After a two-year break, the Taste of Annandale is back for 2022.
The family-friendly community festival is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 1, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., along Tom Davis Drive in the center of Annandale.
Plans call for food trucks, restaurants, a 5K race, a full line-up of live music and dance, a full schedule of children’s entertainment and activities, a beer garden, the police helicopter, chili cook-off, best-dressed pet contest, and dozens of vendors. There is no charge to attend.
The Taste of Annandale is organized by the Annandale-Mason Roundtable, a nonprofit formed by volunteers. The festival was developed with two major goals in mind: to bring the community together to celebrate Annandale and to shine a spotlight on local businesses and restaurants.
Sponsorship and vendor forms will be available soon. Meanwhile, anyone interested in being a sponsor of the 2022 Taste of Annandale should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The festival has grown every year since the first one in 2015. We had to cancel plans for the Taste in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. The 2022 event promises to be the biggest and best Taste ever.
