Taste of Northfield returns this Thursday


The 7th Annual Taste of Northfield returns Thursday, June 14th, in downtown Northfield. The event will take place on Bridge Square from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Bring your taste buds to this feast! Whether you’re an epicurean or just know a good burger when you bite into one, this event is sure to meet your cravings. There’s also a James Gang bank raid re-enactment, beer & wine tent, silent auction, raffle for $1000.00, and plenty of family-friendly activities — fun for all ages! Live music from the Northfield Community Band, the Rice Country Roosters, and the Big Wu will add to the lively scene, plus dancing in the streets into the night!

From American to ethnic dishes, Northfield has a variety of tantalizing tastes for foodies to sample. “Chef Chris Basina from the Ole Store Restaurant will be serving up a few dishes from their summer menu,” said Deanna Sharp, general manager of the Ole Store who said they were excited to be a part of this local event.

“In six short years, the Taste of Northfield has become one of our community's signature summer events. Sampling good food with your neighbors by the river and listening to some great music . . . what could be better?” said Dan Bergeson, board member of the Northfield Downtown Development Corporation (NDDC).

The Taste of Northfield is brought to you by the NDDC with the support of generous sponsors, business partners, and volunteers.
