Sample Fayette's tasty food on Sunday
Due to popular demand, Fayetteville has decided to initiate a fall edition of the annual Taste of Fayette! Happening September 15 on the downtown Fayetteville square, the Taste features local restaurants selling samples of their finest offerings.
“Tastes” range from .50 to $3. each, so if you just need a snack or need a full lunch, they’ve got you covered. Some of the participating vendors this year include The Olde Courthouse Tavern, Broadway Diner, City Café & Bakery, Twisted Taco, Johnny’s Pizza, TCBY, Panera Bread Company, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Khalifa (Indian), Partner’s Pizza, Royal Stix Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi, Rosa’s Home Cooking, Betterway Cafe, Cakes by Jan, and more.
Awards will be given for the “Finest Taste”, “Finest Treat” and “Most Amazing Booth”.
Beer and wine will be available at the Lane Brown Gazebo. Fayetteville’s original restaurant on the square, The Olde Courthouse Tavern, will offer a selection of alcoholic brews to enjoy with the food samplings of the day.
All food is sold on a token system, so be sure to bring cash or credit card to redeem for tokens. While munching on the various tastes, visitors can also stroll through the Non-Food section showcasing a variety of other localbusinesses. All day long the fountain stage will be alive with great musical performances from “CTW”, as well as other local entertainers throughout the day.
At the Kids Corner, children can stay entertained with bungee jumps, slides, and face painting for the little ones. Also, the CSI Crime Lab will be fingerprinting children that want to be registered in the national database. Most attractions are at reduced prices or free of charge.
The Taste of Fayette kicks off September 15 at noon and runs until 5 p.m.
The event is presented by Fayetteville Main Street.
