Taste of the Derby Festival
This was the 17th year for the Taste of Derby Festival event (and 29th year as a Taste event that supports Dare to Care Food Bank), which featured signature dishes from more than 65 of Louisville’s finest restaurants and beverage companies. There was also a bourbon tasting and a plethora of samples from many different distillers, wine tasting, and a silent auction.
The Taste of Derby Festival has the feel of an upscale cocktail party, but it’s open to the public – but tickets don’t last long! The participating restaurants offered a selection of signature appetizers, entrees and dessert items. Some of the liquor vendors featured small-batch brands not commonly available.
A Silent Auction returns to the event offering unique items from generous donors. All proceeds benefit the Dare to Care Food Bank.
