The Bluffton Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that Taste of Bluffton is returning but with some exciting changes! Rather than a street festival, Taste of Bluffton will return through several “editions,” with the first being Taste of Bluffton: Food Truck Edition on Friday, September 15, 2023, at Buckwalter Place Park from 4:00 – 8:00 PM.

Mark your calendar for the 8th Annual Taste of Bluffton, which is a Southern Celebration of Food on April 4th, 2020. Also referred to as Street Festival, this year’s event will hold a kick-off the night before on April 3rd, 2020 at the Heyward House “High on the Hog Bourbon Gala. You can expect live music, tons of appetizers, and drinks for all.

This year Bluffton will not be holding its Restaurant Week in conjunction with Taste of Bluffton. A Restaurant Week schedule for 2020 hasn’t been published and there haven’t been any updates on Restaurant Week for 2020. If we hear something, we’ll let you know!

Taste of Bluffton 2019

April weather is spectacular in Bluffton. Averaging daytime highs of 76 and nighttime lows of 56, making it the perfect time of year to visit Bluffton. Wear your favorite pair of jeans and a casual jacket (perfect event to dress like the Rock Star you are). Plan on big crowds due to great weather (we only average 5 days of rain in the month of April) and low humidity. Walk the streets, tour art galleries, have drinks outside at your favorite bar by the fire pit and enjoy the lights of Bluffton.

History of Taste of Bluffton and Restaurant Week

The Taste of Bluffton started in 2013 with a street festival designed to promote local restaurants and caterers by providing a sample of their tastings to the public through a festival. Since then, the festival has gained in popularity and size and has become a regional event.

In 2018, The Taste of Hampton Lake was added to the festival to make it a two-day event. Taste of Hampton Lake is a tapas-style, semi-progressive, event featuring some of the best chefs in the area. The event also showcases some of the nicest homes in Hampton Lake.

In 2019, we partnered with Jesse Blanco, the Savannah Food Critic and host of the popular television show Eat It and Like It.
