The Taste of Annandale is a community festival set for Oct. 5, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Tom Davis Drive in the heart of Annandale, Va.
Plans for the 5th annual event include a 5K race, live music and dance, restaurants, food trucks, beer garden, children’s entertainment and games, a chili cook-off, best-dressed pet contest, and vendors.
The 2018 Taste of Annandale was a huge success, drawing more than 5,500 people to Tom Davis Drive last October for food, entertainment, and fun.
About 130 people participated in the Taste of Annandale 5K Race, there were seven food trucks, a dozen other food vendors, and nearly 50 tables representing businesses, organizations, and crafters. The performances on the show mobile reflected a diverse mix of music and dance from a variety of cultures.
The beer garden hosted by Audacious Aleworks was full all day. The children’s program attracted loads of families to the ACCA Child Development Center for performances and activities. The pet contest hosted by Chico’s Natural Pet Market drew dozens of dressed-up dogs and one very special cat.
Children got a chance to explore a police helicopter, and everyone was invited to try out a demonstration park set up by the Fairfax County Office of Community Revitalization. More than a dozen federal, state, and local leaders dropped by.
We had a record-breaking 36 sponsors.
The Taste of Annandale is all about bringing the community together and shining a spotlight on the businesses and organizations that make their home here.
Thank you to everyone who performed, sponsored, ran in the 5K, hosted a booth, volunteered, and showed up on Oct. 13, 2018.
