Beer will also be available with the purchase of a beer drink ticket.
Taste Fest will also have live entertainment featuring Eric Darius and fireworks. Other activities include a live auction and tickets will be sold for raffle baskets.
"It's a great opportunity to sample the restaurants," said Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce Events Coordinator Cierra Gooding. "A great time to be with family."
Some of the restaurants participating include Bob Heilman's Beachcomber, Frenchy's Saltwater Cafe, Island Way Grill and more (see the entire list here).
