Fairfield Magazine & TownVibe Announce
the Second Annual Taste of Fairfield Culinary Event
Fairfield is a hot destination for terrific restaurants and talented chefs. Fairfield Magazine, part of multi-magazine media company TownVibe, is preparing to celebrate our dynamic food scene by organizing the second annual food-lover’s party of the year—Taste of Fairfield—on Sunday, October 8, 2017, from 1pm to 4pm, held in the outdoor tented patio area of Southport’s Delamar Hotel. “The Delamars are at the heart of Fairfield and Hartford Counties and home to many wonderful events. Our courtyards and open air event spaces provide perfect locations for people to come together. We are thrilled to be hosting the Taste of Fairfield again and look forward to welcoming the community to enjoy the variety of cuisine the area offers,” says Charles Mallory, Founder and CEO of The Greenwich Hospitality group. Foodies and other fun-loving folk can enjoy tastes and sips from more than two dozen restaurants and specialty markets from the Fairfield area, all in the spacious courtyard of the Delamar and Artisan Restaurant. In addition to fine cuisine, craft cocktails, artisanal wine, craft beer, and sweets, there will be live music from local favorite Otis & The Hurricanes, along with “roving” entertainment. “Good things happen when people connect over good food,” says TownVibe publisher Geoffrey Morris.
The restaurant list is still growing but to date includes Artisan, Asylum Distillery, Aspetuck Brew Lab, B.Good, Brick & Wood, The Cakebox, Crave, Fairfield Cheese Company, Fairfield Craft Ales, Freshii Fairfield, Flipside Burger Bar, Geronimo, Hub & Spoke, Josh Wines, Little Goose, Old Post Tavern, Owl’s Brew, Shearwater Coffee Roasters, Sport Hill Farm, Red Bee Honey, Taco Loco, and Valor Spirits. This year a special “Food Truck Alley” parked in front of the Delamar Hotel will showcase Loco’s new truck, along with other surprises-on-wheels.
Together, these restaurants create an array of delicious and diverse options for participants. Cuisine ranges from farm-to-table to seafood-focused to old-school Italian comfort food to nouveau-Mexican cuisine. The event will also offer various wines, beers, and cocktails to create the perfect ensemble — all available for one ticket price. Special “chances to win” will offer great prizes and food drives will be held to benefit charity partner Operation Hope. Sponsors on board include Balducci’s, Cannondale Generators, Jaguar Land Rover Fairfield, and Black Rock Galleries for the VIP lounge. Taste of Fairfield is proud to kick off Fairfield’s Sixth Annual Restaurant Week—beginning October 9 including two dozen restaurants.
General Admission tickets cost $60: including food, drink, and entertainment. VIP Admission—with access to the Black Rock Galleries Fusion Lounge costs $100 and includes ongoing food service, drinks from VIP bar, entertainment, private parking, and a TV. Tickets may be purchased online at tasteoffairfield.com. Guests under 21 years old are $20 and children under 10 are free. The event is tented, but happens rain or shine, and Star 99.9 will have a radio crew on site.
