Great music and delicious food converge at the annual Taste Addison event, featuring performances all weekend from well-known acts in a wide variety of genres: the Plain White T’s, the All-American Rejects, Smash Mouth, the Spin Doctors, and the Josh Abbott Band. Addison is known for its plentiful supply of diverse restaurants, and Taste Addison is a great way to experience the food from the city’s 180-plus eateries. There are also cooking demonstrations, origami lessons, painting classes, carnival rides and games, and vendor booths with arts and crafts, caricatures, and sand art.
