Join friends and family for the “Annual Taste of Jefferson” as we showcase samples of all our local restaurant’s favorite meals accompanied by live music. New this year will be Artisans at Work. Enjoy learning about the styles and methods of our local skilled artisans. Children’s entertainment will include face painting and small crafts. Don’t miss the Wine Garden in the open-air courtyard of the Jeffersonian Institute Building. Wine Tasting Tickets are purchased online separately of the Taste tickets, or at the door.
Maydelle Country Wines, Enoch’s Stomp Winery & Vineyards and O’Farrell Country Vineyards will be joining us in the courtyard for tastings as the music flows out into the October fall breeze.
This lovely afternoon in October you will not want to miss! It is one of the most talked-about events the Chamber coordinates all year. It is the Taste of Jefferson! Downtown is once again transformed into a street filled with local food provided by restaurants, cafes, hotels and even some other businesses in the area. Advance purchase is recommended. Taste all of the cuisine prepared, and then vote on your favorite dishes. This is your chance to sample each restaurant in Jefferson and Marion County. Austin Street is closed to traffic, allowing you to relax while walking in the streets and enjoying the beautiful fall day, listening to great music and spending time with family and friends.
Not only are the businesses dishing out food for you to try they are also vying for the position of the “Best of Jefferson”. Pick up a plate and a ballot at the booth, after you’ve tried all the dishes you get to be the judge!
