Celebrate A Taste of Del Ray

Top area restaurants are slated to participate in the 12th Annual Taste of Del Ray. The event, named one of Virginia Living Magazine’s top food festivals in the state, will shift to a weekend-long format from Friday, June 4 to Sunday, June 6.

Online registration for the event is just $5, gives you access to an online ballot to cast your vote for the coveted People’s Choice Award. Both the ballot and menu will be sent to the email address registered via Eventbrite. Proceeds from the event will help fund future Del Ray Business Association events.

  • Each restaurant has the option of offering up to three food entries in the competition; all
    entries are available for just $5 each, and will be available from June 4-6. Restaurants also
