It’s billed as the largest two-day food festival in the U.S., and the 31st annual Taste of Buffalo takes over Delaware Ave. from Niagara Square to Chippewa St. on Saturday and Sunday, July 12th and 13th. The festival attracts more than 450,000 visitors annually and features more than 60 of the area’s top restaurants.

Each participating restaurant will feature “taste-sized” portions of some of their signature dishes for between two and eight tickets (tickets are 50 cents each). A new feature this year: the lawn-fete-style Beer Tent, open Saturday until 11 p.m.

Among the new restaurants participating this year are Bambino Bar and Kitchen, BOSS, Ebenezer Ale House, J.D. Smokin Grill N Bar - Authentic BBQ, The Lodge, Martino's Meeting Place, Osteria 166, Panaro's Restaurant, Paula's Donuts, Snooty Fox, Spices of India, Sun Restaurant and The Village Inn. There are also seven wineries scheduled to participate this year, as well as a number of area food trucks.

The Taste of Buffalo also features two stages for music throughout the weekend, including artists like West of the Mark, Hit n Run, Cock Robin, the Dave Constantino Band and the Strangers; there is also a Culinary Stage in the New Era Cap parking lot, with demonstrations and contests throughout the weekend.

Pre-sale food ticket vouchers ($10 each) can be purchase through July 13th at area Top Markets; certificates are redeemable at any ticket booth during the Taste of Buffalo. For a complete list of restaurants and what they’re serving, visit
