Grand Tasting Experience

Haven't you always wanted VIP access? Now is your chance at Atlanta's must-do festival. Sip and savor what some of Atlanta's best restaurants, chefs and bartenders have to offer. Sample more than 100 of the best craft beers, along with an amazing selection of wine from around the world and bites from restaurants not found in the main festival. Thirsty for more? The city's hottest bartenders will be shaking and mixing craft cocktails under the Grand Tasting Experience tents.

Grand Tasting Experience tickets include 20 Taste Points pre-loaded onto your wristband! Grand Tasting Experience restaurants will charge 1, 2 or 3 Taste Points for their tastes.

Also new this year, the first 300 Grand Tasting Experience ticket-buyers will receive a gift bag filled with savory and sweet samples and goodies from our sponsors. That's 300 bags for Saturday ticket-buyers and 300 bags for Sunday ticket-buyers. Buy early and reap the rewards!

The entrace to the Grand Tasting Experience is at Garden Park Drive and Ralph McGill.

The Pak

On the Grand Tasting Music Stage Saturday

The Pak is a trio of seasoned musicians performing your favorite tunes from the 80s including Bon Jovi, Prince, Bryan Adams, INXS, Poison, Run DMC, Tone Loc, Billy Idol, etc. Heath Slaton (lead vocals and bass guitar) and Hastin Slaton (drums) are brothers who have been playing music together since the age of 10 years old. Their decades of playing music together help to create the undeniable groove that is one of the signature elements of the band. Bill Trippe (Lead Guitar) is the guitar god that defines the melodic structure that gives The Pak the 80s feel that makes them one of the top 80s cover bands in the Southeast. Whether it is 80s hair band, 80s pop, or 80s rap, The Pak will deliver the goods to your satisfaction.
