Lakewood’s Outdoor Food Festival

On June 1, 2014, from 1:00-7:00pm, The Lakewood Chamber of Commerce and Cleveland Magazine presented the 11th Annual Taste of Lakewood.

“We are thrilled to bring the Taste of Lakewood outdoors to Madison Park. Our goal is to promote our restaurants while creating a signature event for the neighborhood.” Patty Ryan
CEO/President of the Chamber

After 10 years as an indoor, ticketed and consistently sold out event, the Chamber took the Taste of Lakewood to a new level and hosted a no-admission fee, outdoor day-long food festival at Madison Park to celebrate what Lakewood is known for: tremendously Good Food. The new outdoor pay-as-you-go model featured Lakewood’s eclectic mix of regionally known restaurants and food purveyors and provided tremendous exposure for event sponsors and the community. A portion of the proceeds from the Taste of Lakewood funds the Chamber’s annual high school scholarship program, established to reward and assist college-bound high school seniors from St. Edward and Lakewood High Schools.

The 11th Annual Taste of Lakewood included a “VIP Experience” package, beer & wine garden, live music, raffles, food contests and more. The event attracted over 10,000 people from the region and focused on our community’s reputation as a great food destination. Lakewood’s best restaurants, eateries and caterers such as Deagan’s Kitchen + Bar, Melt Bar and Grilled, Aladdin’s Eatery, Nature’s Bin, Angelo’s Pizza, Players on Madison – and more – were on hand to sell their food to a much larger audience, and guests were picnicking on the park grounds,  dining al fresco, and enjoying great music at the newly-renovated Madison Park in the historic Birdtown Neighborhood of Lakewood.
