill Dome  - With demonstrations throughout the day, local grill-masters can watch as chefs cook up their specialties on these amazing ceramic grills.

· The Kitchen Workshop – Hosted by Mara Davis, The Kitchen Workshop is a hands-on cooking experience offering patrons a unique and enriching opportunity to learn how to create delicious dishes in their own kitchen.

“We are so proud to serve the city in this capacity and to show the world the amazing restaurants and chefs that help define Atlanta,” Taste of Atlanta founder Dale DeSena said in a statement. “We can’t wait to transform Tech Square into foodie heaven once again this year!”

General admission tickets are $25 in advance; $35 at the gate, and come with 10 taste tickets. Kids ages 13 and under get in free but will need a taste ticket to sample the eats.

Many years ago I volunteered at Taste of Atlanta events through my employer Bellsouth and the Telephone Pioneers. We all enjoyed the event soo much we would compete to see who would sign up to volunteer first. Since that time, I have supported the Taste and each year it gets bigger and better.

Winning the tickets would make my day and bring back old memories!!

Thank you in advance for continuing this spectacular event for all to enjoy!
