The 11th Annual “Taste of SouthCoast” Festival is scheduled for Sunday, May 21st, 2017 from 12 Noon until 5pm on Pier 3 in New Bedford’s Historic Waterfront. The “Taste of SouthCoast” is hosted by New Bedford’s own Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick and proudly sponsored by Pier Fish Company.
The “Taste of SouthCoast” features restaurants, bakeries, and caterers from the SouthCoast area. Participants serve sample sized portions of their signature dishes from noon to 3:15pm. Tasters will be able to keep track of their sampling and cast their votes in the categories of “People’s Choice Award for Food”, “People’s Choice Award for Dessert” and “Best Booth Presentation”.
The tasting wraps up by 3:15pm. The votes are tallied and the awards are presented by 4:30pm. The fun continues until 5pm with live music all afternoon. Beer, wine and soft drinks will be served until 5pm.
There will be something for everyone to enjoy! New England crafted beers, locally grown and bottled wines, and soft drinks are available to complement the food offerings. The Taste Of SouthCoast event will be held rain or shine under bigger tent this year.
A major feature of Taste of SouthCoast is a spirit of friendly competition that will culminate in awards. Participants cast their votes for their favorites in the following categories: The “People’s Choice” Awards will go to the most voted for food and dessert offering and “Best Booth Presentation” awards will go to the participant that receives the most votes for best decorated and creative booth.
