TASTE OF BRAGG CREEK

For one night only join more than 20 unique vendors and 1000+ foodies from around Southern Alberta at the 5th annual Taste of Bragg Creek!

 

On Friday, March 31st, 2017, let your taste buds guide you to the Biggest and Best “Taste” event we have hosted to date. Even the most discerning food lover is sure to be satisfied with decadent dishes at this years “Taste of Bragg Creek.” Area restaurateurs, caterers, and food and liquor merchants will prepare and serve unique “tastes” at booths at the Bragg Creek Community Centre. Attendees will also be provided with a map and encouraged to travel to participating local venues hosting in-store samplings throughout the hamlet. The event will help raise funds for programming at the Bragg Creek Community Centre.

 

“The culinary scene in Bragg Creek is constantly evolving, you will not find a more diverse field to delight each unique palate,” says event founder Charlie Holschuh. “You’re already travelling to Bragg Creek for the spectacular recreation and stunning views, why not take in our second-to-none food scene as well?”

 

The inaugural “Taste of Bragg Creek,” held in 2013, had 500 attendees. It has since grown exponentially and this year, hosting at the centre and at local merchants, we will be able to cater to 1000+ guests.
