Loans By Kathy: Taste of Marietta, April 29th

Taste of Marietta, April 29th

Many large cities and even smaller towns have long been sponsoring events called "Taste of XXXXXXX".  In fact the first event I attended was Taste of Chicago at Navy Pier.  It was a great day of fun to enjoy the city, food, music.  If you live in the Atlanta area  you will want to mark your calendar now for the Taste of Marietta on April 29th.

The event is held in historic downtown Marietta at Glover Park.  The price is right as their is no admission charge for the event and tastes will range from $.50 to $4.50.  This year's event will showcase 80 local restaurants. Here is the other information you will need to know before the event.:


The 2012 Taste of Marietta takes place on Sunday, April 29 from 11am to 7pm.  

There are five live music stages and a sunset concert on the Main Stage in Glover Park. The event also features games for the kids in the Kid’s Alley, a sports corner as well as a cooking stage with celebrity cheifs’ cooking demonstrations. The Taste of Marietta takes place rain or shine, and admission is free.

Also, don’t forget to bring some canned goods to help feed the hungry in Marietta. MUST Ministries is having a food drive with a drop off booth to help stock their food pantry.

Date and Time:

Sunday, April 29, 2012 from 11am to 7pm.


Admission to the event is free, tastes range from $0.50 to $4.50 each. Unlike other festivals, tickets are not required and it is a cash-based festival. ATM machines are available. Inflatables/moonwalks in the kids corner are also available for a fee.
