A Taste of Calgary is an outdoor food festival that is run in August every year. It is held at Eau Claire Festival Plaza.
The festival consists of a collaboration of restaurants that congregate together to provide samples of popular menu items for the public to enjoy. Each restaurant is set up as an exhibit underneath a portable canopy to protect their equipment from the elements.
Participating in A Taste Of Calgary requires the purchase of tickets. Two to six tickets are redeemed for a sample size menu item at one of the participating restaurants.
The festival includes an area where alcoholic beverages can be sampled. Woohoo! Beer!
The festival provides a unique experience for the visitor, allowing the visitor to sample many different cuisines and dishes in one stop. That is a good thing.
