Taste of Forsyth returns for 11th year



I like to eat, so when I heard a weekend food festival was returning, my palate began to salivate.

To calm my belly, I’ll be going to this year’s Taste of Forsyth, which takes place Saturday, April 19 at the Cumming Fairgrounds.

The 11th annual event is sponsored by the City of Cumming and Superior Plumbing and will offer samples from 25 local restaurants.

The samples vary in price from $1 to $4 (cash only) and are a great way to try all that Forsyth County restaurants have to offer.

The event organizers say from Jamaican jerk chicken to kabobs and barbecue, there’ll be something for every taste bud.

The event kicks off at 11 a.m. through 6 p.m. at the Cumming Fairgrounds, 235 Castleberry Road.

And food samples are not all. This family friendly food-centered event, will feature inflatables and a pretty epic Easter egg hunt. The egg hunts will run throughout the day. Ages 3 and younger at 11:30 a.m.; 4 to 7 at 12:30 p.m. and for 8 to 10 at 1:30 p.m.

And with everyone being a restaurant critic these days, you’ll get to vote as well. Last year about 15,000 people attended.

Some of last year’s winners include the crab cake and pasta from Tam’s Backstage; the strawberry shortcake by Ice Cream Social and the barbecue flatbread pizza by Mia Ristorante Italiano.

Is your palate salivating, too? I thought so.
