With 21 years under its belt, the Taste of Downtown is now the longest-running event of its kind in New Hampshire, and has developed into one of the best-organized, most fun and mouthwatering community events in the state. Each event ticket contains a treasure map filled with taste discoveries. Ticketholders can plan their routes in advance based on their food and beverage preferences. Many are not able to make the complete round of all stops, as they are too full after their first 15 stops. Flavors abound, from savory to sweet; there is always something for everyone! Moreover, with over 25 restaurants and caterers participating, visitors are likely to discover a new eatery to add to their list of favorites. Now in its 22nd year, this ticketed event draws hundreds of foodies from the region to sample the culinary offerings of downtown’s best restaurants from inside our fabulous downtown retail and service locations. To add to the festivities, there are street musicians to keep you entertained as you walk from store to store plus prizes, giveaways, raffles and a popular scavenger hunt – The Hot Spot Challenge.
