Taste Of Lakewood Returns To Madison Park On June 11th
The Taste of Lakewood, presented by the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce and Cleveland Magazine, will be held on Sunday, June 11th from 1-7pm at Madison Park. The Taste of Lakewood is a no-admission fee, outdoor day-long food and music festival that celebrates Lakewood’s reputation as a great food destination. Over 25 of Lakewood’s best restaurants - including Forage Public House, Angelo’s Pizza, El Carnicero, Barrio, Georgetown, Mars Bar, Salt, and Sarita - will be on hand to sell their food to a hungry audience dining al fresco and enjoying great music on the park grounds. The Taste of Lakewood has served as a coming-out party for Lakewood's newest restaurants and this year is no exception: Yuzu, Upper Crust Pizza, LBM and Distill Table will make first-time appearances at the event.
Outstanding event sponsors make the Taste of Lakewood possible. FireSide Band and Where's Jimmy will perform on the First Federal Lakewood Stage. Kids are welcome to pot a pepper or tomato plant in the Good Food Kids Garden tent sponsored by Cleveland Clinic Lakewood, and new for 2017: attendees can charge their mobile devices in the Tech Tent sponsored by NetworkinGuys, and can vote for their favorite food vendor by participating in the Dollar Bank Dollar Challenge.
For those who wish to have reserved tent seating and parking at the event, the Taste of Lakewood VIP ticket ($50) offers both, plus servers who will bring food to your table, a VIP bar, two drink tokens, and a VIP-only raffle ticket to win a complete dinner for four at Pier W.
A portion of the proceeds from the Taste of Lakewood supports the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce scholarship program, established to reward and assist college-bound high school seniors from St. Edward and Lakewood High Schools.
