A Taste of Greater Danbury on Sept. 6th + 7th 2014

The Taste of Greater Danbury is back with more vendors than ever, in fact space is sold out!

Every year for two weekend days in September, A Taste of Greater Danbury, the City’s super-sized FREE food fest draws a 15,000-strong crowd, hungry for a smorgasbord of menu and music.

This year’s summer festival, hosted by CityCenter Danbury, will be held on the CityCenter Green (at Ives Street):
Saturday, September 6th, noon to 10:00pm, and
Sunday, September 7th, noon to 7:00pm
Over the course of these two days, you’ll taste a world jam-packed from slice to song, crafts to cannoli, funnel cake to... fun. In fact, there will be more vendors and activities than ever before. “We sold out every space possible!,” claims Andrea Gartner, Executive Director of CityCenter.

Mayor of Danbury, Mark D. Boughton writes, “I join all our downtown business owners in welcoming you to the heart of our city, and we encourage you to explore, and to experience firsthand, what downtown Danbury has to offer.” He’s talking to an estimated crowd of 15,000 that makes the Taste of Greater Danbury CityCenter’s premier event each year.
