One Summer event that is always in good taste is the annual Taste of Ellicottville. This year marks the 27th annual foodie party, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and Sysco. The dates are August 11th and 12th. noon to 4pm both days. About 18 of the local restaurants participate by setting up tents selling samples of their tasty fare. The main section of downtown is closed to traffic to allow participants easy access to the food booths. Participants will be able to sample everything from pizza, to ribs. Ravioli, to pulled pork sandwiches. But save room for desert; many of the restaurants will be offering some of their luscious deserts. Tickets can be purchased for $1 each, and will be sold during the event. Food items generally go for one to four tickets. Stroll around our beautiful historic downtown, linger by the antique gazebo, and sample great local food. All you have to bring is your taste buds and an empty stomach.
