Alpharetta’s City Council made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Taste of Alpharetta which was scheduled to take place in May, and historically draws an attendance of over 40,000. At this time it is not feasible for the city to host this event, following the guidelines set forth by the Governor, nor is it in the best interest of the safety of the community.

We encourage you to continue doing your part towards fighting COVID-19 and support the local restaurants and businesses that are working hard to provide safe places for you to enjoy!

As you all have heard, this year's Taste of Alpharetta has been cancelled. Even though we have to wait a year to celebrate with you we thought now would be a great time to take a walk down memory lane! We will be sharing "vintage" photos from the good 'ole days and we hope you will join us in the nostalgia!

Share a pic from your favorite Taste of Alpharetta! Let's see who has the oldest! Be sure and tag @tasteofalpharetta here on Facebook or Instagram and if you have a favorite local restaurant you are missing, tag them too!

Don't forget you can still get a "taste of alpharetta" by supporting the restaurants that are open and serving up curbside takeout or delivery! #WeGotThisAlpharetta #TasteofAlpharetta #tastymemories

A wonderful way to show continued support of your local restaurants when they need you the most!
Awesome Alpharetta, Georgia has a great list of Alpharetta restaurants still offering take-out and to-go options!

COVID-19 poses a significant threat to the future of an industry that employs more than 15 million Americans. That’s why a coalition of restaurants (including Marlow’s Tavern) is asking industry peers, partners, publishers, influencers and guests, for help.

On March 24, they are asking everyone in America to show their support for our beloved restaurant industry and incredible employees by joining #TheGreatAmericanTakeout and eating at least one delivery or pick-up meal. Looking for a restaurant to support? Here is a link to participating restaurants: https://www.atldish.com/news/where-to-order-delivery-and-takeout-around-atlanta-during-covid-19

Eat. On 3/24, order takeout or delivery from your favorite restaurant. It’s as simple as that! Don’t forget to post a snap or video of your meal, tagged with #thegreatamericantakeout!

Congratulations!!

You've been asking and we can finally share with you the WINNER of the Righteous Guitars Taylor guitar! Congrats goes to Kim Robertson who joined Mayor Jim Gilvin at last night's City Council Meeting!

During this year’s Wire & Wood Music Festival we encouraged people to complete a short survey so they could be entered for a chance to win this beautiful guitar. Our in-kind sponsor for the grand prize was Righteous Guitars. This locally owned business was generous enough to donate a Taylor Guitar that normally retails for $1400 and hasn’t even been available in the US before now!

Thank you to everyone for participating and offering us your feedback. We can't wait to make 2020 even better!

Are you as excited as we are? Minnie Olivia Pizzeria will open soon! 🍕
