2016 is the 26th Annual Taste of Jefferson
Join friends and family for the “26th Annual Taste of Jefferson” as we showcase samples of all our local restaurant’s favorite meals accompanied with live music.
Shortly after the Taste, while the ballots are counted, the 5th Annual Waiter’s Race begins at 2:00 pm. Be sure to hang around to cheer on your favorites.
During the lovely afternoons of October is one of the most talked about events the Chamber holds on a Sunday afternoon. It is the Taste of Jefferson! Downtown is once again transformed into a street filled with local food provided by restaurants, cafes, hotels and even some other businesses in the area. You buy a ticket to try all the food provided and then vote on your favorite dishes. This is your chance to try all the deliciousness that our town has to offer. Austin Street is blocked to cars so you can relax while walking in the streets and enjoying the smells of the food and some of the shop’s items that have been artfully displayed in the street.
Not only are the businesses dishing out food for you to try they are also vying for the position of the “Best of Jefferson”. Pick up a plate and a ballot at the booth, after you’ve tried all the dishes you get to be the judge.
This is the fifth year to also offer the Waiter’s Race, so stick around for a little bit longer to cheer all the teams on and see how they do.
