The 26th Annual Taste of Summit will take place on March 10 at the Summit Grand Hotel and will feature nearly two-dozen food vendors, including Summit restaurants, to benefit the Summit Historical Society.
There have been fewer tickets sold this year compared to past years, according to Vice President of the Summit Historical Society, Angela Schneller, but she added that most attendees come from walk-ins who can get in for the price of 50 dollars.
The Annual Taste of Summit is the main fundraising event for the Summit Historical Society, which maintains the Carter House and the upcoming construction of the decommissioned Summit fire truck that will be located on the grounds of the Carter House.
“It’s a big one [charity] for us,” Schneller said. “We have no other way to raise money.”
Schneller added they want a mixed bag of people to come to the event and hope that attendees will be glad to be coming out.
“We’re very proud of it,” she said.
About 20 volunteers of the historical society have worked very hard to put the event together, Schneller said and even the vendors are always so willing to volunteer and come back year after year.
Several of the food vendors and shops include: LaPastaria, the Summit Diner, Winberie’s, Starbucks, Sweet Nothings, Joe’sPizzeria & Vittoria Ristorante, Natale’s Bakery, Marco Polo, The Office, Zappia’s Brick OvenPizza, Brownie Points, Roots Steakhouse, Summit Thai, The Huntley Tavern, Fiorino and Carter & Cavero and many more.
The 26th Annual Taste of Summit is from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Grand Summit Hotel located at 570 Springfield Avenue.
