‘Tis the season for food festival announcements. On the heels of Chefs For Farmers revealing the line-up for this year’s fest, Park & Palate has announced that it will return to Klyde Warren Park in September.

This year’s Park & Palate will take over Downtown’s biggest green space on Friday, October 21 and Saturday, October 22. Friday night’s event, the Down To The Roots Fundraiser, is already sold out, but tickets for Saturday’s Grand Taste are still available, and there’s been a price drop. Tickets to last year’s event topped a whopping $150, this year they’re just $75.

You’ll find the usual Dallas chef suspects at the event, including Knife’s John Tesar, Chef Kent Rathbun, and Dean Fearing. Out-of-towners include San Antonio’s Jason Dady, Rebecca Masson of Houston’s Fluff Bake Bar, and Uchi’s Tyson Cole. Proof & Pantry and Madrina’s Michael Martensen will mix the cocktails.

Tickets to the Grand Taste are currently on sale via Eventbrite. Proceeds from the event benefit its host, Klyde Warren Park.
