Taste of Calgary, the city's most appetizing outdoor festival of food and drinks is back for its 20th year @ Eau Claire's festival plaza (Barclay Parade and 3 Street SW)  August 10-13, 2017. This year’s blend of international cuisines will treat your taste buds to flavors from African, East Indian, Italian, Asian and and others; all represented by over forty of the Calgary’s most unique restaurants and beverage companies.

Come down and try our sample-sized menu items that are perfect for a bite-size taste of Calgary’s great cuisine and most unique beverages.  Buy Taste sampling tickets for $1.00 each right at the event and use them to pay for any of the food or beverage menu items at the festival.  Admission to the festival is free and includes a taste of Calgary’s incredible local entertainers - live on the Main Stage.

What in the world are you going to eat tonight?  Sample something new, like . . . Filipino Pork Adobo, Pappri Chat, Kimchi Fried Rice, and Nigerian Suya. Or, if you’re looking for something more familiar, there’s plenty to choose from like the hand-pinched Heritage Perogies, Butter Chicken, Steak Bites with Ginger Sauce, and Sterling Silver Braised Short Ribs. And, wash it all down with sample size sippers that include one of over 30 craft beers, White Owl Whisky Ginger Lime Crushies, or a Mexican Bulldog.
