What is Taste of Atlanta?

How does the Taste Point system work?

"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.

What if I didn't spend all my Taste Points?

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.

  1. To be eligible for a refund please register your wristband at and link the RFID wristband for which you are requesting a refund.
  2. All refunds are subject to a $4.00 refund processing fee.
  3. Refunds can be requested within 14 days of the end of the festival by clicking the refund button found on your profile page.
  4. The refund request deadline is 11:59pm on Sunday, November 3rd, 2019.
