What’s better than sampling some of Louisville’s best dishes and helping a worthy cause? Not much. Perhaps that’s why each year the turnout increases for the Derby Festival “Taste of Derby Festival,” which will be held this year on Wednesday, April 17. All proceeds from the event benefit the Dare to Care Food Bank. Start planning NOW to attend this spectacular event at Louisville Slugger Field.
This is the fifteenth year for the Taste of Derby Festival event (and 26th year as a Taste event that supports Dare to Care Food Bank), which features signature dishes from more than 65 of Louisville’s finest restaurants and beverage companies. There is also a bourbon tasting, a Bloody Mary Contest, wine tasting and a silent auction.
The Taste of Derby Festival has the feel of an upscale cocktail party, but it’s open to the public – as long as tickets are still available. The participating restaurants will offer a selection of signature appetizers, entrees and dessert items. Some of the liquor vendors will feature small-batch brands not commonly available. A Silent Auction returns to the event offering unique items from generous donors.
All proceeds benefit the Dare to Care Food Bank.
