Taste of Wayne County was created to showcase vendors, restaurants and other food- and drink-related businesses from Wayne County through samples of their signature dishes, food products or beverages.
Last year’s event featured local wineries, stores, restaurants, food trucks and farms. Over 800 people attended the community event in 2017.
The event will feature entertainment by local church and school groups, as well as music by Johnny Bauer from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Tickets cost $10 for 15 samples in advance, or $1 per sample at the door. The first 500 attendees will receive a free event bag.
