Get ready! Taste of DC will take you on a culinary adventure and that will awaken your taste buds, introduce you to new noshes, and transport you to with unique cultural experiences!

Restaurant Row features more than 65 of DC’s finest eateries.  Explore tastings from each restaurant and learn more about some of the region's most beloved dining experiences. Each restaurant will feature at least one tasting item priced between 1-3 Taste Tokens, in addition to select menu favorites available for 8 Taste Tokens or less.

Taste of DC is going cashless for food & beverages this year! RFID technology makes it easier and faster for attendees to enter Taste of DC and purchase food and drinks—with just the touch of a wristband! Instead of using cash or credit cards, you will pay for your food and drinks by activating your “Tasteband” and loading additional “Taste Tokens” onto your Tasteband online in advance or at select Tasteband stations located throughout the festival.
