Taste and Shop Georgetown

October 5, 2020 - October 31, 2020 8:00 AM - 11:30 PM

Eat, drink, shop & play

In 2020 we made the best of what we had with a revised Taste and Shop Georgetown! The four-week free promotional event was inspired by the Taste of Georgetown, and ran October 5 – 31, 2020 – with take-out, delivery and outdoor dining specials at our restaurants and Streateries, paired with Fall shopping and service promotions, and **DISCOUNTED PARKING** as low as $5 per day!

*Historically, ticket sales from Taste of Georgetown benefited the Georgetown Ministry Center’s mission to support the homeless. Although 2020’s promotional event was free, we encouraged everyone to consider donating to Georgetown Ministry Center, as they seek lasting solutions to homelessness, one person at a time.


Pizza, cupcakes, lobster – we’ve got a plate for every palate. More than 35 participating restaurants are offering special menus and promotions in the categories of Breakfast (& Brunch) Club, Happy Hour (sips, bites, and other things that make us happy), Family Matters (family-style meals), and Treat Yourself.
