8th Annual Taste of Fayette May 17th

It’s that time of year again when downtown Fayetteville comes alive with fine art, food, and family fun. This Sunday, May 17, welcomes the 8th Annual Taste of Fayette which showcases local restaurants selling affordable samples of their finest offerings. “Tastes” range from .50 to $3.00 each, so if you just need a snack or you’ve come for a full lunch, they’ve got you covered. Participating vendors this year include The Mooving Café, Taco Mac, Smoothie King, Partner’s Pizza, My Favorite Cookie, Mangarelli’s Pizzeria, Grinds and Wines, Gezzo’s Surf and Grille, Johnny’s New York Pizza, Cool Flavors Italian Ice, Baci Italian Cuisine, and Atlanta Margarita Man. Also returning to defend their crowns are the 2008 “Finest Taste” winner, Longbranch Steakhouse and Seafood, and “Most Amazing Booth” winner, Bugaboo Creek Steak House.

All food is sold on a token system, so be sure to bring your cash to redeem for tokens. While munching on the various tastes, visitors can also stroll through the Non-Food section showcasing a variety of local retail and informational vendors.

This event is designed for the whole family, so be sure to check out the Food Lion Kids Corner with jumps, slides, face painting and Buzzly, the fire safety bee. Also enjoy live entertainment all day with R&B Inc. performing your faves from the 60’s and 70’s.

In an effort to help reduce costs, most of these kids attractions are at reduced prices or even free of charge. Fayetteville Main Street Director, Brian Wismer explained, “I wanted the event to be as affordable as possible for our families; and I know that if the kids are able to have a good time, it is a lot easier for the parents to enjoy.”

The event kicks off at Noon and runs until 5pm. The Taste of Fayette is held at the Gazebo at Stonewall Village in conjunction with the Fayette Fine Art Show on the courthouse lawn, and the Taste of Living History displays at the Holliday-Dorsey-Fife Museum directly across the street.
The Taste of Fayette is presented by Coweta-Fayette EMC, The AT&T Real Yellow Pages, and Fayetteville Main Street. For more info, call 770-719-4173.
