"Taste Points" (TP) are the official currency of Taste of Atlanta. When you purchase your ticket, you will receive a wristband in the mail that is pre-loaded with 10 Taste Points for both Main Festival General Admission and VIP as part of your ticket package. Food tastes cost 1, 2 or 3 Taste Points and beverages start at $3. One Taste Point = $1. Additional TPs are sold for $1 each and can be added to your wristband in advance or at the festival's TP Banks.
Leftover Taste Points can be donated to Giving Kitchen or you may request a refund. Refunds are allowed for the EXTRA taste points you purchase, NOT for the initial 10 points that come on the wristband.
Register and activate your wristband before you arrive or at Taste Point Banks at the festival. Once you have registered, prizes will be randomly rewarded to attendees. After the festival you will receive a customized email reminding you of everything you ate, what restaurant it came from, and special offers and discounts. Detailed information about your wristband, including how to activate, may be found here.
