Vendors are now being accepted to showcase a signature dish, dessert, candy, wine, beer or other food-related item at the second annual Taste of Spring, Delta's premier food and wine festival. This fun event brings together local restaurants, cottage foods producers, wineries, breweries and others to showcase and market their items while raising funds to help middle and high school kids in Delta and Cedaredge. The event is a fundraiser for Delta County Young Life.
Vendor spaces are free, and vendors have the opportunity to market at their booth space with brochures, business cards, menus or other items. Feel free to talk about your CSA, herd share, or other food-share programs, plus showcase your delicious wares! Vendors are asked to prepare 250 sample servings of their signature dish.
Attendees will have a great time sampling dishes, bidding at the silent and live auction, and supporting a great cause. Taste of Spring will be held Saturday, April 22, at the Bill Heddles Recreation Center from 5-8 p.m. Tickets are $35 in advance and $45 at the door. Tickets and vendor registration forms are available online at www.TasteOfSpringDelta.com. For more information, contact Ty Gallenbeck, area director, at 970-216-5680.
