This event was a waste of time and money. Even though we paid for the Groupon we still had to wait in a LONG HOT LINE to get vouchers for the for, of which they only give you 10 (which is not stated in the Groupon). Also there were NO COVERED AREAS as stated on their website in the FAQs.....Big Disappointed and misrepresentation. With Never Do Again

The set-up was very misleading and the way to receive tickets was not great either. Waiting in a line in 90 degree weather. The idea that the tickets associated with the groupon got you very little and in most cases no food was terrible. And if you're going to have the event in the hottest part of the day during summertime in Tallahassee, the event sponsors should've considered an indoor venue.

It was very misleading how the bands with the tickets you get with the price of the event do not have any correlating value to the what it says you are paying for...I would never get a two person admission and tickets if I only got one set of tasting tickets which only makes you buy more when you're there...the event blamed Groupon then tried to take responsibility, so I'm just not sure what happened but it was an awful event, poorly planned, and a waste of time and money.

Perhaps they will improve if they do this again, but the Groupon tickets did not get a taste at each booth as advertised. Many vendors were confused by different colors of tickets. Overall the design was really not very economical if you were hungry.

There wasn't enough of an explanation beforehand how the tickets would work. 4 wristbands through the Groupon came with only 10 tasting tickets TOTAL whereas if you bought the wristbands at the event for full price each came with 10 tickets. It made it seem like the Groupon was a better deal by stating the total price of the wristbands at the event that came with 10 tickets each. Plus there were different tiers of tasting tickets and that wasn't explained at all on the Groupon either.

Don't go! The customer service was horrible. The organization didn't honor the Groupon as it was described and they blamed everything on groupon. They only had a hand full of vendors (that didn't accept the complimentary coupons). It was over 100 degrees outside and they didn't think to have anything to drink. I will never go to another Taste of Tallahassee if it is being ran by the same organization. Horrible experience!!!

The groupon was honored in the way it was sold. Many people were upset with Groupon as the event and tickets were posted one way and were not honored.

Good idea, poorly operationalized.

From Our Editors

The flavors of Tallahassee—which typically sprawl across all 95.7 miles of Florida's Capital City—converge in scenic Cascades Park for a day of culinary celebration at Taste of Tallahassee. This year's summer fiesta-themed feast features a buffet of foodie-pleasing delights and family-friendly fun. Here's what to expect:

  • The Food: Local chefs and restaurateurs bring their A-game as they unleash their prized dishes (and test just how long you can hold onto your ten tasting tickets) and offer demonstrations of their cooking prowess
  • The Soundtrack: Local bands play melodies to munch to from the outdoor Capital City Amphitheater. Also artist/musician Billy Rigsby will be our featured headliner at the event.
  • Other Festivities: A kids zone with face painting and a bounce house, and the joy of exploring the ponds, waterfalls, and monuments of Cascades Park
