Taste Of Somerville Returns In June After Three-Year Hiatus

SOMERVILLE, MA – Taste of Somerville will return to the city’s waterfront in June after a three-year hiatus.

The event, scheduled to take place on June 14, was forced to take a three-year hiatus with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, but will continue its 26-year legacy this year to celebrate Somerville’s local restaurants, all the while supporting a good cause.

Every year, the Taste committee selects a different Somerville local nonprofit to benefit from the proceeds of the event. This year’s beneficiary is the Somerville Education Foundation, whose mission is to promote learning for all Somerville residents.

More than 50 restaurants – and counting – from Somerville and across Boston will be featured at the event, offering guests the opportunity to try a diverse array of food and drink options.

The event, which is produced every year by the Chamber of Commerce’s Dining and Nightlife Group, is especially meaningful for Jessica Willis, who is chair of the group.

“The last person’s hand who I shook before the pandemic was at a meeting planning the 2020 Taste of Somerville event,” Willis said.

She said she is “thrilled” about the event’s return after a three-year hiatus, and said Somerville restaurants, breweries and food and beverage businesses are really excited to get together again, and have some fun.

“It’s a great opportunity to experience many, many Somerville restaurants all in one place,” Willis said. “How long has it been since the community has come together and had time to chat over food and drinks?”

Tickets and VIP experiences starting at $55 per person are available now. Tickets include admission and unlimited food and beverage tastings. The event is open to all ages with special ticket pricing and activities for children.

The event will be held at Assembly Row’s Baxter Riverfront Park, located at 330 Great River Road in Somerville beginning at 5:00 p.m. and runs until 8:00 p.m.
