Taste Addison is days away for thrills, gratuitous dining and pleasure for your family and friends. This yea proves to be bigger and we have the low down for you. As with previous years we have a contest to win tickets and a gift certificate to Ida Claire, the crazy good farm-to-table resto in Addison that is walking distance to Addison Circle.
To enter the contest just “like” crave_dfw and @visitaddison along with tagging a friend. Make a comment below to get in on the fun, and be sure to load up on tickets here.

Nate has been on the mend but know you will be able to find his great crawfish made fresh at the event. You will more than likely spot spot the man sipping a cold beer and peeling a few crustaceans.
We are excited to hear bands such as Plain White T’s, Smash Mouth, Spin Doctors and The All American Rejects, but you will find the full schedule for the Main Stage here. The Family Stage has a new band nearly every hour and there is something for everyone from Polka, country favorites and rock and roll.
What a great culinary event and there are plenty of cooking demos with free samples from restaurants and chefs alike. See in person chef Richard Chamberlain of Chamberlain’s Steak and Chop and Chamberlains Fish Market Grill at 3pm Saturday, June 1. But you will find demos from places such as Snooze with their pineapple upside down pancake, Fogo de Chao with a mixed bag of meats, May Dragon, Hudson House, Cantina Laredo and many more running continuously Thursday through Sunday.
You may also discover wine tasting that is sure to please.
