Taste of Melrose Park 2006

September 1st, 2nd & 3rd, 2006

Join us for our 25th Anniversary!

"The Illinois Festival Association ranks our Taste as the second best after the Taste of Chicago. The 2006 Taste of Melrose Park will be celebrated over the Labor Day weekend from September 1st through September 3rd.

"We are proud to announce that the 2006 Taste of Melrose Park will also be our 25th Taste. In celebration of our Silver Anniversary, we are expanding the entertainment offerings. Most importantly, our food vendors will continue to make the Taste of Melrose Park one of Illinois’ most affordable family oriented food festivals. Food prices will continue at a maximum of $2.00 per item. ...

"The Taste normally draws around 200,000 visitors, but this year we anticipate nearly 300,000 festival goers because of the top-notch entertainment offerings, and of course, the best mix of ethnic and American cuisine you will find anywhere."


"Without your donations, the Taste of Melrose Park will not be possible.

An important by-product of the Taste is the nearly $800,000 we have raised through the sale of beverage. The sale proceeds are turned over to local charities, schools, senior organizations, and youth groups.

"Your business’s contribution not only allows us to host one of Illinois’ best food festivals but it also helps to raise needed money for many deserving organizations.
