Taste of Edmonton said the schedule and lineup are subject to change. The event runs from July 18 to 28 at Capital Plaza, at 108 Street and 99 Avenue.
Due to construction in downtown Edmonton, many of the summer festivals that usually call Churchill Square home have packed up and moved to Capital Plaza, just north of the Alberta legislature.
Tickets for the food festival are now available, and for the first time ever, festivalgoers will be able to buy and redeem them via a mobile app.
