Check out what previous attendees had to say!

"Great event!! Was great being able to try some things from places we might not otherwise try."

"I live close enough to Uptown that I should have visited some of these places before, but this event really allowed me to sample and see how great the food choices really are in Uptown...I really had no idea! And I will be going back. Do it again next year please."

"It was a great way to meet neighbors and sample local businesses. Everything was so tasty."

"I just moved to Uptown and it was like a crash course on the area. I really liked that it was kind of a walking tour, which is unique for these "Taste" events. Will definitely be back out there next year."

This event is produced by the Uptown Chamber of Commerce, Uptown’s premier business association since 1923. The Uptown Chamber works to nurture a diverse, vibrant, and thriving Uptown by supporting and strengthening both existing and new businesses and organizations. Participation in this event is limited to members of the organization. We extended an invitation to all of our member restaurants to participate and we also invite non-member businesses to join the Uptown Chamber if they’d like to be a part of the event, but not all businesses chose to participate. Additionally, we aim to make the route of this event to be easily walkable, therefore some businesses may be “hosted” at other businesses. If you’d like your favorite restaurant to participate, please mention it to them or let us know.
