*Due to the CDC restrictions on gatherings, the Taste of Darlington for 2020 has been postponed. We will announce a new date as soon as possible.
The Annual Taste of Darlington presented by the Darlington Downtown Revitalization Association will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, April 23, at Darlington Raceway Garage Area.
The DDRA is looking for grillers, cooks, table hosts, and sponsors for this annual event, the biggest social gathering in Darlington.
You can participate in one of four ways:
- Griller: Fire up your grill or fryer and cook your favorite meaty recipe. Past dishes have included Boston butt BBQ, beer-can chicken, fried oysters, shrimp, and more.
- Table Host: Gather a variety of sweet or savory dishes to decorate a large, round table with decadent desserts or finger foods. Previous hosts have put up fabulous floral displays, chocolate fountains, coffee bar, sushi platters, pasta, and more.
- Sponsor: Show your commitment to the community and get your business in front of new customers with your banner displayed throughout the event. Sponsors receive 4 tickets per $500 donated and their banner displayed at the event as well as recognition in press releases and online. Top level sponsors ($1,000 level) will have their logos on all print ads and flyers.
- Attend: Tickets are $30 per person, and you must be age 21 or older to attend.
All business participants will be recognized in press releases and online when we post the menu. You may post your banner during the event and have promotional materials to distribute, and each griller/cook/host will receive a ticket to sample all the dishes (and drinks) on display.
