This Month's Feature

We're rolling out Taste of the Town IV with some pretty cool changes!

 

Taste of the Town, the annual Chestertown event featuring sampling plates from town restaurants and caterers, will offer its fourth event with some interesting changes.

 

Traditionally held in Wilmer Park on a late April Sunday, this year that date falls on Easter Sunday. With the possibility of weather being unpredictable earlier in the month, organizers moved the date to May 1, only to find that Wilmer Park was unavailable. With the guidance of Bill Ingersoll and Jen Mulligan at the Town office, the decision was made to move Taste of the Town to Fountain Park in the heart of downtown Chestertown.

 

There has been interest since Taste of the Town began in having the event in Fountain Park, but the nature of the location presented challenges which gave organizers pause. But with the streamlining of last year’s event – banquet table seating, smaller live auction and raffles – suddenly the idea of using Fountain Park seemed more manageable.

 

Change of venue is not the only difference in this year’s Taste of the Town. Confident that they have the logistics down pat in their fourth year, organizers are expanding the event to include restaurants and caterers from all of Kent County. “We wanted to strengthen Taste of the Town this year so that people wouldn’t think it was just the same thing again. Opening it up to restaurants and caterers throughout the County gives it a fresh feel and variety, allowing us to showcase even more of the great foods and chefs of our area”, said DCA President Nancy McGuire.

 

Restaurants and caterers interested in participating should contact Andy Goddard at 443-480-1987 or andysctown@verizon.net by February 10.
