In 1984, a creative group of parents organized the first Taste of the Town as a fundraiser for St. Andrew Catholic School. The fledgling event made its debut hosting about 20 restaurants, it was well-attended, and the event gained immediate popularity in the Myrtle Beach community.
Now in its 32nd year, Taste of the Town features 50+ restaurants, culinary awards, live entertainment, and is poised as one of the Grand Strand area’s most highly anticipated food festivals. Over the past several years, attendance of this one-night event has soared to 8,000 – 10,000 locals and visitors. Taste of the Town’s growing success is greatly made possible by the generous contributions of local businesses through various levels of sponsorship.
