Taking place June 9 – 10 in Hackley Park and produced by the Downtown Development Authority, the 2023 Taste of Muskegon festival is back and will feature more than 30 local restaurants and food trucks. A favorite warm-weather event for many, the 17th Taste of Muskegon is welcoming back many familiar names to Restaurant Row, in addition to some first-timers.
Grab your friends and family and make it a day of sampling, sipping and summer-inspired fun.
"It's really exciting that a community of this size continues to enjoy an exquisite and growing culinary scene," said Lisa Kraus, Marketing Director of Taste of Muskegon. "The diversity of flavors sparks so many interesting experiences. It's such a wonderful opportunity to bring them together to try all in one place."
Awards for Taste of Muskegon's best plates will take place Saturday afternoon and include both judged and public votes.
