In one weekend, Taste of Atlanta brings together the incredible energy and diversity of the city’s food scene. From the hot new restaurants to down home favorites, from ethnic eateries to small gems that are off the beaten path – if it’s great food, you’ll find it at Taste of Atlanta!

The 11th annual Taste of Atlanta returns to Tech Square in Midtown at Spring and 5th Street with over 80 confirmed restaurants and some of the best Chefs on Saturday, October 6th  and Sunday, October 7th.  Volunteers are the key to making this event a success. We are seeking qualified and enthusiastic volunteers to serve as Ambassadors for Taste of Atlanta 2012.

Ambassador opportunities include: Restaurant Runners, Ticketing, and Floaters to name a few. Ambassadors are needed on Saturday, October 6th and Sunday, October 7th at various times (4 hour shifts).

Each Ambassador should be able to commit to a four hour shift and attend an Ambassador Information Meeting on September 13, 2012 from 6:30 – 7:30 pm at the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center in Midtown (Spring & 5th Street).
