Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy one of Fayette County’s biggest events when downtown Fayetteville comes alive with fine art, food, and family fun. This Sunday, May 15, welcomes the 10th Annual Taste of Fayette which showcases local restaurants selling affordable samples of their finest offerings.
“Tastes” range from .50 to $3.00 each, so if you just need a snack or you’ve come for a full lunch, they’ve got you covered. Last year’s award winners were The Cheesecake Boutique for the 2010 “Finest Taste” winner and Atlanta Margarita Man for the “Most Amazing Booth”. This year we have added another category “Finest Treat” to make this event even better. All food is sold on a token system, so be sure to bring your cash to redeem for tokens. While munching on the various tastes, visitors can also stroll through the Non-Food section showcasing a variety of local retail and informational vendors.
This event is designed for the whole family, so be sure to check out the Kids Corner with jumps, slides, face painting and train rides for the little ones, as well as the CSI Crime Lab that will be fingerprinting children for the national database. Most of these kids attractions are at reduced prices or even free of charge. Also enjoy live entertainment with great music from “CTW” and “Jeff Robinson & The Barry Richman Band, as well as other local entertainers throughout the day.
