The Taste of Lakewood is a no-admission fee, outdoor day-long food and music festival that celebrates Lakewood’s reputation as a great food & dining destination. The event features Lakewood’s eclectic mix of regionally known restaurants and food purveyors along with live music onstage, beer & wine available for purchase, dining tents, a VIP experience, and fun for the entire family.
Last June, the Taste of Lakewood attracted 15,000 people from all over Northeast Ohio. Join us June 10, at Madison Park in the historic Birdtown Neighborhood of Lakewood. Bring your family and friends and spend the day dining al fresco, drinking craft beer, enjoying great music, while browsing the “shops”.
Vote for your favorite restaurant by placing $1 in that restaurant’s bin. Your favorite may win a trophy, and your donation helps fund high school scholarships. We are proud to partner with Dollar Bank in organizing our annual Dollar for Scholars competition.Lauren Small
