Get ready for the largest Taste of Calgary yet with paper-free Taste Passes, a larger event space, an opening ceremony, more food and international offerings, a foodie marketplace, and an extra day!

For 26 years, Taste of Calgary has been one of Calgary’s most sought-after food and beverage events hitting the top of everyone’s bucket list in the summer. This culinary street festival aims to bring a unique food experience to the streets of Calgary, while adding to its vibrant summer culture and festival scene. For five days, eventgoers of all ages have the opportunity to try bite-size offerings from a wide variety of Calgary’s top restaurants, food trucks, breweries, and distilleries, while listening to live music from local bands and musicians… all weekend long!

“As always, we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate the vibrant and diverse culinary scene that Calgary is known and loved for,” says Jennifer Rempel, Taste of Calgary Event Producer. “Adding an extra date and a larger event space has allowed us to curate a greater number of talented local restaurants, food trucks, breweries, and distilleries participating in this year’s event. With an even greater lineup of International and specialty dishes, we can’t wait to showcase the exceptional culinary talent and creativity that Calgary has to offer, and we invite everyone to join us for a grand celebration of flavours, culture, and community.”

For the very first time, Taste of Calgary is going paperless with the introduction of the Taste Pass and the ability to purchase taste tickets directly from vendors. Eventgoers can choose to pre-purchase their Taste Pass online until Wednesday, August 2 at 5 p.m. and receive VIP entry to skip the line at the festival and receive a complimentary Taste of Calgary tote (while supplies last). After August 2, Tasters can choose to simply purchase their Taste samples with Credit Card or Debit Card directly from each vendor. Admission to the event is free and pricing will remain the same as in previous years, $1 per digital Taste Ticket loaded on your Taste Pass — each dish will range between 2 to 7 tickets.
