Taste of Bloomington...but with a twist.
Since 1982, Taste of Bloomington has been a downtown summer kickoff celebration of our beloved culinary experiences found throughout the community with food, drink, live music, and fun activities for all ages. Taste of Bloomington thanks the more than 10,000 attendees, hundreds of volunteers and generous sponsors for their support of the event. Although we are all sad that Taste 2020 is canceled, we are still taking the time to kick off summer and support local restaurants.
In place of the one-day festival, there will be Taste To-Go! From June 20 – June 26, order carry, dine-in safely, and buy gift cards (maybe as a Father’s Day gift?) from participating restaurants and celebrate Bloomington staples.
As a thank you to our community, Taste To-Go, in partnership with German American Bank, is providing Taste To-Go reusable carryout bags to the first 2,000 participants. Additionally, the first 500 Taste To-Go bags will include a $5 gift cards to a local restaurant! Pick up your bag Monday through Friday at Visit Bloomington (2855 N. Walnut Street) or any day of the week at the Monroe Convention Center (302 S. College Avenue) from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm between Saturday, June 20 through Friday, June 26.
