Taste of Buffalo announces restaurants, food trucks, wineries for 2018

The Taste of Buffalo is a signature local event that lines Niagara Square and Delaware Avenue with booths representing restaurants and other vendors, while food trucks and wineries - doling out wildly popular wine slushies - also take part.

Festival organizers have announced 59 participants for its 2018 festival, which runs 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. July 7 and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 8, in a news release.

Individual food items range between two and 10 tickets (each ticket is 50 cents), and they're sold in $5 sheets at three booths stationed around the event's periphery.

For those seeking out deals, Tops Markets will pre-sale $10 and $50 vouchers, with the latter accompanied by four non-alcoholic beverages (it's almost always hot on festival day, and you'll be grateful when you don't have to spend $5 on water).

Look back at last year's Smiles gallery from the Taste of Buffalo, as well as News staff photographer John Hickey's shots from the scene. Also read former News intern Aaron Mansfield's humorous-but-informative account of his ToB experience.
