"Sports" will be the theme for this year's Taste of Daviess County. This community social event is hosted by the Daviess County Family YMCA and is now in its 21st year. The event will take place at the Washington Community Building in Eastside Park on April 28 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The proceeds from this event will support a variety of charitable youth programs the YMCA conducts.
The unusual social event includes a variety of foods from local chefs, grocers and restaurants. Ticket buyers get the opportunity to sample the foods that each business has chosen to prepare.
As in years past, food selections will include new items, longtime favorites, specialty items and creative displays. The YMCA has once again partnered with some members of Antioch Church to help serve drinks and clean up.
Participating restaurants/vendors are Pizza Hut, Etienne's Farm Market, Odon Essen Haus, Carla's Catering and Creations, Der Pizza Haus, The Lodge, Yoder's Marketplace, Pop Around the Clock, The Bakery House, Quiznos, The Produce Patch, Long John Silvers, Noble Romans and El Mazatlan.
Each ticket holder will receive a chance to win various door prizes donated by area businesses.
