The festival is divided into two parts: The Pavilion and the Tasting Tour. On day one, guests will pick up their Tasting Passports at The Gateway. and decide if they want to start the event by enjoying tastings, and the VIP section, at the pavilion or explore the downtown Tasting Tour. This year’s Pavilion will be at The Gateway next to the walkable and beautifully landscaped Olympic Fountain. Ticket holders will enjoy tastings from 20 exclusive restaurants and live music performed by Gold Standard and Lunar Soul.
2. The VIP Area
VIP ticket holders have access to an additional 12 restaurants inside the beautiful VIP building next to the fountain.VIP guests will also enjoy a private terrace and lounge area overlooking the festival, exclusive cocktails and private bathrooms.
3. The Tasting Tour
Many downtown restaurants participate in Tastemakers on their own premises. One of the most fun parts of Tastemakers is going from restaurant to restaurant to sample food and wine. Guests can use our convenient hop-on hop-off bus to take them on the downtown Tasting Tour. The bus starts at the Gateway and passes the participating restaurants every 15 minutes. Some of the restaurants include: Finca, Market Street Grill and Squatters. A complete list of all Tasting Tour restaurants can be found below.
All participating restaurants, food purveyors and breweries will serve signature samples such as: fine chocolate, crab cakes,tacos, craft beer,artisan cheese,olive oil on bruschetta, bolognaise and much more.
A portion of all proceeds will benefit Head Start Utah, a program that promotes school readiness for young children from low-income families.
