11th Annual Taste of Westport Returns w/ 21 Local Spots + VIP Pre-party

7 Apr

The highly-anticipated Taste of Westport returns for its 11th year in a row this May 7 right at The Westport Inn. This year they’ll be opening up the doors a bit earlier than usual at 6 for a special VIP pre-party with Neil Fuentes, Executive Chef at Jojoto in Branford. This “Intimate Affair” is perfect for any food lover because Chef Fuentes will not only give cooking demos, but will also give attendees a taste of the food and a taste of his band as they perform. VIPs also will get an early shot at trying all the food that’s around and can even put in bids for some of the great silent auction items . . . more on that below. Tickets for the pre-party are $95.

If you can’t make the pre-party or just want to head straight to the main event, that’s okay because it goes from 7-9:30 and will feature some great Westport restaurants and shops. Tickets are $75 and include unlimited food and drink tastings from:

  1. Beaver Beer
  2. Black Bear Wines & Spirits
