This Georgetown Festival Is Guaranteed to Leave a Good Taste in Your Mouth

Oh, the tastes keep coming at

Last week, it was the Taste of DC. This week, it’s the Taste of Georgetown.

On Saturday, October 15, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., come out and celebrate the 18th Annual Taste of Georgetown at Wisconsin Avenue in Northwest, south of M Street. Nowhere near as large as the Taste of DC, this one is a cozier affair, and these are usually more fun. Says me, anyway.

Thirty area restaurants will be on hand “highlighting Georgetown’s culinary personalities” while featuring “nearly sixty delectable dishes to sample.” Wine and beer, can’t forget that, nor what many people will come out to see: music.

Performing at this year’s event on the Georgetown University Taste of Music Stage will be the Michael Bowie Trio, Jacques Johnson and Friends, the Sandra Y. Johnson Quintet and the Blues Alley Youth Orchestra.

Participating restaurants will include Dean & DeLuca, Café Bonaparte, Clyde’s, Ristorante Piccolo and Georgetown Wing Co. The festival will even let punters like you and me in on some of the recipes you may wind up sampling on the 15th.

You’ll get to drink your fill as well in the Washington City Paper Pavilion, which opens at noon. Among those peddling the demon alcohol will be Potomac Wines and Spirits, Boston Beer Company and Anchor Brewery Company.

The festival benefits the Georgetown Ministry Center, a homeless shelter/advocacy organization founded in 1987. Sponsors include Martens Volkswagen, Washingtonian Magazine and Bank of Georgetown. Here’s a list of the festival’s community partners.
