A Taste of Ethnic Boston

is now returning on

July 30th

Big Night Live Entertainment

The Taste of Ethnic Boston Food Festival fills the entirety of Big Night Live (located in North Station), an illustrious and flashy nightlife venue that fits over 1,500 people. This event is an upscale and sophisticated tasting of some of Boston's lavish ethnic restaurants with a taste of every diverse community that represents the best of our City and our State.

We want to invite you into the lives and culture from the Caribbean & Mediterranean kitchens to whimsical and soul-infused experiences, Black-owned lounges and restaurants to the lively Latino dance and entertainment venues, and traditional but modern Korean and Hawaiian-inspired menus that honor the ingredients and the flavors all across Asia.

Featuring Gourmet Bites from Ethnic Restaurants of Boston run by Chefs of Color
