To safely control crowd size, for one year only, the Taste of Buffalo will be a ticketed event, with four, four-hour sessions throughout the weekend. Guests must purchase admission tickets in advance for any session they plan to attend as they will not be sold at the event. The four sessions include:
Saturday, July 10, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Tickets for the Tops Markets Session are only available at Tops through the store registers. This ticket is $20 and includes $15 in food tickets (a $5 bonus).
Saturday, July 10, 4:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., Sunday, July 11, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and Sunday, July 11, 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Tickets for these three sessions can be purchased online via tasteofbuffalo.com. Tickets are $20 each and includes $10 in food tickets.
Tickets for all four sessions are on sale now. Children three and under are free.
Admission tickets will direct guests to enter at one of three gates. Gate A is at Delaware and Huron, Gate B is at Court and Franklin and Gate C is at Delaware and West Eagle. Gates will open for admission 30 minutes prior to the start of each session.
Guests will receive their food tickets when redeeming their admission ticket at the gate. Additional food tickets may be purchased at the ticket tents inside the festival. Cash, Visa, and Mastercard are accepted. Tickets at the festival will be sold in $5 increments.
