Here along the Grand Strand, we’re no strangers to a good food festival. Depending on the season, you can find anything from Italian festivals to seafood festivals to food truck festivals and more. One of the longest-running food festivals in the area, however, is the annual Taste of the Town event. It features the opportunity to sample fare from some of the Myrtle Beach area’s finest restaurants, tapas style.

This popular fall food festival is actually a fundraiser for St. Andrew Catholic School, and attendees are bound to see many locals enjoying the event along with visitors. The Taste of the Town takes place tomorrow, October 9, 2018, from 4 to 10 p.m. at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center at 2102 North Oak Street. There will be free parking across the street or attendees can park behind the convention center for $5.

Tickets are $6 at the door while ages 14 and under can attend for free. Food tickets are $1 each, and each menu item could cost anywhere from between 1 and 5 tickets. In addition to a wealth of amazing food, Taste of the Town also features a wine and beer garden and will be welcoming food trucks to the event this year. Event organizers also present culinary awards and the live entertainment is always fantastic.

One of the things that makes Taste of the Town such a unique food festival is the level of community participation. We love attending with our family every year and can’t wait to see what they serve up tomorrow night. For more information on Taste of the Town, check out their website at
