Beaufort Regional Chamber's 21st Annual A Taste of Beaufort May 1st & 2nd

Staff Report From Low Country CEO

Wednesday, March 11th, 2020

The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present one of the most eagerly anticipated events in our community, the 21st annual A Taste of Beaufort Festival, scheduled for May 1st and 2nd in Beaufort's Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park.

A Taste of Beaufort celebrates the Lowcountry's culinary culture and lifestyle. For hundreds of years, area residents from Native Americans to colonists and settlers have survived in part due to the bountiful harvest from Beaufort's wetlands and marshes, the fertile fields of the Sea Islands, and the Atlantic Ocean.

During the 2 day festival, area restaurants and chefs prepare and offer samples of their favorite Lowcountry cuisine, with awards going to the crowd favorites. The family-friendly event also features a 5K run, entertainment and other food offerings during the Friday night kick-off and all-day Saturday schedule.

Highlights of this year's A Taste of Beaufort include a free Friday evening performance by local favorites, Deas-Guyz.  On Saturday, we'll welcome Daufuskie's own Sallie Ann Robinson, as celebrity guest judge for the restaurant competition.
