Tickets will be on sale Summer 2018!
Taste of Atlanta is a cashless festival with state of the art RFID technology that makes it easier and faster for attendees to enter the festival and make purchases—all with just the tap of a wristband! Attendees will pay for their bites, brews and other merchandise by activating their wristbands and loading additional "Taste Points" online in advance or at select Taste Point Top Up stations located at the festival.
General Admission tickets include 10 Taste Points.
Grand Tasting Experience tickets (formerly the VIP Experience) include 20 Taste Points.
Note: restaurants in the Grand Tasting Experience will require Taste Points for their tastes.
The first 300 Saturday Grand Tasting Experience and the first 300 Sunday Grand Tasting Experience ticket buyers will receive an exclusive gift bag at the festival. (We have reached the 300 Saturday Grand Tasting Ticket limit for gift bags.)
All festival attendees must wear a wristband at all times. Guests who purchase in advance must activate their wristband prior to the event. Activating in advance also allows buyers to Top Up their Taste Points prior to entering the festival.

Why RFID wristbands?
Taste of Atlanta festivalgoers will benefit from a totally streamlined and enhanced experience with the RFID wristband. Making for speedier entry, purchases for food, drink and merchandise with a simple tap of their RFID wristbands enable guests to spend more time enjoying all the mouth-watering festivities and less time standing in line.
Registered attendees will receive an email after the festival with a record of all the restaurants and sponsors they visited. This may also be viewed on your online account page.
What is the benefit of purchasing tickets early and activating my RFID wristband?
Buying tickets early, activating wristbands online and loading more Taste Points beforehand provides hungry guests with enhanced benefits at the festival – from reduced wait times to improved customer service in case of lost or damaged wristbands.
Where do I get a wristband?
