The event will start at 5 p.m. and continue until 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 each for a taste of five samples, and can be bought at the chamber office and at the event gate.

Taste of the South is a special event where local restaurants and cooks offer samples of some of their best dishes, and the tasters judge their favorites. The event also serves as a chamber of commerce fundraiser.
