This destination event will showcase the diverse food, culture and entertainment in Downtown Crossing. Please join us on Avenue de Lafayette as it is transformed into a lovely streetside cafe. The afternoon will feature the sounds of local musicians, a wine and beer garden, culinary demonstrations and food tastings from over 20 local restaurants offering their distinctive cuisines. The inaugural Taste of Downtown Crossing is a celebration of the neighborhood that has quickly become one of the hottest and trendiest spots in Boston.
Tickets to the festival are only $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Once inside the gated event attendees will be able to sample offerings from all of the restaurants. Gordon’s Fine Wines & Liquors will be selling craft brews and wines that will complement the varied cuisines. Wine and beer is not included in the entrance fee.
Food samples will be available throughout the entirety of the event. There will also be 30-minute chef demonstrations and musical performances throughout the event.
