Taste Participants - New Members

We would be pleased to have your participation in the 2018 Taste of Huntsville, an annual event hosted by the Huntsville Madison County Hospitality Association with proceeds benefiting two local charities. We are in the selection process right now for the 2018 Charities and this application will be updated as soon as they are chosen.

Event is scheduled for Tuesday evening, October 2nd from 5:30 till 8 pm. It will be held at the Von Braun Center in the South Hall.

Huntsville’s Premier Event traditionally hosts 1300-1500 attendees with 50+ restaurants, caterers, food trucks, breweries, and suppliers providing food and beverage samples to the attendees. Each year we have an exciting THEME to our event, and this year we are bringing back a fan favorite - "Tailgate with a Taste". More details will be provided as we get closer to the event, but just know that this particular theme brings out the competitor in us all including our attendees!

We'll also have some exciting Giveaways included as a part of our Event this year to add some excitement to the evening, along with some entertainment! Lots of ideas are rolling in for a NEW and REFRESHED Taste of Huntsville Event, so we hope you jump in and join us as a participant this year! This is a GREAT way to showcase your establishment's FINEST eats and drinks, especially if you are NEW to the Huntsville Market or possibly refreshing your MENU with new items.
