Wayne CountyNewark, N.Y. – The Village of Newark, the Greater Newark Chamber of Commerce, and the Wayne County Farm Bureau have joined forces to host the first ever Taste of Wayne County.  This exciting outdoor event will be held on Tuesday, July 18th, 2017 from 4:30 to 8:30 PM along VanBuren Street from Main Street to East Avenue, and in the T. Spencer Knight Canal Park.

The Taste of Wayne County was created to showcase vendors, restaurants, and other food and drink related businesses solely from Wayne County through samples of their “signature” dishes, food products, or beverages. This community event will coincide with VoteTilla, a week long navigational celebration that will take place along the Erie Canal from July 17-22, 2017, starting from Seneca Falls and ending in Rochester with a parade and celebration at the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House.  Their stop in Newark will celebrate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York State with a historical reenactment.  Additional entertainment will include music from Frankie and Jewels from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.

Pre sale tickets are $10 for 15 samples, or $1 per sample at the door. The first 300 event goers will receive a free “swag bag”.
