It’s here!

Once again market street will be lined with booths from dozens of area restaurants, live entertainment, kids activities and more during one of Reston’s favorite festivals, Taste of Reston.

Taste of Reston takes place June 18-19 at Reston Town Center featuring more than 30 area restaurants, a full line-up of musical entertainment, a kid’s activity tent and, for the first time, a chili cook-off pitting police against firefighters.

In addition to the restaurant samplings, the “Guns n’ Hoses Chili Cook-off” will pit area cops against firemen – the ultimate battle of the heroes –  this time in aprons in front of chili pots.  Attendees can vote for the “People’s Choice” chili. A panel of food writers and critics will determine the “overall best chili”.  The event’s masters of ceremonies will be MIX107.3’s Tommy McFly and NewsChannel8’s Katherine Amenta.

Restaurants include: Chef Geoff’s, Vinifera, Jackson’s, Mon Ami Gabi, Clyde’s, McCormick & Schmick’s, M&S Grill, Il Fornaio, Obi Sushi, Texas de Brazil, The Melting Pot, Mamma Lucia, Buffalo Wing Factory and Milwaukee Frozen Custard. On Friday from 5:30 until 10:30 pm The Fabulous Dialtones will entertain from the Town Center Pavilion. On Saturday, June 19, from 7:30 – 10:30 pm C.J. Chenier & the Redhot Louisiana Band will  perform. The Kid’s Corner tent will feature face painting, games and crafts for children.

Admission is free! Food tickets $1 each
