The Taste of Leucadia 2017 will take place on April 6th!
The 2016 Taste of Leucadia sold out days before the event so make sure to buy your tickets early!
The Leucadia 101 Main Street Association is proud to present the Taste of Leucadia, Food for Thought on April 6 from 5:30pm-8:30pm. Join the community in celebrating the culinary flavors and local libations that make our downtown Leucadia district so unique. The Taste of Leucadia, Food For Thought will highlight our local restaurants, retailers, craft brewers and local vintners. The town will come alive as we celebrate with food, music, and poetry.
Tickets will go on sale March 16th. Your ticket entitles you to a taste at each of our participating restaurants as well as a reusable Leucadia 101 Main Street tasting cup when you purchase a Sip Stop ticket. Sip Stop tickets entitle you to 12 beer or wine tastings that will be served at local non-restaurant businesses called ‘Sip Stops’ and at our Beer Pavilion for the evening. We will only be selling 1000 tickets so make sure to get them early!
Your ticket is a guide to the event. You will see icons near each stop to denote what is available there. You must have a Sip Stop ticket (and wristband) to enter the Craft Beer Garden and Sip Stop locations.
Before you begin tasting beer and wine, you will need to have your I.D. checked at one of four designated locations. You will receive a wristband for the evening as well as a reusable tasting cup. The Four I.D. locations are:

Close to 1500 people attend this event and 1000 tickets are sold. To avoid any parking frustration, Leucadia 101 will provide an eco shuttle that runs on biofuel which will transport attendees from the upper parking lot at City Hall (505 S. Vulcan) to Leucadia and will drop off riders in the heart of the event. The shuttle will be running throughout the night to bring guests back to City Hall. The last pick up will be 8:55 so plan accordingly . We also encourage the public to bike and walk to the event. Additional safety measures will be in place to encourage car traffic to be extra vigilant for pedestrians on this lively night. Take a stroll through Leucadia and check out what the Main Street has to offer.
