The Taste, a community favorite, features all you care to enjoy of wine, beer, and spirits provided by Davidsons Beer, Wine, & Spirits; and sumptuous cuisine from over 30 area restaurants. The ever popular outdoor beer garden will be back once again with additional seating and music!

A commemorative wine glass is included with admission while supplies last. Make your tasting experience more enjoyable by purchasing a reusable plastic plate with a slot for your wine glass. For only $5.00 each it will be the end of the struggle of juggling a paper plate, fork, and wine glass.

Silent Auction Beneficiary: SLEEP IN HEAVENLY PEACE

Each year a silent auction is held in conjunction with the event, with all proceeds going to a local nonprofit charity. This is a great opportunity for nonprofits to showcase their organization and raise funds for their cause. This year, our choose beneficiary will be Sleep in Heavenly Peace.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace has a simple mission: No kid sleeps on the floor in our town. 

All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. Across the US, too many boys and girls go without a bed—or even a pillow—to sleep on. These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets, and even floors. This can affect their happiness and their health. That’s where Sleep in Heavenly Peace comes in. They’re a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. Their organization has grown steadily over time, and they are working on opening more chapters in different states to serve more people. 

So many great charities provide clothing, meals, and toys to families in need. But as wonderful as this aid is, few organizations offer suitable beds and bedding to the kids in these families.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace wants to help fill that gap. If a child needs a bed, we want to make sure they get one. No kid sleeps on the floor in our town.
