About the Williamsburg Taste Festival

The Williamsburg Taste Festival is a celebration of fresh, local food and craft beverages.


Greater Williamsburg is the birthplace of America and where the American food movement – first gardens, vineyards, free range, Chesapeake-to-table and even first brewed beer -- all started. This is the soil and water where Pocahontas and John Smith ate oysters and venison.  And the appetite for fresh and local foods and spirits has never stopped. It’s now evolving, morphing and adapting to the modern palate for today’s food enthusiast. 


Combine original culinary authenticity with Southern hospitality and you have the ingredients for an amazing series of events, all happening April 19 - 22, 2018.  The Williamsburg Taste Festival was founded in 2015 by Patrick Duffeler, Chairman of the Williamsburg Winery. It is supported by the City of Williamsburg, James City County and York County, and managed by the Greater Williamsburg Chamber & Tourism Alliance.
