Taste of Dallas Cooler than Ever in 2015

North Texas's largest tasting event moves to June, adds BBQ cooking competition and high-end tasting experience

DALLAS--()--Back by popular foodie demand is North Texas's largest event dedicated to all things food -- and this time, it's even cooler. Taste of Dallas presented by Ford, June 12-14th, will satisfy the thousands of hungry tasters who love to stroll Dallas's Fair Park and taste from restaurants all over North Texas.

"The foodies demanded it, and we delivered," said Billy McEntee, owner of Taste of Dallas. “This year, the tastings will be hotter than the weather, and sure to spice up an already fun-filled weekend at Taste of Dallas."

Taste of Dallas is home to some of the best brisket, ribs, and chicken BBQ in the region. In true Taste of Dallas style, the event's participating BBQ pitmasters will battle it out in the $25,000 BBQ Battle Royale to see who is the king of the BBQ ring. You won't want to miss this.

Also new for this year is a high-end tasting experience within Taste of Dallas, Taste the Difference, which celebrates the art of the meal. A separately ticketed event for 21 and up, this fantastic foodie experience produced by culinarian Scott Jones is a four-hour culinary tour for your tastebuds. Complete with wine, beer and spirits tastings, chef demonstrations and mixology madness, this is an experience to remember and one that will benefit several worthwhile charities, including the American Heart Association.

The heart of Taste of Dallas is the food. Restaurants on the Esplanade will feature tastings from their menu for only $1-$4. There is no better way than Taste of Dallas to taste cuisine from more than 50 of Dallas’s best restaurants: with no entrée more than $4, participants have the opportunity to savor plenty of different tastes without breaking the bank.

Taste of Dallas supports the work of the American Heart Association, Taste of Dallas’s official non-profit partner. American Heart Association will offer free screenings, family-friendly entertainment, and heart-healthy education at the event.
