The Taste of Tacoma® has delivered free family fun to the citizens of Tacoma for over three decades! The Taste was started in 1986 by Festivals Inc. CFO and local restaurateur, Alan Silverman after the Tacoma Restaurant Association requested he create an event for the Tacoma community just as he had done with the Bite of Seattle®, which he launched successfully in 1982. A restaurateur himself, Al (as he is called), was dedicated to creating "the ultimate family picnic." The principals in which he created the event 30 years ago still holds true today; promote the local food, beverage, and restaurant industry while offering the public a chance to taste a wide variety of foods at affordable prices - all of this in a magnificent setting like beautiful Point Defiance Park.
