Taste of Tucker 2017 Update – 6 Weeks to Go!

Six weeks to the best Taste of Tucker ever!

Ladies and Gentlemen…. We have a winner!  With two-thirds of more than 250 votes, Taste of Tucker’s RoboCook was the people’s choice for this year’s shirts, posters and other promotional items. Design credit goes to Forward Push, a local marketing agency that specializes in working with small businesses, who is also one of the sponsors of this year’s event.

Stay tuned.  We’ll also be announcing some awesome promotions—like getting free stuff when you buy food tickets in advance!  There will be a ‘Will Call’ table for you to pick up your tickets and stuff. Of course, you can still buy your food tickets and T-shirts on the day of the event, and we’re expanding the number of “cashiers” to make it a speedier experience.
    • Our first band has been booked: Flat Rock Swing!
      Still looking for more fun, great cover bands! Know some? Email Art Wood with suggestions.
    • Tucker First United Methodist Church is sponsoring a FREE Kids’ Zone, with plenty of fun and amusement for our pint-sized humans.
    • And…we are formally announcing two of Taste of Tucker’s judges… Drum roll please!
