Taste of Okotoks (Goes Virtual 2020)

Friday, July 31, 2020 - 7:00am to Monday, August 10, 2020 - 11:30pm

The Taste of Okotoks is back for its 8th year! Get ready for a culinary celebration with a twist! Are you ready to surprise your taste buds, support local businesses and explore Okotoks' diverse food scene? Participate and enter the contest for your chance to win!

This year's Taste of Okotoks is going virtual in order to maintain physical distancing and all Alberta Health Services (AHS) guidelines. Local food/drink establishments (restaurants, cafés, bars etc.) will be offering their own Taste of Okotoks Special (à-la-carte and/or menu items) for take out/dine-in.

Previously, local restaurants would come together in downtown Okotoks for residents to sample their foods. This year residents can order a Taste of Okotoks Special directly from the restaurant.
