The 2019 Washingtonian Taste of Georgetown, presented by INFINITI, will be held on Sunday, September 22 from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm. It will be held on K Street between Wisconsin Avenue and Thomas Jefferson Street.

 

Washington, D.C.’s most anticipated epicurean festival will be celebrating its 26th year with creative tastes from more than 30 of the neighborhood’s best restaurants along with beer and wine.
