Local restaurateurs, café owners and non-profit organizations turn out samples of their finest foods for this mouthwatering event.
“Last year we served food to more than 800 visitors”, said Charles Chitwood, President of the Marion County Chamber of Commerce. “Once they bought their tickets, they could wander up and down the street, choose their favorite dishes, then head back for more – if they had any room left.”
The street-long feast serves up every imaginable sample from soup to a full meal. Visitors can start with a soup or salad (or both), pick innumerable entrée samples, and then top it off from a dizzying assortment of desserts.
Lunch will be served Sunday, October 18 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 5-11. Austin Street will be closed to through traffic so bring comfortable shoes for the three-block buffet.
The Taste of Jefferson is sponsored by the Marion County Chamber of Commerce and The Made-Rite Company of Longview, proud distributors of Dr. Pepper, Diet Dr. Pepper and other refreshing beverages.
