Approximately 24 restaurants will flaunt cuisine ranging from Cuban to Japanese to Indian to Greek to Tex-Mex and most flavors in between, so attendees will be hard pressed to leave hungry. Plus, each day offers two stages of live music and entertainment, along with a wine garden and craft beer hall.

Event hours are 6 p.m.-midnight Friday, noon-midnight Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sunday. Visit tasteaddisontexas.com.
