Thanks to Hurricane Matthew, we had to reschedule a new date and location for the 5th Annual Taste of Wrightsville Beach. We are happy to announce that the event will be held October 21, 2017 on the waterfront at MarineMax.
This festival celebrates the diverse and delicious fare on and around the beach with over 30 local cuisine, beer, and wine tasting booths with prizes that include “People's Choice” and “Best in Show” determined by both celebrity judges and our expected crowd will be over 700 attendees.
Net proceeds will be divided between these organizations: 40% towards the New Hanover County Weekend Meals on Wheels program: The mission of this non-prot organization is to ensure provision of nutritious meals and social contact to senior and disabled persons on weekends and other days not covered by the weekday Home Delivered Meals program in New Hanover County.
60% will go towards various island organizations and projects including: Wrightsville Beach Sea Turtle Project; Hope from Helen Foundation; The Harbor Way Garden (maintained by the Harbor Island Garden Club); The North Carolina Holiday Flotilla; Tennis Court Lighting; Bike Racks; and Future island projects in partnership with the town of Wrightsville Beach’s Parks and Recreation Committee.
