The festival will again continue the program of changes incorporated last year, making it much easier and more affordable for restaurants to participate in the Taste of Savannah. There will not be a booth fee for restaurants to participate, each invited and/or selected participating restaurant will only be responsible for obtaining their approved health department application by September 27, 2016.


The festival will again be utilizing food coins, with partner restaurant revenue sharing, 60% for the restaurant partner and the festival receiving 40%, which helps cover the event's equipment and production costs.  Restaurant applicants must be first approved by the Taste of Savannah restaurant committee and applications must be submitted to the festival on or before September 20, 2016.


With our location at the Georgia State Railroad Museum the festival is able to provide some larger culinary tasting tents, with restaurant tasting tables along with individual 10' x 10' booths. All approved restaurant partners will immediately be included on the Savannah Food & Wine Festival's website as part of the Taste of Savannah's featured restaurants.
