Taste of Summer Festival


Taste of Summer Festival-4 Days of Music, Food, Rides, Exhibitors and Sidewalk Sales!

July 18-21, 2019

We had such a good time SUPERSIZING our Taste in the past, we plan to DO IT AGAIN in 2019!!  Watch our socials or website for more details!

4 Days of fun in downtown Antioch are a must for summer pleasure. Carnival rides, Music, Food and Games add up to fun for the whole family. Enjoy the delectable specialties prepared by top restaurants. Dine in the relaxing sunshine or under the "Big Top" while listening to top entertainment in the Brook Bandshell. Plus our new Carnival is back with new rides, more wristband options, and much more. Our Taste Exhibitors enjoy meeting the crowd as you stroll by their booths. After or before enjoying the Taste, enjoy a stroll through the town for the best sidewalk sales in our area. Our merchants go all out for this event, so come early and grab the bargains. We also have booths of great Exhibitors right at the Taste! Spend these four days at this wonderful family event.

You will also enjoy our Carnival's new rides and advance savings on wristbands! Daily Wristbands (good for the whole day- open to close); Mega Wristbands (good for the whole Festival); pricing will be available soon and your opportunity for advance purchase for the Mega Wristbands will save you $$!
