ANDERSONVILLE — The Taste of Andersonville is back this week.

More than 20 local restaurants will participate in the event, which runs 5-8 p.m. Wednesday in Andersonville. Visitors will enjoy samples while walking around the neighborhood.

One of the most popular annual neighborhood events, Taste of Andersonville was canceled last year because of the pandemic. All Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines will be followed, according to the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce.

Like in previous years, there will be two routes — the fork and spoon routes — and attendees can choose one or both. Tickets cost $35 per person for one route and $65 for both. For ticket information, click here.

Check in for both routes will start 4 p.m. at the Swedish American Museum, 5217 N. Clark St. Check below for more information on participating restaurants. For more information on Taste of Andersonville, click here.
