Taste of Roswell - October 17, noon - 5:30 pm

The annual Taste of Roswell is a great chance to enjoy a beautiful fall day while sampling yummy food from Roswell’s favorite restaurants. Throw in a radio station playing oldies and live music from local favorites and you have a great recipe for a fun afternoon.

On Saturday, October 17th from noon to 5:30 pm, over 25 Roswell eateries will be selling samples of some of the items on their menus on the square in downtown Roswell. Make the ticket tent your first stop to visit the smiling volunteers and purchase your food tickets for 50 cents each. Samples are one to six tickets (50 cents to $3 in value). I usually start with $5 worth of tickets, scope out the tents to see what each restaurant is selling, buy my samples and chow down. If I still have room left in my stomach (sometimes the “tastes” are so large that I’m already full), I figure out how many more tickets I need and purchase a few more and start the fun all over again.

After you’ve eaten your fill, make sure you stop back by the ticket tent and vote on your favorite restaurants. One restaurant has won the “best food” category each year so you know that the others will be vying to stop the winning streak. I’d tell you which restaurant this is, but that would spoil the fun!

While you’re digesting your food and deciding if you really need just one or two more “tastes,” grab a chair in front of the bandstand and enjoy the entertainment. In addition to the DJ spinning oldies from 106.7 Atlanta’s True Oldies Radio Station, the following will be performing:

The Reminiscents is a girl group that covers the music of the late 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s. Members have varied resumes, including degrees in Vocal Performance, experience in theatre arts, and dance. They entertain with music that will have audiences singing along and remembering earlier decades. A fun and delightful episode.

Barry Etris is a singer/songwriter recognized internationally as well as popular with Roswell audiences. He has been published by some of the nation’s leading publishers and his most famous song, Reuben James, has sold in excess of thirty million copies world-wide. Audiences enjoy his unassuming style as he leads them on a path of remembering some of their favorites from years gone by.

Adam Komesar is a professional vocalist who enthralls audiences with his one-man tribute to “old Blue Eyes,” Frank Sinatra. In addition to recreating the Sinatra sound and style, he often tells the story behind the songs.

  1. That was the first Taste of Roswell we've missed in 6 years. It was just to cold and rainy.
