If the allure of discounted eats and special deals wasn’t already tempting enough, Downtown Brampton BIA is also holding daily draws for a few lucky residents to win a gift card from one of the participating restaurants. The grand prize winner will win $500 in foodie gift cards!

From October 10 to 15, you can win a gift card valued between $25 and $125 by following @TasteOfBrampton on Instagram and tagging a friend on their latest post.

However, that’s not your only chance to snag a gift card – during the event itself (October 15 to 29), you can enter for each Taste of Brampton location you visit by snapping a photo of your dish!

Once you’ve taken the photo, enter by uploading it to Instagram with the hashtag #TasteOfBrampton and tagging or following @TasteOfBrampton.

If you’ve been keeping up with the event over the years, you’ll know it originally started out as Taste of Downtown Brampton to help market the restaurants in the Downtown Brampton BIA.

Over time, it expanded to restaurants all over the city to highlight Brampton’s position as both a multicultural community and one of the best places in the GTA for a foodie. No need to go to Toronto for a good meal when some of the best restaurants around are just minutes away!

There’s no sort of coupon or pass necessary to participate in this event – simply ask the restaurant for their Taste of Brampton menu special and they’ll happily oblige. As for reservations, each restaurant handles them differently so make sure to call ahead if you want to reserve a table.

Worried about parking? If you’re visiting a restaurant downtown, you can park at any of the municipal garages for free for the first hour. Parking is also free on evenings and weekends.
