15th Annual Taste of Douglas County

15th Annual Taste of Douglas County

As the saying goes, it’s always a good idea to, “eat, drink and be merry.” Thursday, August 17th, the Douglas County Events Center becomes the site for the hottest ticket in town at the 15th Annual Taste of Douglas County. As the name implies, Taste of Douglas County hosts dozens of local restaurants, cafes, bakeries and coffee houses.

Food samplings will abound from the area’s finest local eateries such as The Old Stone Church, Pegasus Restaurant, Crave Burgers, the famous Airplane Restaurant of Colorado Springs and other area favorites. Although the magnificent sampling is reason enough to attend, there’s more to the Taste of Douglas County than tasting alone. Top area chefs will go head to head in a cooking competition, with Adam Friesem from Castle Rock Adventist Hospital returning to defend his 2016 title. In addition to the return of the chef’s competition, this year chefs will be showcasing their talents in a cooking demonstration, offering samples of their wares. Castle Rock Brewing Company will also be hosting a craft beer seminar and tasting as well. While you’re there, be sure to check out the new Rocky Mountain Harley Davidson motorcycles and get a taste of their fabulous jambalaya. Also on hand will be an all-black 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago from Overdrive Raceway in Monument, visiting with food samples from the Overdrive Raceway Sports Grill!

El Meson Mexican Restaurant, Surena Persian Cuisine, Larkspur Pizzeria & Café, Tailgate Tavern & Grill of Parker, Trestles Coastal Cuisine, Viewhouse Restaurant and many, many more will be on hand to treat your taste buds to flavors that draw inspiration from all corners the globe! In addition to amazing samples of savory morsels and sweet treats, many restaurants offer guests menus and coupons for your next visit.
