50-off-taste-of-atlanta-2013-1266301-small_lvIf you missed out on the first set of discount tickets to Taste of Atlanta, you can still take advantage of a deal to get in on the cheap, no coupon code required.

The Taste of Atlanta will be in Midtown at Tech Square on October 26 & 27, 2013. At Taste of Atlanta, you can sample the specialties of 90+ Atlanta restaurants, get cooking tips & inspiration at four live cooking stages & the Family Fun Zone, & more.

General admission tickets are $30 in advance and $40 at the gate, and each admits one & comes with 10 Taste coupons. Kids 13 & under get in free when accompanied by a paid adult, but they’ll need their own Taste coupons to sample the wares. Extra Taste coupons can be purchased in groups of 10 for $10 or 20 for $20, and most menu items cost between 1-3 coupons each.

VIP tickets are $75 in advance & $85 at the gate, and each comes with 10 taste coupons + admission into the Wine + Beer + Cocktail Experience. And the first 300 VIP ticket holders each day receive a Taste of Atlanta gift bag filled with special goodies. You must be age 21+ to purchase VIP tickets.

To save: Taste of Atlanta is hosting pop up ticket sales on October 18, 2013. The first ten people at each location can take advantage of a buy-one-get-one-free ticket deal. After that, you’ll get $5 off the advance ticket price. Taste of Atlanta will be at Gordon Biersch (848 Peachtree St NE) from 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. & Ri Ra Irish Pub (1080 Peachtree St NE) from 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.

Bonus: Anyone that stops by Ri Ra for a ticket will receive a $10 lunch or dinner at Ri Ra.

Taste of Atlanta takes place at Tech Square in Midtown Atlanta, located at 5th & Spring Streets. It’s a short walk from the North Avenue MARTA station. But if you drive, here are a couple of tips: When we go to Taste of Atlanta on Sundays, we park on the street since street parking is free on Sundays. Should you need a parking deck, check the one right by the festival on 4th & Spring St.; in the past, it’s offered a discounted rate for Taste of Atlanta attendees.
