This year will be the 5th year the Greater Port Jefferson Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring A Taste of Port Jefferson. This popular event is held at the Port Jefferson Village Center located on the waterfront in Harborfront Park, lower Port Jefferson village.
With over 30 food and beverage vendors this eating frenzy is on Oct. 20 from noon to 4 p.m. and you are guaranteed to be satisfied with the diverse selection of foods.
Covering all three floors of the Village Center, ticket holders may "graze" to their heart’s content or when they can’t possibly put another sample of food into their mouths and their stomachs scream for mercy.
A special highlight this year will be one of our brand new restaurateurs showcasing an entire stuffed roasted pig. So all you carnivores be prepared to be wowed!
The range of food types will touch many ethnic cultures from steak to seafood.
And we won’t want you to forget about your sweet tooth. There will be a variety of desserts to finish your dining experience with a nice cup of coffee. Oh, and you say what about something to wet your whistle, no worries there. For our wine connoisseurs there will be a wide assortment of wines to sample and not to forget those who love beer, a local brewery as well.
Once again this year’s Chair is Melissa Petsco of Jolie Powell Realty, five times is the charm. It is because of Melissa’s love and enthusiasm for this event that it is so successful. As a Port Jefferson Chamber of Commerce Director, she single handedly started to work on getting qualified vendors back in August.
Tickets are on sale now. Pre-sale is $40 and at the door $45. A special offer this year is for groups of 10 or more the ticket cost is $30, pre-sale only. You must be 21 or over to attend because of the presence of alcohol. There will also be the opportunity to win raffles that have been so generously donated by our local business community.
