Taste of Savannah: The festival will again continue the program of changes incorporated last year, making it much easier and more affordable for restaurants to participate in the Taste of Savannah. There will not be a booth fee for restaurants to participate, each invited and/or selected participating restaurant will only be responsible for submitting their approved health department application by September 27, 2017.
The festival will again be utilizing food coins, with partner restaurant revenue sharing, 75% for the restaurant partner and the festival receiving 25%, which helps cover the event's equipment and production costs. Restaurant applicants must be first approved by the Taste of Savannah restaurant committee and applications must be submitted to the festival on or before September 20, 2017.
With our location at the Georgia State Railroad Museum the festival is able to provide some larger culinary tasting tents, with restaurant tasting tables along with individual 10' x 10' booths. All approved restaurant partners will immediately be included on the Savannah Food & Wine Festival's website as part of the Taste of Savannah's featured restaurants.
Application Cost: $65
Submit all applications to email@example.com
Cheney Brothers Restaurant Competition
NEW for 2017, the festival will present the Cheney Brothers Restaurant Competition featuring the following Categories:
Restaurants may submit one savory tasting and one sweet tasting for judging. With pre-baked items, you do not need to add anything to the health department
license. (As of today, we are only expecting a few submissions into the sweet category. If you are able to diversify your offerings with a pre-baked sweet item,
you increase your odds of taking home trophy!)
Judging will take place at 12 PM – restaurants that have not been certified by the Health Department at this time will be unable to participate.
The competition will be evaluated according to the PDF link below.
OTHER RESTAURANT EVENT OPPORTUNITIES
The festival will be promoting special event oriented wine dinners happening during the festival and will no longer be managing any wine dinners taking place at local restaurants in Savannah. The festival will be featuring approved restaurant partner wine dinners taking place during the festival, at no charge on the festival's website, as long as the restaurant is in some way a partner with the festival (participating restaurant in a festival event or local chef demo, Taste of Savannah partner, host venue, etc.). In order to be listed on our landing page, the wine dinner information must be submitted to the festival by October 1, 2017.
