Taste of Parker County

April 26, 2013 by Jennifer Retter

Event Date: 
Thu, 05/16/2013 (All day)

For the fifth consecutive year, local restaurants and caterers will gather in one place with one goal in mind: to make sure no one leaves the “Taste of Parker County” hungry. The event, scheduled for Thursday, May 16, at the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse Clubhouse, is a fundraiser for the Weatherford College Foundation and its “The Time is Now for Your College” capital campaign.

With the purchase of a $35 advance ticket ($40 at the door), patrons can enjoy samples from all of the participating vendors, and can even go back for seconds...or thirds.

“This is one of our favorite nights of the year,” said Brent Baker, executive director of the WC Foundation. “No speaker, no program…the star of the night is the food.”

Several vendors are returning for the fifth consecutive year, including The Wild Mushroom, Golden Moon, Rosa’s Café, City Kitchen, Chicken Express, Yesterdays Sandwich Shop and Buffalo Wild Wings, Rahr & Sons Brewing Company, Ben E. Keith Beverages, Boo-Rays of New Orleans, 2 Outlaws, Taco Cabana, Starbucks and Yogurt Story.

New vendors this year include Copper Creek Restaurant and Short Chef Creations Catering. Other vendors have also expressed interest.

“Last year, we sold out of vendor spaces, and we expect to do the same this year,” Baker said. “There’s no way anyone is leaving this event hungry.”

Sponsors this year are Southwest Auto Group, First National Bank of Weatherford and Plains Capital Bank.

Tickets are available for purchase online at www.tasteofparkercounty.com. Tickets are also available at the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce and in the WC Institutional Advancement Office, Mince Building.
