This annual event in Detroit's New Center is an excellent opportunity to sample the wares of the area's incredibly diverse cuisines. Dozens of restaurants offering a wide variety of ethnic and American foods have booths at this five-day arts and cultural fair. It is held on the July 4 weekend each year, and the smörgåsbord of food is complemented by live entertainment on several stages, a children's area and the 2nd AVE Street Market with shopping for everyone. General admission is free. Taste tickets are USD5 for nine tickets.
This was the third year my husband and I have gone down to the tastefest. The drive is easy, parking is inexpensive and available and the atmosphere is one of unity. The food and music is plentiful and displays the wonderful diversity that makes our city so great. My husband and I will continue to make this an annual event and recommend to anyone who has thought about going to not let another year go by..you will be missing out on a spectacular function that is fun, safe, inexpensive and delicious!
Loved all the food vendors, they really showed off Detroit's culinary diversity. There are awesome dishes to try and the servers were all great. Not to mention the aromas! It was great!
The musical performances were really good. Great local talent and a couple of big names. The jazz acts were the best.
Merchandise vendors were cool, wish they had more less expensive items. They also had cool activity centers for kids and families.
Only thing that needed improving was they needed more shady areas to rest in. But overall, everything was easy to find and tasted great! Am definitely going back next time!
Great food, Great music and fun! what else could you ask for? I came to the taste fest in 2005 and loved it. They had great bands playing and the food was great! They had something for everyone. I will be coming back in 2006!
I enjoyed the tastefest sampling different foods, taking with people, the entertainment enjoying the day it was nice and sunny. We didn't have to walk far from the area. Looking at art work, clothing, items that the vendors were selling.I don't have any dislike about the tastefest because I enjoyed the food .
The taste fest is truly a taste test of the best Detroit has to offer in traditional and not so traditional food eateries in the metro area. Loved the sweet potato sensations. The festival leaves you wanting more, more and more.
Not only do you get to sample offerings from some of the best casual and casual fine dining restaurants around town but every year there is something new to do or see. There is always good music from many local artists and a few national acts and some other attraction, whether that be a half-pipe or an art exhibit it's always something intriguing.
