We are saddened to announce that we will be cancelling the Taste of Wrightsville Beach scheduled for October 6. We want to give our community, and our vendors time to recover from the effects of Hurricane Florence. #carolinastrong
This exciting event will be held on Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 5:00-8:00pm on the waterfront at MarineMax, Wrightsville Beach.
The festival will celebrate the island’s diverse and delicious fare on and around the beach with over 30 local cuisine, beer and wine tasting booths. Celebrity judges will rate the dishes with a “Best in Show”, “Best Savory” and “Best Sweet” dishes and participants will select the“People’s Choice” award. NEW this year, patrons will vote on the “Best Beer” and “Best Wine”.
Any net proceeds will be used for the following purposes:
• 40% towards the Weekend Meals on Wheels program. The mission of this non-profit organization is to ensure provision of nutritious meals and social contact to senior and disabled persons on weekends and other days not covered by the weekday Home Delivered Meals program in New Hanover County.
