Your guide to the 2019 Taste of Buffalo

The festival will return to downtown Buffalo Saturday and Sunday.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The final preparations are underway for the nation's largest two day food festival, which will set up on Delaware Avenue from Johnson Park, south to Niagara Square. 

This year, organizers are hoping to simplify the ordering process in two ways. First, tickets cost one dollar each. Second, there will be a uniform menu sign at each stand, making it clear to visitors what each restaurant is selling and how much each offering costs. 

Here are key details for the event: 

Where & When:

  • Saturday, July 13th from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Sunday, July 14th from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. 
  • Located along Delaware Avenue starting at Johnson Park, south to Niagara Square

Who's Coming: 

  • 56 restaurants and food trucks, as well as six local wineries 
  • "Rookie Row" will be back along Delaware Avenue between Chippewa and Johnson Park, and will feature this year's nine new participants: Buffalo Soul Catering, Cali Eats, The Chocolate Bar, Dalmatia Hotel, The Draft Room, Eli Fish Brewing Company, The Hilltop Restaurant & Bar, Rachel's Mediterranean Grill, and Sweet Life Dessert Experience. 

Tickets & Cost: 

  • Admission is free. Each food and drink sample costs between 1 and 5 tickets. 
  • Tickets will now cost $1 each, and will be sold in $5 sheets at three locations throughout the festival. They are also available at Tops locations ahead of time. Visa and Mastercard, as well as cash are accepted.
