DSC02779Every spring, the Rotary Club of College Park hosts the Taste of College Park Food & Wine Festival. The festival takes place at the Historic Dubsdread Ballroom. This year’s event is scheduled for Thursday, April 21, 2016.

The Taste of College Park combines food, wine, music, and silent & live auctions for an extraordinary evening in College Park. Nearly a dozen local restaurants and distributors provide the food and wine; local retailers supply items for the silent and live auction. College Park businesses and Rotary Club members sell nearly 500 tickets.

The event was intimate and lively as it was held in a quaint ballroom that then opens up to an outside gathering.

You’re able to experience the quaint and rustic ballroom

as well as the open outside in the patio.

DSC02788Although I suggest you come early to get a taste of everything because it can get crowded quite fast.

The event allows you to indulge in as many servings of your favorite dish crafted by the participating restaurants as you can handle… as well as wine and beverages.
