The 19th annual Taste of Downtown, hosted by Nashua’s Great American Downtown, allows ticket-holders to visit any participating restaurant or retail shop to try fine foods and shop at discounted rates.
“The restaurants will be bringing their food into the local stores and salons and offices, and participants will be able to get samples all throughout the downtown,” said Ali Manning, marketing and communications manager for Great American Downtown. “The weather is going to be fabulous, and we are hoping to sell out.”
Several restaurants will be offering cocktail hour specials and night cap discounts at select downtown locations, including wine and beer tastings. Manning said the city is offering complimentary parking downtown for all event ticket holders.
Six entertainers will be on hand, including soft-rock cover bands, jazz performers and classical musicians. Entertainers include Aaron Gratzmiller, Dan Searl, Figure 8, Jazz First Trio, Joe Hartnett and Monument Square Brass.
After purchasing a ticket, patrons can stroll Main Street and visit participating dining locations and shops while trying different foods from Crosby’s Bakery, Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, Martha’s Exchange, McKenzie’s Restaurant and Bar, LaBelle Winery, Old Amsterdam Bar & Lounge, the Sausage King and more.
The Hunt Memorial Building will remain open until 9 p.m. for coffee and dessert.
