Taste of Our Towns Festival (TOOT)

October 14th 2017
11:00 AM - 3:00 PM


Since 1984, the second Saturday in October has been reserved for the Taste of Our Towns festival or TOOT. Held on the streets of downtown Lewisburg, local restaurants, shops and civic groups share their favorite delicacies from crab cakes and pot pies to pumpkin fudge and bread pudding. The flavors of the season are more than just tempting, each is a little bite of paradise.

Festivities include more than just a menagerie of foods, three stages of live music keep the energy flowing with rotating bands, ensembles and choirs. And for the kids', activities, games and inflatables can be found at Academy Park.
