Taste of Winchester Food and Drink Festival FAQ’s

Have questions? Here are few answers, please contact us if something is not covered!

Where does the food festival take place?

Restaurants all over the city will be participating! The majority are located on or near the Old Town walking mall, but many are located in the county. The event happens over 5 hrs so you have enough time to visit any participating businesses.

Where do I pick up tickets?

Ticket preorders and day of sales will be picked up in the PrimeLending building on the Old Town Walking Mall at the north end. It is the corner old bank building at Loudoun and Piccadilly directly across the walking mall from the old Book Gallery location. You will see signs!

How will the festival work?

You choose a ticket package, each ticket will be used for ONE tasting. On the day of the festival you choose which restaurants you want to visit, hand over a ticket for one of the tastings offered, and enjoy!

The majority of the restaurants are in Old Town, but you can drive to the others participating or take the Trolley to some select stops.

Why are you not setting up tents in one area for the event?

There are two main reasons, the first is that most of our business owners work in their restaurant, winery, brewery, etc and simply don’t have the staff to be able to participate in a different location while running their business as normal. The second is that our businesses are all so unique that we really want you to experience their location first hand. This is a great chance to try places that you haven’t been to before and we want you to have a fuller experience than standing in a crowded tent.

Do I need a ticket package for each person coming?

Yes, each person that purchases a tasting package will receive a wristband, tasting passport and tickets. In order to receive a tasting at participating locations you will need to show your wristband and submit a ticket.
