“18TH ANNUAL TASTE OF JEFFERSON” in Jefferson, Texas Sunday Oct. 18, 2009

Posted on: October 13th, 2009 by Delta Street Inn
Dine as never before on Sunday, October 18, 2009 on Austin Street in historic Jefferson, Texas as the street becomes East Texas’ largest restaurant during the “18th Annual Taste of Jefferson”.

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.
