The Taste of St. Augustine and the Race to the Taste have been postponed to the evening of Tuesday, May 30, 2023. This is the first time in 25 years the event has been postponed due to the weather.
The annual outdoor food festival featuring "tastes" from participating St. Augustine restaurants, A Taste of St. Augustine will be held from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m., on Tuesday, May 30, 2023, at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.
Live performances will feature music by Chillula and The Space Heaters. In addition, there are plenty of fun arts and crafts activities for children. EPIC Behavioral Healthcare produces the event annually, and all proceeds go to this community-based non-profit organization.
This event has grown to be one of the city's premier annual offerings. Visitors can sample delicious foods from over 20 local restaurants and can vote for the coveted "People's Choice" award. A team of food service professionals determines the winners in the categories of Best Family, Best Ethnic, Best Upscale, Best Dessert, and Best Beverage.
Vacationers and locals can taste the day away at this fun, family-friendly outdoor festival. A special Race to the Taste 5K will raise money for Epic and give runners free access to the festival with their registration.
