Friends of taste

The Greater Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce will be holding its 12th Annual Taste of Sanford on The Water Saturday, November 12, 2016 from 11:00 am - 6:00 pm at Fort Mellon Park in Downtown Sanford. 

Taste of Sanford on the Water is the Food and Music Festival that will showcase the diversity of Sanford’s restaurants and cuisine. Thousands of guests will enjoy local culinary fare, local artisans, crafters, kid’s zone, music and more.

The Sanford Chamber is creating those signature events that guests will attend year after year.

Located at Fort Mellon Park in Downtown Sanford, bring your blankets and stay for the day as you enjoy music on the water. 

In addition, an array of activities await the Little Matte’s as they hang out in the Kids Zone getting their faces painted, and entertained by Renee Adams. 

As you are aware, the Sanford Chamber of Commerce is currently planning the 2016 Taste of Sanford. 

The Chamber was advised on May 12, 2016 that our approved venue, Fort Mellon Park, will be unavailable due to major construction that will close the park from July 2016 through July 2017. The closure will allow the City of Sanford to complete the building of an amphitheater in the park.

As a result of this notification the Chamber needed a new location, that resulted in a change of the event and location to the Sanford Civic Center in Downtown Sanford. 

This year the event will be a ticketed event, not a festival, tickets will gain you access to event and you will enjoy all of the savory samples of food, beverages and desserts.
