Taste of Dallas 2012 provides a weekend of Family Foodie Fun!

Prepare your palate for three days of food, music, art and much more as the 26th Annual Taste of Dallas returns July 13 - July 15 to Fair Park in Dallas. Housed in a 150,000 square foot indoor and air conditioned area, the Taste of Dallas remains DFW’s largest tasting event and will host activities for the entire family.

Enjoy culinary demonstrations from Dallas’ top chefs, a culinary marketplace featuring specialty food items, and a Kids’ Taste Town which includes an interactive petting zoo, kids cooking demos and much more!

Families can sample food from over 60 Dallas restaurants as well as several food trucks, in an all-new feature called Taste Curbside. In addition to food and drinks, Taste of Dallas will offer visitors a taste of the local art and music scene. Guests have the chance to listen to live music at the Taste Music Stage and view new and emerging artists at the Artist and Crafter’s Enclave.

One day admission tickets can be bought at the gate for $8, while children 12 and under get in free with an accompanying parent or guardian. Advanced tickets can be bought at Kroger for $5.

Just for pint-sized foodies, Kids’ Taste Town is an interactive food-themed experience for children of all ages. With more than 70,000 sq. ft., every kid will relish in the wall-to-wall fun of carnival rides, demonstrations, games and activities that can only be found at Taste of Dallas. But that’s not all is the not-to-be-missed The Sweet Factory - a place to eat, taste and experience tasty treats and perhaps learn a little something too!

To sweeten the pot, Taste of Dallas has created a special promotion for families on Friday, July 13 with Family Fun Night! Kids can bring their parents and get them in for free with a true family-centric event in air-conditioning... But it's not just about the food!
