TownVibe and Fairfield Magazine decided it was time to celebrate Fairfield’s dynamic food scene with a party made for food-lovers. That’s why they are throwing the 1st Annual Taste of Fairfield. Lucky you, because we have all the details.
The Taste of Fairfield is Sunday, Oct. 9th from 1 to 5pm in the outdoor tented patio area of Southport’s Delamar Hotel. There you’ll enjoy tastes and sips from more than two dozen restaurants and speciality markets from the Fairfield area.
“The Delamars are at the heart of Fairfield County and home to many wonderful events. Our beautiful courtyards and open-air event spaces provide perfect locations for people to come together. We are thrilled to be hosting the Inaugural Taste of Fairfield and look forward to welcoming the community to enjoy the variety of cuisine Fairfield County offers,” says Charles Mallory Founder and CEO of The Greenwich Hospitality group.
In addition to fine cuisine, craft cocktails, artisanal wine, craft beer, and sweets, there will be live music from local musicians, Otis + The Hurricanes and The Mill River Band, along with other “roving” entertainment. “Good things happen when people connect over good food,” says TownVibe publisher Geoffrey Morris.
Who’s going to be there? Well, the list is still growing, but as of right now you’ll find the following: Artisan, Asylum Distillery, Aspetuck Brew Lab, B.Good, Brick + Wood, The Cakebox, Crave, Donut Crazy, Fairfield Craft Ales, Fairfield Cheese Company, Freshii Fairfield, Flipside Burger Bar, Geronimo Tequila Bar, Joe’s American Bar + Grill, Little Goose, The Little Pub, NOM-EEZ, Old Post Tavern, Quattro Pazzi, Mecha Noodle Bar, Riverside Baking Company, Rive Bistro, Sono Baking Company, Sweet + Simple Bake Shop, Shearwater Coffee Roasters, Taberna Tapas, Taco Loco, Toto, and The Whelk/Kawa Ni.
