May 27, 2020

Major festival at Addison Circle Park will return 2021.

The Town of Addison, Texas, is announcing that due to the COVID-19 crisis, Taste Addison 2020, originally scheduled May 29-31, has been canceled. Although the town considered alternative dates for the event, due to the uncertainty surrounding restrictions on large-scale gatherings, it has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s festival. The Special Events Department is currently working toward an agreement with booked national musical acts to reschedule performances for next year’s event. Taste Addison 2021 is currently anticipated to kick off June 4, 2021 at Addison Circle Park.

“This is the first time Addison has had to cancel an entire festival,” said Jasmine Lee, Addison’s Director of Special Events. “However, the safety of our guests and everyone involved is our top priority.”

Taste Addison tickets have already been automatically refunded to the credit card used to make the purchase; no action from the ticket buyer is required.

Since its inception in 1993, Taste Addison has earned a reputation for presenting the most exciting collection of musical entertainment paired with a stellar food event that showcases the city’s celebrated restaurant community.  Addison is recognized nationally as having more restaurants per capita than any other U.S. city.

“Even though visitors won’t be able to sample Addison restaurants at Taste Addison, we still encourage everyone to dine out or take out from Addison’s restaurants,” said Lee.  A list of Addison restaurants can be found at
