Taste of Garrett, the most highly anticipated food event of the year is coming to WISP Resort Sunday, June 26, from 5:00 - 8:00 PM in the McHenry room. This fun and unique fundraiser for Garrett Trails gathers local restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and catering companies from around the region to showcase their establishments and culinary specialties. The community is invited to enjoy a variety of unique and diverse food samplings prepared by their favorite eateries...and to try some new ones! Now in its 14th year, the event keeps growing providing residents and visitors with a memorable experience offering a wider diversity of foods and entertainment. Guests pay a $30 entry fee. Once in the door there is the opportunity to sample unlimited tastings at vendors of your choice. Cost for children age 12 and under is $15. A cash bar is available along with entertainment by DJ Logan Marks.
 
All proceeds from this community event benefit Garrett Trails, a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to the development of a well-used network of outstanding quality biking, hiking, and cross country ski trails that provide access to Garrett County’s historic, municipal and environmental treasures. The goal of Garrett Trails is to attract visitors as well as promote fitness and outdoor enjoyment for county residents through trail use. Garrett Trails’ representatives will be on-hand at the event to share information on past, current and future trail projects and to hear your ideas about trail use, access and creation in Garrett County.
 
Also sponsored by Garrett Trails at 5:00 PM is the 7th annual Race Up the Face “fun” run.
