Restaurants, Organization, & Churches Invited to Participate in the Taste of Beckley

Restaurants, organizations, and churches are invited to participate at the Appalachain Block Party - Great Promotion Opportunity - Bring your best cuisine for hundreds of visitors to sample and the opportunity to judged as the area’s best!

As one of several events planned for the Appalachian Festival, Appalachian Block Party will be held on Saturday, August 24th from 5:00pm - 8:30pm in Uptown Beckley.

The festive block party continues to grow as one of our area's favorite events  offering something for everyone with a variety of food and entertainment.

This year features "New River Jazz Band ", Shane Ingram and The Lilly Mountaineers.

Jill Moorefield of Beckley Events says “This event is a great opportunity for local restaurants to promote their business, and it can also serve as a good fund-raiser for organizations and churches.”

Restaurants, organizations and event vendors will set up booths along Main, Heber and Neville Streets selling their specialties to the community. Vendors sell items on their own, so tickets are not required.  From restaurant specialties to fair food favorites, a variety of cuisine will be available. A panel of celebrity judges and the public will vote for their favorites.  If judged as the best in any of the categories, the entry will receive a certificate to display.  Celebrity judges will vote for individual categories including best appetizer, entree’, sandwich, dessert and most attractive booth.  The public can vote for the Peoples’ Choice Booth — The ballot box will be located at Beckley Event’s information booth near Main and Heber Streets.
