 Taste of Danbury on CityCenter Green is a huge event that gets Danburians (?) and other Fairfield Countiers super excited…but it’s going to be even more redonkulous this year.  Why, you ask?  Well, our friends Chef Plum (Plum Luv Foods) and Alicia Ghio (Natural Princess and Local Food Rocks) will be doing chef demos on the Ives Street stage along with Sarah Caron from Sarah’s Cucina Bella and Jeanette Chen from Jeanette’s Healthy Living.  If you’re looking at the picture above, Chef Plum is the cool dude contemplating bananas and a whisk, Sarah is in the bottom left, Jeanette is in the middle, and the ever so fabulous Alicia is on the right.

But, we’re not talking about just cooking demos.  We’re also talking about major competition between these four chefs, and Chef Plum proudly stated it’s the only place to get a penny beer tasting!  A penny for a taste of Two Roads?  Score!  And, Plum has brought along the Pro Player Insiders to get in on the action, too.  If you want a sneak peek of Alicia’s Oktoberfest inspired recipe, check out her post here.

While the demos are taking place on Saturday, 9/14 from 2-5, there are lots of other reasons to come by earlier, later, and the next day.  Many of the best restaurants from the area will be there on hand letting you sample some of their food.  Also, there will be food available for purchase in case samples just aren’t enough for your gargantuan appetite.    There will also be lots of crafts, vendors, and things to do with your kids.

Plus, there will be a ton of live music with a very special guest who will be playing both days.  Here is the schedule:
