Foodies can enjoy food from more than 20 restaurants during Taste of Reston, a two-day festival in Reston Town Center (11900 Market Street) tomorrow and Saturday.

The event is produced by the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce.

Taste of Reston is the largest outdoor food festival in Northern Virginia and has been voted “Northern Virginia’s Best Food Festival” by Virginia living magazine for the past six years.

A family carnival, which includes games and food, will also be held at Lake Fairfax on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. A free shuttle will transport attendees to and from the tasting event throughout the day. Carnival tickets are available online.

Garage parking is free during the event. Food vendors will compete in the “Best of Taste” competition. Last year’s winners were M&S Grill, Agora Restaurant and Tavern 64.

The festival will take place from 3-11 p.m. on Friday and from noon to 11 p.m. on Saturday.

Tickets are needed to purchase food, beer, and wine at the event. They are $1 each or $20 for $24. Beer prices require five tickets for mainstream beer and six tickets for craft beer. Wine costs six tickets for five ounces pour and one ticket per wine tasting.

    How many past ‘winners’ are still in Reston Business Center

    Funny how they always mention parking in some way. Regardless of the parking fiasco, the whole private property is a mess- whether walking or driving it’s always a close call getting hit. The meter maids are too busy writing tickets to help car/pedestrian traffic.

      Is it really that bad? Every time you cross the road or drive your car does a crazy driver come inches from pancaking you into the asphalt or denting your BMW?

    RTC does not recycle. All those plastic cups, bottles and other CPG will go into the ocean. Meter maids should be deployed to help recycle.
