So much food, so little time!

Join us Friday through Saturday, August 9 to 11 and choose from 35 food vendors at A Taste of Edmonds. The variety is better than ever and it is all prepared fresh at the festival.


Fresh roasted corn on the cob
is just one of the many yummy
offerings at A Taste of Edmonds.

This year the Taste welcomes Celtic Cowboy BBQ who will be serving “Love Me Tender Baby Back Ribs.” Known for their original BBQ sauce, Celtic has really embraced the Elvis theme of this year’s Taste. So has Rusty Pelican with their “Hunka Hunka Key Lime Pie.” Visitors will also be able to buy tasty treats from Family Time Restaurant, Lopez Island Ice Cream, Moe’s Falafel, and Panda Dim Sum for the first time at the festival. Truly Med is taking a second booth this year and is introducing fish on their menu.

You can wash it all down with some “Blue Suede Lemonade,” or head over to the beer garden with your feast, where you can also catch a great act on the beer garden stage. Wine enthusiasts will find that this year’s Taste fare has been paired with the wines being offered in the Wine Garden.

As always, festival organizers will have the Taste-Off competition, Friday, August 9 at noon to determine the best main dish, side dish and desert at the event. This year’s judges will consist of the Friends of the Wine Garden. Look for the banners at the winner’s tents.

It is rumored that Elvis loved a good peanut butter and banana sandwich. We would venture a guess that he would get all shook up over many of the great eats at A Taste.
