The Taste of Buffalo presented by Tops will look different this year than previous years. The 38th annual Taste of Buffalo will take place on Saturday, July 10, and Sunday, July 11, 2021, in Niagara Square and Delaware Avenue in downtown Buffalo.

Tickets for the largest two-day food festival in the United States will go on sale this Friday, June 11. The admission tickets, which include food and drink tickets, will cost $20 each. You will need to buy the tickets ahead of time, as no tickets will be sold onsite. Admission tickets will allow you to enjoy a specific session. This change is for one year only, in order to keep you and your family safe.

Tops Friendly Markets will have a special session from 11 am to 3 pm on Saturday. Admission tickets for the Tops session are $20, which includes $15 in food and drink tickets, which is a $5 bonus. You can buy tickets for the Tops session at the register at Tops stores.
