Taste of Times Square, the long-running outdoor food festival, will be returning to the city early next month.
On Monday, June 3, taste dishes from neighborhood restaurants serving up flavors from around the world, as well as music and dancing from NYC performers at Taste of Times Square. The annual festival prides itself on bringing together food and music in one central space to give New Yorkers and visitors alike a taste of global cuisines and diverse cultures you’ll find in this city.
Anyone interested in attending the festival can technically do so for free, but you’ll need tickets to do any actual tasting, and you’ll want to get them soon to avoid lines the day-of. Each “Taste Ticket” is $1 and since any given dish can range from 2-6 tickets, Taste of Times Square is selling Taste Tickets by increments of 10 with the option to purchase as many as 50 tickets at once.
Expect to be blown away by an array of flavors, sounds, and cultural activities at this family-friendly evening experience. Some popular vendors from the city that will be representing cuisines from all over the world include:
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
Burger & Lobster
Fashion Bar & Restaurant
Hard Rock Cafe
Hold Fast Kitchen & Spirits
House of Brews
Wafels & Dinges
Dim Sum Palace
Buca di Beppo
Sake Bar Hagi 46
The festival will take place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on 46th Street, between Broadway and Ninth Avenue. Be sure to grab your Taste Tickets here before heading out to avoid the lines!
