The 10th Annual "Taste in Fenton" event, sponsored by the Fenton Regional Chamber of Commerce, The City of Fenton and the Downtown Development Authority will be held on Saturday, August 7, 2010 from 12 pm - 8 pm in downtown Fenton. Presenting sponsor again this year is The State Bank.
This event showcases local restaurants from the Fenton region and Genesee County and provides guests with a chance to sample delicious foods and experience a "total culinary experience" in downtown Fenton. Attendees will also have the opportunity to listen to live music from three bands.
This year the event will be held rain or shine on the grounds behind the Fenton Community & Cultural Center in downtown Fenton. In the event of bad weather, the event will be moved inside the Community Center. Also held the same weekend is the Fenton Kiwanis "Art at the Center" 2 day art festival on the grounds in front of the Fenton Community & Cultural Center (weather permitting).
Additions to the event this year include a Kids Zone with related activities for children up to 12 years of age. The Fenton Fire department will be hosting a foot race and Tour de Lacs charity bike ride will also be held the same day.
"This event gives area residents an opportunity to taste foods from numerous restaurants in our area in one venue", says Shelly Day, President of the Fenton Regional Chamber of Commerce. "This event draws over 4,000 people and we expect to have a great a turnout this year, especially in light of gas prices and people looking for events to attend closer to home", she added.
