Taste and Shop Georgetown

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

Eat, drink, shop & play

This year we’re making the best of what we’ve got with a revised Taste and Shop Georgetown! The four-week free promotional event is inspired by the Taste of Georgetown, and will run October 5 – 31 – 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! Click here for parking specials at several of our Georgetown garages, and check out the Taste and Shop specials below at 65+ Georgetown businesses.

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