Local foodies may have wondered what happened to the Taste of Navajo — the annual fundraiser for Myron B. Green Elementary featuring local restaurants, usually held at the end of March.
Well, the mystery has been solved as organizers recently announced the date for the 2017 event to be held on Oct. 14.
“This is the first time we’ve held Taste of Navajo in the fall,” said event chair and Green Elementary PTO president Erin Liddell.
The season of the event is held in may have changed, but the rest of Taste of Navajo will be much the same as previous years. It will again be held at Mission Trails Park and feature food and libations from restaurants in the Navajo community neighborhoods of San Carlos, Allied Gardens, Del Cerro and Grantville.
Participating restaurants include Benchmark Brewing, Boisset Wine Living, Cowles Mountain Coffee, McGregor’s Ale House, Nicolisi’s Italian Restaurant, SWEET by Alfie, Demi Café, Longhorn Bar & Grill and more.
In addition to the food and beverage offerings, the Mission Trails setting will also offer guests a chance to learn more about the park from a volunteer ranger, and an on-site astronomer will offer up a chance to learn about the night sky with several telescopes. There will also be an opportunity drawing to win prizes from local restaurants.
Liddell noted that Taste of Navajo is a popular and growing event that usually draws around 350 people.
“It’s a fun night out that has become a true showcase of the best tastes in the Navajo community,” she said.
Taste of Navajo will be held Oct. 14 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Mission Trails Park Visitor and Interpretive Center. Tickets cost $25 and are available online at tasteofnavajo.com.
