As a ticket holder for The Collective, you will have full access to food and drinks from more than 50 chefs and brands, experience hands-on demos, dive into seminars, shop artisan stalls, relax in our pop-up bistro, frolic in our kids zone, dance in front of our live stage, recharge in our cooling/wellness zone, and lounge all in this historic park.

So we invite you to gather your group, call up your family, and join us in celebrating the flavors of Texas + the bounty of this nation and its borders.

“Food is our common ground, a universal experience.”

James Beard


A Culinary Festival with a Purpose

Realizing a shared vision with the James Beard Foundation to make good food for good™, and spotlight women and minority communities, a partnership between the Foundation, Visit San Antonio, and Culinaria was a natural progression. Proceeds from Tasting Texas will benefit the James Beard Foundation’s scholarship programs, which in turn, provide opportunities for minority culinary talent to develop their skills and experience. Further, by providing high-level exposure to chefs from Texas, the city of San Antonio, and others across the country, Tasting Texas aims to help the restaurant industry, locally and nationally, grow from the devastating financial effects of the pandemic.
