If you like some AM radio classics with your food, then be sure to put the 18th annual Taste of Atlanta on your menu Oct. 18-20. This year, Atlanta’s own Yacht Rock Revue will give a concert on Saturday at Historic Fourth Ward Park.
Concert goers will dance the night away to the smooth-sailing sounds of the ‘70s and ‘80s – think Hall & Oates, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald and Toto – and a few Halloween tunes, too. Costumes are encouraged and there will be food trucks if you get hungry (no outside food or beverage is allowed).
But before the music starts, there’s a whole weekend of food, beer and wine to enjoy at the park, as well.
More than 100 of Atlanta’s favorite restaurants will show off their most famous dishes alongside live on-stage cooking demos from top chefs, hands-on cooking classes, a Friday Night Opening Party, a Saturday night concert and more.
Festival hours are 7:30 to 11 p.m. for the Opening Night Party, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Gates open for the concert at 7 p.m.
Individual tickets to Friday’s all-inclusive Opening Night Party are $75 in advance and $85 at the door. General Admission tickets for the weekend’s main tasting events include 10 Taste Points and cost $30 in advance and $40 at the door. VIP Experience tickets cost $80 in advance and $90 at the door and also include 10 taste points to use in the General Admission area. Tickets for Yacht Rock Revue are $40 general admission and $75 for VIP.
