Get a Taste of Your Local Community—Clarksville’s Festival of Flavors

Clarksville festival of flavorsThe KIX region has no shortage of great places to eat, and each city, town and village has at least one “special” place where local residents can find a traditional favorite food. Sometimes these places gain a following from out-of-towners, who recognize a good thing when they eat it.

Clarksville is one of those local cities with a long history of great eating, and after a season of economic stress largely brought on by the several month closure of the Sherman Minton Bridge, the Clarksville Town Council decided to “bridge the gap” by starting a new tradition — Thus, the 1st annual “Festival of Flavors” was born.

The event will showcase the city’s multitudinous dining pleasures, and serve as a gastronomic reminder to the eating public of all that Clarksville has to offer. The purpose of the event is not to raise money, but to create an evening of culinary enjoyment and family fun for city residents and nearby communities. At the same time, the event will serve to highlight Clarksville’s many outstanding local restaurants.

The evening will begin at 6:00 on December 6th with cocktails at: The Montrose, 318 West Lewis and Clark Parkway,
Clarksville, Indiana.

Dinner will follow from 7:00-9:00 p.m. with a tasting of offerings from the several area restaurants including: Chuy’s, Cheddar’s, Olive Garden, Senor Iguanas, Roosters, Sweet Frog, Williams Bakery, Stumler’s Catering and Zaxby’s.

All proceeds from the event will go towards hosting more events similar to this one, with the goal to boost business in the city.

Tickets are available online at clarksvillefestivalofflavors.com or from AAA.

Come and taste what a great community has to offer. And keep your eyes open for other similar events that will be occurring in the KIX region throughout the holidays.
