TASTE: Over 20 city of Hudson restaurants, cafes, bakeries and food retailers
Rain or Shine, 11 am to 2 pm
Under the big tent between 2nd & 3rd St. on Warren then GALLERY STROLL at 5 pm
Organized by the members of the BeLo 3rd group, this year’s participants will offer “tastings” of select menu items that highlight the diverse cuisine and dining opportunities in Hudson. Food lovers can graze their way through appetizers, entrees, gourmet coffee, teas, cheeses, ethnic and comfort foods, baked goods, soups and desserts. Tickets will be sold on location the day of the event.
According to BeLo 3rd President, Kevin Moran “when looking for an event that BeLo 3rd could host and include the Hudson business community, a street fair seemed to be an optimum way to get attention. Upon further discussion a food festival like the Taste of Chicago was agreed upon and Taste of Hudson was born.”
Dave Colby, President and CEO of the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce says “Taste of Hudson gives visitors yet another reason to come to the city of Hudson to shop BeLo 3rd Warren Street and beyond. It’s good for all businesses .”
Max Cenci, co owner of Ca M’ea Ristorante and a sponsor of this year’s festival says “ we had so much fun doing Taste last year that we just had to do it again this year.”
“Last year’s event was a huge success and we hope this year will be as well” states Moran, “after all everyone loves food!”
~special thanks to our gold, silver and bronze sponsors for helping to make TASTE a reality~
