Shake off the winter blues at Taste of Berks sponsored by the GRCA. With the addition of area agriculture businesses and food manufacturers, Taste of Berks exploded with more than 40 vendors offering samples. And this year's event promises not to disappoint. Open to both the public and GRCA members, the event represents the variety Greater Reading Chamber Alliance members in the food and hospitality industry have to offer.
Enjoy samples from Greater Reading's best caterers, farms, manufacturers, banquet venues, food/beverage vendors and restaurants. From soup to ice cream to appetizers to apples to decadent dessert - it's all included with your admission. In addition, enjoy entertainment, music, networking, and more to be announced soon.
Back by popular demand, entertainment by Erich Cawalla & Friends - a trio known for smooth sounds and wide-range of music. With Erich are well-known local artists Jen Kinder (joining Erich from The Uptown Band with her amazing harmonies) and Cliff Starkey - one of the area's most versatile vocalists and keyboard players.
