Have you been to Taste in Fenton? If not, just check out the pictures. It’s not something that you can easily describe. You have to experience it to understand. It’s mostly about the food. But it’s also about the fun.
The event is organized by the Fenton Regional Chamber of Commerce. A number of local businesses provide sponsorship and set up display tents on the festival grounds behind the Fenton Community & Cultural Center. Also known as Rackham Park.
According to the Chamber, “Summertime boasts the perfect time of year for people to go outside and indulge in what we all love…food and drink! The Taste in Fenton brings restaurants from the Fenton regional area together to serve some of the most delectable samplings of their menus to the public.”
“As well as the food, patrons can enjoy the beer and wine tent, live music, a pie eating contest, and purchase tickets for the annual Chamber Raffle to win a car or cash. Children can relish in the sunshine at the Kids Zone and take part in a donut-on-a-string eating contest.”
