Taste of Hoover

Thursday, October 8, 2020

Taste of Hoover celebrates the variety of culinary styles found throughout the city.

This year's event may look a little different than past. Our participating food and drink providers will be spaced further apart this year. Vendors and staff will be wearing masks. Tables will be distanced and cleaned regularly. And we will also be limiting the number of attendees. These are just a few of the things we'll be doing to ensure a safe and socially distanced Taste of Hoover 2020.

As always, you can expect to enjoy an autumn evening with us strolling through the Gardens and sampling delicious dishes from some of Hoover's best restaurants, caterers, and more. Plus you can taste distilled spirits, international wines, and local beers while listening to live entertainment.

Tickets are $45 for Aldridge Gardens members and $50 for the public.
Children 12 and under are free.
Only a limited number of tickets will be available. This event has sold out many times in the past.

Please note, there are no physical paper tickets. Upon registration, your name(s) will be added to our "will call" list and you will simply need to check in when arriving at the event. No refunds will be available.

Please be aware that this is a special event and we will not offer free admission to the Gardens during Taste of Hoover.
