Taste of Tallahassee

13th Annual Taste of Tallahassee

Each fall, Florida State University welcomes students back to campus with Seminole Sensation Week. This week provides students with free on-campus activities and events ranging from an involvement fair and comedians to a large outdoor concert. Last year, we averaged over 47,000 students attending Seminole Sensation Week, with numbers increasing every year.

We would like to invite your establishment to participate in these highly successful events!
