TASTE of MC to be safe and fun

Lew Wallace Study outlines COVID precautions


After taking a break in August 2020, annual favorite TASTE of Montgomery County is returning in 2021. In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, organizers are working hard to balance enjoyment and safety for vendors, musicians, and TASTE-goers.

The Lew Wallace Study grounds, which play host to the TASTE, are always supplied with hand-washing stations. This year, several more stations have been added, as well as hand sanitizing stations. The restroom facility trailer will be sanitized regularly.

Food venders and seating will be spread out more this year to enable better social distancing. Visitors and volunteers are encouraged, but not required, to wear masks. Lines will be socially distanced during the event.

“It’s very important to us that our visitors feel safe at our event,” said Museum Director Larry Paarlberg. “But it’s equally important that the TASTE remains the same fun, friendly event that it has been for the past fourteen years. We are working as closely as possible with the Montgomery County Health Department to ensure we balance both priorities well.”

Advance TASTE tickets are currently on sale at the Carriage House Interpretive Center of the General Lew Wallace Study and Museum, home of the Taste; the Montgomery County Visitors and Convention Bureau at Fusion 54; Milligan’s Flowers & Gifts at 115 East Main; Crawfordsville Parks & Recreation Community Center at 922 E. South Boulevard. Advance tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for students.
