The Castlegar and District Chamber of Commerce will hold its third annual Taste of Castlegar event in the Lions Head Pub parking lot on Saturday, Sept. 19.

The event features locals restaurants and other food and beverage suppliers.

“It’s where local food services and also breweries and wineries can showcase their products and services,” said Anna Kaytor, executive assistant at the Chamber.

The cost of a $30 ticket includes samples from restaurants like Cuisine of India, and CC’s Sushi.

To sample adult beverages, like wine from Hester Creek or vodka from Kootenay Country Craft Distillery, attendees will need to purchase a $1 alcohol token.

There will also be musical entertainment for the evening, though the final lineup has yet to be confirmed, and there will be a band playing onstage at the Lions Head Pub following the event.

Kaytor also wanted to thank the sponsors—including Zellstoff Celgar, Hall Printing, Trowelex Rentals and Sales, and Russell Food Equipment—as well as the volunteers who make the event possible.

The event is 19 plus. Tickets can be purchased at the Lions Head Pun or the Chamber office, and the Mountain Transport Institute will provide safe rides home.
