A Look Back At The 2018 Rahway Taste of Spring

(RAHWAY, NJ) -- On the evening of Friday, April 20, 2018, over twelve hundred hungry patrons attended the eighteenth annual Rahway Taste of Spring, one of the largest tasting events in the metro area.  Guests enjoyed a variety of culinary concoctions from over seventy vendors representing both big name chain restaurants and smaller single proprietor entities, as well as a bounty of aperitifs and spirits provided by Witty’s Fine Wine & Liquors and Metro Liquors. 

This sold out event proved it was the “place to be” with tasters dancing the night away to the musical beats of bands High Strung and Karickter and the spinning tunes of DJ On Fire. Artisans and artists, peppered through the footprint of the event, showed off their works and provided festival goers with a break from the tasting. 

Managing Director of the Rahway Arts and Business Partnership (RABP), the organization that hosts this event, commented, "This was the best year so far! We had over 70 vendors. There are not many other tasting events in the area that can boast those numbers. It is an excellent marketing opportunity."  

Amy Garcia Phillips, Executive Director of the RABP said, "We usually sell tickets at the door but this year we sold out well before the event started. It was heartbreaking to turn people away but we are really excited that this event has a growing following!"  Food, music and fun define the Rahway Taste of Spring; another year, another success.

The Rahway Taste of Spring is also a food competition awarding winning restaurateurs with a beautiful plaque, “Günter Cash”  awarded by Günter Wilhelm, a high end cutlery and cookware company, and a year’s worth of bragging rights. In addition, the overall winner, the coveted Taster’s Choice, also received an engraved knife from Günter Wilhelm.
