For more than 20 years food lovers have flocked to Peacock Park in Coconut Grove for a weekend in mid-April that will delight the taste buds at The Great Taste of The Grove. The area’s restaurants all set up outdoor pop-up restaurants for the weekend to serve more than 20,000 hungry visitors. It’s a great weekend activity for the whole family. With so much variety, there is something to satisfy everyones cravings! This is also a great time to venture out and explore new foods in a low pressure environment.
Peacock Park, a bayside park with waterfront views and wide-open green space for carnival rides for the kids, music for everyone and wine, cocktails and beer for the adults. The weekend is packed with live music, cooking demonstrations and contests and more. Previous years have featured more than 20 restaurants, eight concerts and one giant kids Fun Zone. There are even awards given out for a variety of titles, including Best Presentation and Best Taste throughout the weekend.
Coconut Grove is a walkable neighborhood with tons of great restaurants and cafes ranging from quick and affordable bites and bar food to high end steak houses and fancy restaurants. At The Great Taste of The Grove, you’ll get a little bit of everything. Local restaurants participate by setting up under the Great Tasting Tent and serve small plates ranging from $1 – $8.
The Great Taste of The Grove is a food festival, but they’ve stepped it up a notch and now it’s a real entertainment festival with music, fun for the kids and more.
