For over a generation, the Taste of Amherst, has established itself as a beloved town and regional institution. The event, organized by the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce, and presented by Atkins Farms Country Market is filled with food, family, and fun!
Over the years, the Taste has grown. Now over 20 Amherst area restaurants participate in the event, showcasing some of the area's favorite food. 93.9/The River organizes the music for the event. Once again, the Taste is happy to welcome Chef Bill Collins, who is organizing the Cooking Demo tent (now in its 6th year!). Over at the beer and wine tent, The Pub and Atkins will be putting on a great beer and wine spread for your enjoyment on Friday and Saturday evening.
Back by popular demand: our very own “Chow-Down Challenge”!!! Inspired by committee member Youssef Fadel of New England Promotional Marketing, the Challenge features local offerings from Taste participants, town celebrities and taste-goers, who will compete in our 2nd ever eating contest at the Taste. All you need to bring is your appetite! The winners of qualifying rounds will face-off on Sunday afternoon to be crowned Champion.
Chow-Down schedule to be determined!
