Taste of the Valley Returns Thursday

River Valley residents will gather at the Russellville Depot for the annual 18th annual Taste of the Valley event.

The award-winning tasting party is taking place from 5-8 p.m.  Throughout the evening, those attending will be able to sample food from River Valley restaurants, caterers, delicatessens, vineyards and food service institutions.

Organizers say there are 35 vendors providing food as part of this year’s event, which is the most that have ever participated in Taste of the Valley.

In addition to enjoying food, those attending the event will be treated to musical performances by several area musicians.

Tickets to the annual Taste of the Valley cost $20 in advance, and the tickets are $25 at the event.  All proceeds from the event will benefit Main Street Russellville.
