Tastemakers is a two-night dining event that showcases the best of Utah’s food and wine. This year’s event is on Thursday, June 2 and Friday, June 3 from 5:00 – 10:00 p.m. each night at the Gallivan Center. Tickets are only $30 for a general tasting pass and $85 for VIP access, which includes exclusive tasting and five drinks.
Here’s some tips from the Salt Lake Magazine staff on how to get the most out of Tastemakers:
Take your time:
Guests can sample dishes from 25+ restaurants. That’s a lot of food that you don’t want to miss out on. Make sure you allot plenty of time on both nights to really enjoy your experience.
Hitch a ride:
Tastemakers provides a variety of ways to get around. Take a Greenbike, a bike taxi, or catch an Uber ride after a few drinks.
Get out of a rut:
The Stroll Restaurants at Tastemakers are the perfect excuse to break out of the age-old culinary question of “Where should we eat tonight?” These tastings allow Tastemakers guests to visit downtown restaurants and get acquainted with each place’s menu and atmosphere. Enjoy the Stroll and add some downtown restaurants to your dining choices.
Use the buddy system:
Tastemakers is the perfect event for groups of friends or a unique date. Grab your BFFs or your significant other to get a taste of Utah’s best food and drink. At only $30, the Tastemakers general ticket price is a steal to have a two-day premier culinary experience with friends and dates.
