Taste of Irving is coming to Valley Ranch, bringing food, fun and festivities on May 31.
Food is the focus of Taste of Irving, a new festival that highlights local restaurants and provides attendees with the ability to purchase menu samples. Similar events have found success across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and Irving is ready to show off the wide variety of cuisines offered at its restaurants.
Located at Cimarron Park, 100 Cimarron Trail, Taste of Irving offers more than just great food. Country and blues bands, such as Breaking Southwest, will perform throughout the day on the CBS 11 Main Stage. A craft marketplace provides shopping opportunities with unique and handmade items.
“Families will have a great time at this event,” said City of Irving Special Event Coordinator Jasmine Lee. “The Fun Zone, presented by Baylor Medical Center at Irving, includes a petting zoo, inflatable rides, face painting and more for children ― all at no charge.”
Taste of Irving will be held noon to 6 p.m. May 31. Admission is free, and parking with shuttle service is available at nearby Ranchview High School. Also included is a Summer Programs Expo where parents can gather information about summer camps, classes and athletic programs offered throughout the area. The expo will be inside the recreation center gymnasium.
