Taste of Bethesda 2014 Lineup

2013 Taste of Bethesda, Cordell Avenue

Downtown Bethesda’s signature event is officially set for Oct. 11 and will include dishes from at least 47 Bethesda restaurants and live music.

The 2014 Taste of Bethesda will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. along Norfolk, Fairmont, St Elmo, Cordell and Del Ray Avenues in Woodmont Triangle. The Bethesda Urban Partnership-run event attracted between 38,000 and 40,000 people in 2013, thanks largely to some good weather.

Taste tickets are sold at the event in bundles of four tickets for $5. Drinks and smaller food items generally cost one ticket each, while more substantial dishes can range from two to four tickets.

Some restaurants that have opened since last year’s event, including Tyber Bierhaus, Bethesda Curry Kitchen, PizzaPass and Heckman’s Delicatessen, will take part. The full food lineup is after the jump.
