Taste of SoFu is a celebration of all art forms. We rotate to different art centers, parks and venues within the South Fulton County Area. This gives attendees a unique oppor- tunity to explore and get to know different parts of the county. It also gives different cities a way to showcase their offerings. Each event provides an array of talent in the performing, culinary and visual arts. Something for everyone's TASTE.

Art doesn ’ t have to be displayed solely on a wall. Experience a variety of flavors, cultures and themed food including soul- food, desserts, seafood, barbeque, vegan meals and more. In addition, we spotlight a local restaurant and introduce new cuisine to attendees. This helps to rev up the economy within the community.

Each week expect to treat your palate to a new TASTE.

There ’ s nothing better than live entertainment. Local up - and - coming Acts take center stage and the DJ plays some of your favorite music. The lawn chairs come out, and everyone enjoys first class acts and performances. Dance battles, costume contest, tribute to SoFu Leg- ends, celebrity guest and The City Taste Off all add another dimension of fun to TASTE.
