Taste of Manchester

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

Are you hungry for a good time? Explore the local flavors of Manchester. Come to Downtown Manchester and sample what our town has to offer in this pub-crawl style event. Visit locations by limo bus, complimentary of course. Then join us at 9:00 pm for our “After Party” and an opportunity to win door prizes at the Army & Navy Club.

Taste of Manchester is Tuesday, May 12 from 5:30-9:00pm.  Tickets, $25 through May 1st, are available at Manchester Town Hall Customer Service, Highland Park Market, and www.TasteofManchesterCT.com.  There are plenty of tickets now but, historically, this event sells out so get your tickets soon!

We still have a need for 14 volunteers during our 7-9:30pm shift.  Have a great time meeting new people and enjoying good food.  Volunteers receive a free "Staff" t-shirt and reduced pricing on your event ticket so you can have some fun before your shift starts.  Please visitwww.TasteofManchesterCT.com 

and click on the Volunteer tab to sign up. 

We will be having a Volunteer Training Meeting on Tuesday, May 5th, 7pm at Mahoney Recreation Center on Cedar St.  Please feel free to join us if you'd like to volunteer for the 2015 Taste of Manchester.  We look forward to seeing you there!
