Annual Taste of Sylva set for Oct. 5
Kick off leaf season with a stroll through downtown Sylva while tasting the cuisine our area has to offer. The Mainstreet Sylva Association, along with Pinnacle Events, will host the fourth annual Taste of Sylva culinary tour from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5. This year’s event has been expanded to feature both downtown restaurants at their locations and other Sylva restaurants set up at McGuire Gardens.
All participants will provide a “taste” of their menu or product to patrons, offering a complete experience of the incredible culinary variety in Sylva. With nearly 20 participating restaurants, attendees will be able to sample a delightful variety of foods provided by almost every restaurant in Sylva city limits.
The event will also feature street musicians, children’s activities, samples from local farmers and growers from the Jackson County Farmers’ Market, and a raffle fundraiser for the Community Table.
Tickets are now on sale at the participating restaurants listed below: $20 in advance and $25 at the door. The event will begin at McGuire Gardens, 553 W. Main Street, where participants will enjoy tastes from Sylva's best restaurants located outside of downtown, then the tour will continue on to our downtown restaurants. Along the way, partipants can hear street performers and visit some of our great retail stores.
