The sixth annual Taste of Annandale and 5K Race, originally scheduled for Oct. 3, 2020, have been canceled, due to concerns about the continuing coronavirus pandemic.
There will be a 2021 Taste of Annandale, and more details will be announced early in the new year.
By all accounts, 2019 Taste of Annandale was a big success, drawing thousands of people reflecting the diverse cultures of the community.
There were more food options, sponsors, vendors, and more participants in the 5K race at the 2019 event than at any previous Taste of Annandale. The beer garden and children’s playground were full all day. The entertainment and best-dressed pet contest drew big crowds.
Families also enjoyed the free dental clinic, police helicopter, law enforcement and public safety displays, and hands-on activities in the Annandale Pop-Up Park.
The Taste of Annandale was a joint effort of the all-volunteer Annandale Roundtable, Fairfax County Police Department, Department of Community and Neighborhood Services, the ACCA Child Development Center, and Fairfax County Communities of Trust Committee.
The Annandale Roundtable thanks all our sponsors – and especially title sponsors, the Vistas of Annandale and Lambros Goldsmith – and all the vendors, entertainers, volunteers, and everyone in the community who showed up.
