Taste of Anderson County will be in Jackson Square this month. It’s scheduled from 5-10 p.m. Thursday, October 17.
“The annual food festival and fundraiser for United Way of Anderson County is the perfect way to spend a fall evening, with free activities for the kids, live music, alcohol tastings, and of course, tastes from your favorite local restaurants,” a press release said.
Soup Kitchen, Burchfield’s, Sassy Pants, Volunteer Dogs, Murray’s Oak Ridge, Freddy’s, Sicilia Pizza, Aubrey’s, and Panda Express are just a few of the restaurants to choose from, the press release said.
In addition, several local breweries and distilleries will be at the event to provide tastings. Beer tastings will be provided by Fanatic Brewing; Seven Springs Farm will be offering wine tastings; Sugarlands Distilling Company will have moonshine to sample; and Postmodern Spirits will be providing tastes of some of their vodkas, gins, and whiskeys.
“As always, there will be great choices of beer, wine, and a special cocktail at the bar, courtesy of Sugarlands Distilling Company and Cherokee Distributing,” the press release said.
There will be live music from local bands throughout the evening, from the funky sounds of Peacemill, to Wives and the award-winning band Danger Noodle.
Special guest Sinan the squirrel will be available for pictures for a donation to United Way of Anderson County, the press release said. This year, Taste of Anderson County is also debuting a Super Smash Brothers tournament courtesy of D-Man’s Repair, the release said.
