Taste of Bethesda returns on Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 11am-4pm and will bring more than 50 restaurants and five stages of entertainment to Bethesda’s Woodmont Triangle. Produced by the Bethesda Urban Partnership, downtown Bethesda's famous food and music festival celebrates 24 years of diverse and delectable cuisine offered by Bethesda's local restaurant community. Five stages showcase musical and cultural performances, and a children’s area featuring art and craft activities, balloons and face painting will provide additional entertainment for young visitors. More than 35,000 attendees enjoy Taste of Bethesda each year.  Closest Metro is Bethesda.

"Taste of Bethesda is the most exciting and delicious day in downtown Bethesda," said Dave Dabney, Executive Director of the Bethesda Urban Partnership. "We've been celebrating downtown Bethesda's eateries for nearly 25 years and are thrilled at the continuous support and patronage of our restaurants from the local community."
