Tasting tickets will be sold on site from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Tasting tickets are $1 each and tastings will be offered for one, two or three tickets until 4:00 p.m. There is a $2 entrance fee (children 5 and under are free) and ticket sales cease at 3:00).  Under the tent you’ll find Orangeville’s best restaurants offering fantastic tasting menus including delicious items featuring locally produced goat cheese.  Live music and extended patios round out the local experience.

Along with some of Orangeville’s best restaurants, the Taste of Orangeville’s Premier Sponsor, Woolwich Dairy, will also be offering tastings of many of their fine products including their award winning ice cream.  The ice cream comes with their Wholesome Goat seal, meaning it contains absolutely no preservatives nor artificial colours or flavours, has fewer, cleaner ingredients with better nutritive value and is held to the highest of quality standards.

On Sunday, August 16, the Rotary Club of Orangeville will host their second Craft Beer Fest, to help raise funds for the Headwaters Health Care Foundation’s Commitment to Care Campaign, as well as other Rotary projects in the community. Last year, the event was held in the fall at the Horizon’s Event Centre, and featured Craft Beers from across the region and beyond, including Flying Monkeys, Hockley Beer, Maclean’s Ales, Mill St. Brewery, Waterloo Brewing Co and Lake of Bays Brewing Co.

This year’s event will feature seven craft brewers, along with local craft cidery, Pommies, which has quickly become a favourite amidst many cider drinkers. The event will be held on Mill Street from 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, in the same location as Friday and Saturday’s Taste of Orangeville events.
