A sampling of the best Wise County has to offer will be showcased in the third annual Taste of Wise Thursday, Aug. 29, at the Decatur Civic Center.

From 5:30 to 8:30, about two dozen local restaurants and caterers will offer tastes of their food and drink, for free.

Last year, organizers spotlighted local retailers with a pageant in which contestants wore the merchandise of local shops and boutiques. This year’s event focuses on local entertainment, and local artists Dakota Burns, Pat Waters, Brandon Gentry, Cody Robbins, Megan Nichols Adams and Colt West will perform throughout the evening.

In addition, entertainment venues in Wise County will also set up booths.

“I don’t think people realize what awesome venues we have available here in Wise County,” said Susan Miller, chair of the Wise County Look Local Task Force. “This event makes people aware of all Wise County has to offer as far as different types of food. As the Look Local Task Force, our goal is to show people what all you can get locally.”

The event is free to the public and vendors. There will be door prizes every 10 minutes.

To sponsor or donate door prizes, call Susan Miller at 940-627-7658.
