Taste Edmonds 2022: What to Know

Moonshine BBQ Ribs

It’s almost time for the Taste Edmonds Festival, scheduled for Friday through Sunday, August 19-21, at the Frances Anderson Center Playfield, 700 Main St. in downtown Edmonds. The organizers invite you to come for the food and stay for the music. This year’s food truck lineup offers a delicious range of meals for the whole family. And the music lineup includes a range of crowd-pleasing favorites, from the Beatniks to The Little Lies, the Pacific Northwest’s best new tribute to Fleetwood Mac.
