Eat, drink, and support public schools. The Taste of Port Chester, a celebration of downtown cuisine, will be held Sunday, June 5.
Its going to be quite a fest, quite a feast I should say, said Joan Conklin, organizer of the event.
More than 20 restaurants are participating in the event, which will showcase foods from all around the world, including Peru and India. Conklin called Port Chester the restaurant capital of Westchester making it the perfect location for the event.
The Taste of Port Chester is a fundraiser sponsored by the Tamarack Tower Foundation, a non-profit that has donated more than $10,000 a year in scholarship awards to Port Chester High School students. This is the first time Tamarack Tower Foundation will be putting on the event. Conklin got the idea after going to a similar event in Belmont, New Jersey.
I started this idea because we have such a variety of wonderful restaurants in town, she said. Hopefully well have a great turnout and make some money for the foundation that supports the kids.
Participants will receive wrist bands that will give them access to samples from every restaurant. A bus will make a loop around the town, providing access to the harder to reach restaurants, though many will be within walking distance on North Main Street. Wristbands are $25 if purchased in advance and $30 the day of the event.
The event is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For an admission wristband send a check made payable to Tamarack Tower Foundation to: Joan Conklin, 75 Bowman Avenue, Rye Brook, NY 10573. For further information call Conklin at 914-937-0367 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . A list of participating restaurants is at tasteofportchester.com.
