34th annual T.O.O.T. takes place in Lewisburg this Saturday

(Lewisburg) The 34th Annual Taste of Our Towns festival is being held this Saturday in downtown Lewisburg. The food festival is a fundraiser for Carnegie Hall and other non-profits in the area. During the festival, the downtown area in Lewisburg will be filled with as many as ten-thousand people and over forty vendors.

Philip Mclaughlin, Marketing Director at Carnegie Hall says the festival is expanding, “So we’re trying to expand the food a little bit and give some other people their chance to get their name out there.”
Corn + Flour bakery located in downtown Lewisburg is participating for the first time. Harrison Frost owner of Corn + Flour said, “For people just to experience the food and try it. There’s nothing better than that. And for people that might normally never even come here or see us or no we exist. And then they come back. And then they come back again.”

Corn + Flour won’t be the only new vendor. This year the food festival is expanding to include cuisine from surrounding counties like Nicholas, Summers, Monroe and Pocahontas.
Mclaughlin explained saying, “Eventually we’d like to get it so you can kind of taste your way around the region. When you come to T.O.O.T. it will kind of always be set up that way. I think that’s what we envision eventually happening.”

Taste of Our Town starts Saturday at 11 AM and runs until 3 PM.
