Savor Dallas is a celebration of food, drink and culture; both a food, wine & spirits festival in the spring and a yearlong series of more intimate epicurean events called the Toast of the Town series. Join us as we sip and sample our way through D-FW and celebrate the best food, drink and culture in North Texas!
What are the age restrictions for the Savor Dallas events
All attendees must be 21 or older. Guests under 40 must present ID.
What is the difference between the Grand Tasting and the Reserve Tasting?
The Grand Tasting is the centerpiece event of Savor Dallas and provides attendees with the largest array of food, beer, wine & spirits samples of any of the Savor Dallas events. The Reserve Tasting is a premium tasting event for a smaller number of guests who want to sample only the most rare and exclusive wines and spirits featured at Savor Dallas.
What happens to the outdoor events if the weather is bad?
If it rains, Opening Night in the Arts District moves inside to previously arranged venues within the Dallas Arts District. The Grand Tasting and the Reserve Tasting are indoor events and will not be affected by weather. Community Brunch is an indoor-outdoor experience, but will be shielded from any rain or bad weather.
How do I volunteer for Savor Dallas?
Why do the events occur in different locations?
Part of the fun of Savor Dallas is that guests get to enjoy some of the grandest and most iconic locations in Dallas—from strolling around the Arts District to exploring the massive Grand Tasting at Fair Park and the beautiful bounty of the Farmer’s Market. We love this incredible city and select locations for Savor Dallas that highlight the various cultural icons that call Dallas home.

There are a variety of venues participating in the four-day festival, and as such, parking at each location will vary. Rest assured, there are plenty of safe and affordable parking options to accommodate the guests for each event including valet and self parking.
Opening Night: ‘Cue It Up takes place in the Dallas Arts District. Paid parking lots are available adjacent to the Dallas Arts District, on the south side of Ross Ave, between Pearl St and Harwood St.

The Farmer’s Market features ample self parking in and around the area.

There is a DART station at the main entrance to Fair Park and DART stations are close by the majority of the downtown hotels as well. DART locations throughout the city will bring you safely and conveniently to and from Savor Dallas.
Additionally, we recommend taking cabs, Uber or other car services; and we’ll provide a convenient drop-off area adjacent to the main entrance of each Savor Dallas event.
Are the venues non-smoking?
