  1. Could you send me a little more detailed information on the events. what does the $50.00 tickets included for the Iron chef competition. this will be my first time. What would you most recommend?

    • Hi Kimberly! Here’s a little more info on the events:
      Iron Chef: $50 tickets are for auditorium seating during the competition. You will be right in front of the teams of chefs and feel the heat!
      The $25 ticket is general admission. You will be able to see all the action on tv’s throughout the facility.
      All tickets include wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres.

      The Taste of the Arts on Gallery Row includes 12 art galleries on Broad Street in downtown Charleston. Each gallery is paired with a restaurant who will provide appetizers and white wine. You can stroll through the galleries and enjoy food and drinks while perusing the works of art.

      The Main Event (both Saturday and Sunday) features 40+ restaurants each selling sample sized portions of their signature dishes. Plus live entertainment, kids’ area, exhibits, etc.

      Does that help?

    • No. the ticket is for admission only. Parking is free but you will buy tickets for food and drinks inside. We DO take credit cards

    • There are no group discounts other than the advance ticket price ($5/ticket off gate price)
      Go to the Taste of Charleston page on this site and you will be able to buy as many tickets as you’d like with one transaction. thx!

  2. Sorry to re-ask a question, but there seem to be conflicting answers. Does the price of a ticket come with food and beverage? The July 20 post says, “All tickets include wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres”, but the July 29 post says “the ticket is for admission only”. Can you please clarify?

    • So sorry for the confusion … the only tickets that include food and beverages are the Taste: Iron Chef (Friday 10/7) and the Taste of the Arts on Gallery Row (Saturday 10/8)
      The Saturday and Sunday Main Event tickets on sale are strictly for admission to the event. Once inside, you will purchase food and beverage tickets to spend with the vendors you choose.
      Hope that helps!!!!

  3. We’re coming in from out of town and would like to attend Sunday’s event at Boone Hall. If I purchase my tickets online will they be mailed to me or will we need to pick them up?

    • When you purchase the tickets on line you will be emailed immediately with a link to print your tickets. Super easy.

  4. Is it possible you will sell out for entrance-only tickets? Is there a limit to the number of people you will admit on either day and is there adequate parking – if I have a ticket, will I be certain there will be a parking place?

    • Hi Mike – it certainly IS possible for us to sell out. There is a limit to the space on the plantation. There is plenty of parking!! But the earlier you get there the closer you’ll be to the gates. See ya there!!

    • hmmm, well that would depend on how hungry you are 🙂 The restaurants will be serving sample size portions so most people will want to try eat least 4-5 items. Food prices range from $4 – $6 each.

  5. We are flying in on Sunday (10-9) and arriving just before noon…by the time we get a rental car we probably couldn’t get to the event until 1:30pm…would it be worth the trip? I think I saw that the event closes at 5pm. Thanks.

  6. I’ve been coming to the taste of Charleston for the past 5yrs, first as a student chef with Trident….curious as to why the taste is 2days this year and are there going to be the same vendors both days or do I need to plan to attend Saturday and Sunday?? I don’t want to miss out. It’s one of my favorite events

    • Hi Rosci! Thanks so much for supporting the event for so many years! Saturday and Sunday will mostly the same (with a few exceptions) – BUT we have a lot more attractions this year than in years past including the Southern Living Village. We want to make sure people have time to enjoy everything there is to offer at the Taste so come on out for both days and you won’t miss a thing!.
