The Taste – Canceled

The Taste Event scheduled for September 25th has been cancelled due to COVID concerns. Ticket holders have a few different options:
The Taste was originally designed to help encourage the development of Winery, Brewery, and Distillery options in Emporia. Within the spirit of the original intent, you can exchange your ticket for specialized gift certificates to the Trolley House Distillery, Twin Rivers Winery, and Radius Brewing Company. Your $45 ticket can be exchanged for $60 worth of gift certificates to these local establishments ($20 at each venue).You can convert your tickets to a donation to Emporia Main Street. The Taste is a fundraiser for the organization, but evidently the best laid plans occasionally get broadsided by a worldwide pandemic. Your donation support is appreciated.You can get a refund. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we tried to navigate another COVID year, but we understand if you want a check back.
If you are a paid ticket holder, please let us know what path you want to take by September 17th. Beyond September 17th, we will assume the ticket purchase was converted to a donation. Contact Emporia Main Street via email at [email protected] with your request or questions, and we will do our best to help.
