What are "Taste Points?"

"Taste Points" are the official currency at Taste of Atlanta.

1 Taste Point = $1.00

When you purchase your ticket, you will receive a wristband in the mail that is pre-loaded with 10 Taste Points as part of your ticket package.

Why RFID wristbands?

Taste of Atlanta festivalgoers will benefit from a totally streamlined and enhanced experience with the RFID wristband. Making for speedier entry, purchases for food, drink and merchandise with a simple tap of their RFID wristbands enable guests to spend more time enjoying all the mouth-watering festivities and less time standing in line.

Registered attendees will receive an email after the festival with a record of all the restaurants and sponsors they visited. The patron's transaction history can also be accessed on their registered online account page.

What is the benefit of purchasing tickets early and registering my RFID wristband?

Buying tickets early, registering wristbands online and loading more Taste Points beforehand provide hungry guests with enhanced benefits at the festival – from reduced wait times to improved customer service in case of lost or damaged wristbands.

Where do I get a wristband?

When you purchase your ticket prior to October 1, your wristband(s) will be mailed to the address you provided. If purchased after October 1, you have the option to pick up your wristband on October 19, 20 or 21 at our Early Will Call Tent located at West Peachtree and 5th Street from Noon until 6pm. We’ll provide all the information you need to register and Top Up your wristband in advance.

How do I purchase more "Taste Points" and pre-load credits into my account?

Want more points for more tastes and beverages? No problem! It will be easy to pre-load or "top-up" your wristband online, on your smartphone at any time, or at one of our many Taste Point Top Up stations located inside the festival. Save yourself time and top-up your wristband online before the event!

What if I didn't spend all my Taste Points? Can I get a refund?

All credit left unredeemed by October 23, 2016 at 7:00pm EST will be refunded in accordance with the terms below

  1. Credit Card: Leftover funds on your account purchased online or on-site at the event using a credit card will automatically be refunded back to your card (less a $4.50 refund processing fee) within 10 business days following the end of the event.
