Because of the pandemic, last year’s Taste of Buffalo was a virtual one. But with more and more people getting the COVID-19 vaccine, Taste of Buffalo organizers announced that this year’s event would similar to those of years past according to WIVB-TV.

Taste is scheduled to take place July 10 and 11, and COVID most likely won't be entirely over,  with officials noting that “there may still be COVID-19 health restrictions in place throughout the spring and summer.”  If this year's weather mirrors Taste celebrations in the past, it will be one of the hottest weekends of Summer.

“The Taste of Buffalo has always existed to support our locally owned restaurants. After so many of them have endured unthinkable hardships during the pandemic, our mission is more important now than ever,” said Taste of Buffalo 2021 Chair Amber Hartman. “We are working
with our state and county officials to follow all safety guidelines that may be in place come this July. We hope this announcement gives our community something to look forward to this summer and sends a message to our local restaurants that better days are ahead.”

Officials say this year’s Taste of Buffalo will be, as it has in previous years, a “ticketed event with multiple sessions to be held over the weekend.”

Details on how you can purchase your Taste tickets haven’t been released yet, but that information will be released as the event gets closer.
