Sample Many Types of Cuisine at Taste of the Valley in Provo

The 19th annual Taste of the Valley food festival will be held Saturday in Provo, at the Historic Utah County Courthouse. It runs from 11 am through 3 pm.

The Provo Herald has this article about the festival. Below are excerpts.

It's like dining at 20 local restaurants in just four hours for one low price: $10 per person. If eating out is a favorite activity with your significant other, then that's three or four months' worth of date nights in one efficient afternoon.

Tickets to Taste of the Valley can be reserved in advance by calling the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce, or purchased at the event. Each ticket is good for one food sample from each participating vendor.

Each year at Taste of the Valley, various awards are handed out to participating restaurants and food service providers. There will be five awards this year, and they'll be handed out based on the response of guests. If you go, then you'll be issued a survey after checking in. Feel free to take notes as you graze, then mark your responses and hand in your survey before you leave. There will be five awards given this year:
- Best Barbecue
- Best International
- Best All-Around
- Best Hospitality
- Best Presentation

There will be live music (and dancing — should you feel so inclined) by various bands, for one thing... Eight local businesses will be arranging various giveaways, games and activities...

Also in Provo, weekly food and entertainment will be offered at historic Town Square. The Herald has this article about the events. Here's a summary:

Starting today from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., residents can celebrate at the Hump Day Market, an every-Wednesday event filled with live music, face painting, food, popcorn, cotton candy and a movie, all in the shaded courtyard behind Provo Town Square. Participating restaurants will provide a $6.99 brown bag dinner to bring to the courtyard and picnic before the show. The rest of the event is free. Free parking is available in the adjacent parking terrace.
