Taste of Bethesda is located on Norfolk, St. Elmo, Cordell, Del Ray and Auburn Avenues in the heart of Bethesda’s Woodmont Triangle. Five stages showcase musical and cultural performances, and a children’s area featuring art and craft activities, balloons and face painting will provide additional entertainment for young visitors.

As downtown Bethesda continues to grow, several new restaurants will be debuting at Taste of Bethesda this year: 4935 Bar & Kitchen, Bethesda Curry Kitchen, Fresh Baguette, Heckman’s Delicatessen, PizzaPass, ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen and Tyber Bierhaus. Returning favorites such as Jaleo, Olazzo, Georgetown Cupcake, Louisiana Kitchen & Bayou Bar, Mussel Bar, Ruth’s Chris and many more will also be in attendance this year.

The sounds of The Billy Coulter Band, Chopteeth Afro Funk, The Christian Lopez Band, Hard Swimmin’ Fish, Joseph Keith, Levi Stephens, The Patrick Alban Band and Vintage #18 will fill Woodmont Triangle during Taste of Bethesda. The cultural stage will feature Carpathia Folk Dance Ensemble, Furia Flamenca, Soul in Motion, Teelin Irish Dance Company and Tepua Hio Hio.
