Our partners at the Washington State Wine Commission have determined that the Washington wine industry cannot move forward with Taste Washington in light of the current COVID-19 situation. It is with much disappointment that Taste Washington, due to take place March 19-22, 2020 in Seattle, has been canceled.

Due to growing concerns across the U.S., we are unfortunately not able to execute Taste Washington at the quality level our attendees have come to expect.

Taste Washington has been a vibrant wine and food festival for more than 20 years, and we are confident that it will return better than ever in March 2021.

All ticket holders will be given full refunds and we welcome everyone to join us next year, when Taste Washington will return in March 2021, better than ever.

For more information please visit our website at tastewashington.org.
