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 13th 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 25th and Sunday, October 26th.  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 2014.
