Local beer, local wine, and local food collide at the Taste of Newark 2017 on Sunday, September 24th. True to its name, this event treats guests to the many different tastes that their city has to offer. Newark's top restaurants will dish out their signature eats, vineyards from around the area will pour glasses of their most popular wines, and breweries rooted near Newark will dole out pints of craft beer from noon to 3 p.m. at the University of Delaware on the Old College Lawn.

But the food and drink aren't the only reason to visit the Taste of Newark. This event helps raise funds for important organizations in your community, including the Newark Arts Alliance, the University of Delaware's Department of Hospitality Business Management, and the Downtown Newark Partnership. So when you purchase your $50 ticket, rest assured that your hard-earned dollars will do some good in your neighborhood.
