Nation's largest 2-day foodfest, Taste of Buffalo, staying big

The 34th annual Taste of Buffalo shows no signs of surrendering its status as the nation's largest two-day food festival. Organizers of the July 8-9 weekend event have just announced a lineup of 61 food and wine options, the most ever.

The Taste of Buffalo, presented by Tops markets on downtown's Niagara Square, has a volunteer force of more than 1,000 people prepping and running an event that usually attracts en estimated 450,000 visitors.

“Each restaurant will serve a 'healthy option' with fewer calories, less sodium and fat, as well as a smaller 'Taste' portion of their signature menu items," said event chairman Ralph Basile. "Our hope is that you can try more food at a variety of restaurants without filling up too fast.”

In addition to a lengthy lineup of returning vendors, there are 14 new restaurants and two new wineries on the list. Live music and other entertainment will be part of the festival. Full details on admission, reserved parking, event schedules and other details are available online.
