A 'Taste-Y' Time in Roswell

A fun time at the Taste of Roswell - includes an updated list of games and list of restaurants.

Ladies and Gentlemen – Start Your Taste Buds!  It’s time for the yummiest fall event in Roswell - The Annual Taste of Roswell.

Come on down to the Historic Square, this Saturday, Oct. 20, noon – 5:30 p.m. for a great chance to enjoy a beautiful fall day while sampling food from Roswell’s favorite restaurants. Throw in a DJ playing great music and fun family-friendly contests and you have a great recipe for a fun afternoon.

If you’re not from “around here,” the Historic Roswell Square is located at the intersection of Marietta Highway (GA 120) and Atlanta Street (GA 9).

On this fine fall Saturday, Roswell eateries will be selling samples of some of the items on their menus on the square in downtown Roswell. Make the ticket tent your first stop to visit the smiling volunteers and purchase your food tickets for 50 cents each. Samples are one to six tickets (50 cents to $3 in value). I usually start with $5 worth of tickets, scope out the tents to see what each restaurant is selling, buy my samples and chow down. If I still have room left in my stomach, I figure out how many more tickets I need and purchase a few more and start the fun all over again.

After you’ve eaten your fill, make sure you stop back by the ticket tent and vote on your favorite restaurants. The friendly competition between restaurants includes: Friendliest, Best Decorated Booth, Favorite Food Item, and the coveted Best of Taste, which is determined by YOUR taste purchases.

While you’re digesting your food and deciding if you really need just one or two more desserts, grab a chair in front of the bandstand and enjoy the music and dance contests. In addition to the music from DJ Greg Talmadge, you and your family can participate in:

  • Hula Hoop Contest
  • Bean Bag Toss
  • Ring Toss
  • The Twist Dance Contest
  • Hokie Pokie
  • Electric Slide
  • Line Dancing

So stop reading, get out your calendar, and mark it down to be at the Historic Square in Roswell, this Saturday, Oct. 20 from noon – 5:30 pm to enjoy a enjoy a “Taste-Y” Time in Roswell!  See you there!

Intersting that only 3 restaurants from Canton St are participating. I would think that many would want to participate as a way of saying "thank you to the City for all the support we have shown them". Since they (collectively) seem to be the golden child of the city. Interesting to me to ask why or why not?
