TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville Area Chamber of Commerce presents its 13th Taste of Trussville on Thursday, May 12, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Trussville Civic Center.
This year’s tasting event will feature an outdoor seating option, music by DJ Rob Langford, a cash beer and wine bar, and food samples from 21 area eateries.
“We’ve got a terrific lineup of food vendors, some of which have yet to open locally,” executive director of the Trussville Area Chamber of Commerce, June Mathew, said. “It’s always fun to get a preview of what’s coming to the city, and this event offers everybody a chance to do that.”
Taste of Trussville began in 2009 as TASTE (Trussville’s Art Show & Tasting Event). Originally billed as a “date night” for couples, the event also included a regional fine arts show.
In 2018, the art show part of the event was dropped to make room for more food vendors and guests, and the name was changed to Taste of Trussville. In addition, the logo changed from an elegant pastel green TASTE design to a whimsical Taste of Trussville design in bright blue. The event was billed as family-friendly and priced to match, and the retooled foodfest was a sellout.
Advance tickets for this year’s Taste of Trussville are $20 and are available online or at the chamber office at 400 Main Street in downtown Trussville. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door for $35.
“Tickets are going fast,” Mathews said. “After three sellouts in a row, people are buying early, but it’s also one of our most popular events.”
