‘TASTE OF WILSON COUNTY’ WHETTING APPETITES FOR FALL 2011 EVENT WITH EARLY PLANNING & IMPROVEMENTS

After tremendous public response at the first-ever ‘Taste of Wilson County’ event last fall, organizers were encouraged and excited to make this year’s event even better on October 13th.

Once again, event proceeds benefited Lebanon/Wilson County Chamber’s education programs. Guests had the opportunity to mingle with local chefs, sample some of the area’s best food and enjoy live music, with even shop for special goodies at the marketplace.

This year also featured an expaned Kid's Zone - with bouncies and art classes.

Another new feature was the Fashion Show.  Local celebrities did their own version of "what not to wear" with models ranging from young children to adult men and women.  Although the kids stole the show, everyone had a great time.

Taste of Wilson County also hosted an icecream making contest near the main entrance.  Competitors actually made their icecream on site!

The Market Place was another great hit - with lots of different businesses represented.

At the end of the night, over $16,000 from the event went to fund various Chamber Education Programs, including Wilson Books from Birth, TN Scholars, the Teacher Grant Program and area scholarships.

Tickets for ‘Taste of Wilson County’ will go on sale in early fall. See photos from last year online, and vendors can check back soon for easy online.

TASTE OF WILSON COUNTY’ WHETTING APPETITES FOR FALL 2010 EVENT WITH EARLY PLANNING & IMPROVEMENTS

After tremendous public response at the first-ever ‘Taste of Wilson County’ event last fall, organizers are getting a head start to make this year’s event even better on October 14.

More than 1,200 tickets were sold last year for ‘Taste of Wilson County,’ with proceeds benefiting Lebanon/Wilson County Chamber’s education programs. Guests had the opportunity to mingle with local chefs, sample some of the area’s best food and enjoy live music, with culinary offerings from more than 30 area vendors included in the ticket price.

‘Taste’ partners Wilson Bank & Trust, Performance Foodservice and the Lebanon/Wilson County Chamber of Commerce are planning for another successful event this October, and will be adding some upgrades in response to last year’s remarkable support and overflow crowds.

Among the planned improvements are double the venue space for guests and vendors at the Mill in Lebanon, as well as double the choices for parking, including a valet option. Attendees to the 2010 event will enjoy the "Taste Marketplace," where vendors will display and sell their signature sauces, gift baskets and other food-related items. This year’s entertainment line-up will include ice carving and fruit carving demonstrations.

Over $9,000 from last year’s event went to fund various Chamber Education Programs, including Wilson Books from Birth, TN Scholars, the Teacher Grant Program and area scholarships.
