Harvest Regional Food Bank is excited to announce the return of their annual Taste of Texarkana, to be held November 7, from 5-8pm at the Four States Fairgrounds. This makes the thirtieth year for this signature event and the organization is expecting over 40 food and beverage vendors to participate with samples of their best dishes. “Taste of Texarkana has been a crowd favorite for over three decades,” according to Camille Coker Wrinkle, Executive Director. “It’s a family-friendly event, where everyone can come out and help food insecure families throughout our community.”
Dr. Ly and Aaron Gaylor will once again serve as Grand Presenting Sponsor for the evening. Additional sponsors include Bank OZK, Cabe Cook Foundation, Christus St. Michael, Cooper Tire, Ledwell, Robbins Toyota, Silverstar Smokehouse, TEXAR Federal Credit Union, The Patterson-Troike Foundation/Cadence Bank, and Mr. and Mrs. Buddy McCulloch. “Taste of Texarkana is always such a cool and fun event, according to Aaron Gaylor. “It’s great to see the community show up to support Harvest, and it’s always nice to see so many familiar faces.”
Attendees are invited to sample foods from all participating vendors to their satisfaction. Vendors will also be vying for several awards during the night including Best of Taste and Crowd Favorite.
