What is Taste of Gulf Breeze?

Taste of Gulf Breeze, or "Taste" as we like to call it,  is an annual food festival hosted by the Gulf Breeze Area Chamber of Commerce. At Taste, you'll have the opportunity to sample from local restaurants, bars, caterers, bakeries, food trucks, and businesses! Our event features dozens of unique vendors handing out bite-sized samples of their menus and products for your party to try.

In addition to more food than is probably healthy to eat in one evening, you can enjoy dancing to tunes from a live DJ plus a special flash mob performance with First Dance Ballroom Studio!

This event is 21+ only with 100% I.D. check at the door.

General Admission begins at 6 pm and the party lasts until 9!


YOU get to choose who wins the Golden Spatula Awards! 

Each vendor will be competing for the coveted Golden Spatula Awards! After you sample from each booth, vote for your favorite appetizer, beverage, and dessert! You'll receive 3 color-coded chips upon check-in to place your votes on who you think should win.
