Taste of Hingham 2017

The 2016  Taste of Hingham will be held on Saturday May 20th   from 12-3pm in Downtown Hingham MA. Sample an abundance of chowders, signature dishes, ice cream, sweets and more from dozens of Hingham’s finest restaurants, markets and shops. Enjoy live music, free horse-drawn hayrides and fun for all ages at this 10th annual street fair . 100% of the proceeds from the event are distributed to non-profit organizations by the Board of Outreach of the Hingham Congregational Church. 

Every year, we transform downtown Hingham into an outdoor festival, showcasing our local restaurants, food purveyors, merchants, artists, and performers. A highlight of the day is samplings of appetizers, entrees, desserts, candy, ice cream and more from our local restaurants and food shops.

Taste of Hingham was started in 2004 in response to a vision of celebrating and building awareness of all that Hingham has to offer, and simultaneously using the proceeds to benefit over 15 South Shore non-profit organizations. The Hingham Congregational Church, the Hingham Downtown Association and Eat Well, Inc sponsor Taste of Hingham.

Taste of Hingham has been enormously successful with both goals. In addition, thanks to the many who showcase during the “street fair,” Taste of Hingham attracts approximately 3,000 visitors who celebrate Hingham, and enjoy music, art projects for kids, horse-drawn hayrides and many more ways to have a fun afternoon with family and friends.

The Taste of Hingham has raised more than $200,000.00 for local South Shore non-profit organizations.

Over 30 of Hingham’s finest restaurants and food purveyors offered samples of their very best offerings last year. The crowds love this opportunity to taste a little bit of every thing from across Town, and to then cast votes for:

‘Hingham’s Favorite Chowder’

‘Entrée of the Year‘

‘Hingham’s Appetizer‘

‘Sandwich / Burgers/ Pizza’

‘Vegetarian Delight’

‘Sweet Treats / Desserts’

100% of the proceeds from the event are distributed to non-profit organizations by the Board of Outreach of the Hingham Congregational Church.
