The Taste of Omaha is an event focused on showcasing over 50 of Omaha's favorite food establishments. The festival is designed to allow our crowds, typically 100,000 patrons each year, to savor the restaurants' specialties whether they try a small "Taste" or a full entrée.

Here's your chance to get your specialties into the mouths that matter. This is a great marketing opportunity for restaurants. Participating restaurants tend to receive a great bounce back with increased business and brand exposure immediately following the festival.
