Have a night out on the town as the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for the Fifth Annual Taste of the Town Stroll which includes over 20 different participating stores and restaurants. A "food-raiser” for the New Canaan Food Pantry, the Taste of the Town Stroll will collect donations for the Pantry (donations can be dropped off at the Stroll, not before!) in exchange for a chance to win fabulous prizes after visiting at least 12 of the stores on the map! Festive activities and culinary delights will be available at each of the participating venues throughout downtown New Canaan, promising to entertain local residents and guests who come to New Canaan to shop, dine and see old friends.
Over $7,000 worth of prizes will be given out on the night of the Stroll to participants who complete the Challenge!
Food Pantry Donations
Specific items needed are herbal tea, coffee, canned fruit, peanut butter & jelly, dish and laundry soap, crackers, and pasta. The week before the Stroll, Walter Stewart's Market will be selling “pre-packaged” bags to donate for $15 and $25 each. These bags have a retail value of $25 and $40 each, and are available thanks to the generosity of Stewart's. Just bring your receipt to the Stroll and you are good to go! By spending $200 in stores on the evening of the stroll, you will also have another opportunity to win fantastic prizes. Be sure to save your receipts and drop them off at the registration table to be entered to win!
Instructions for the Night
The event will begin at 6:00 PM. After you make your donation you will be handed a map detailing all the stores and restaurants who are offering free sips and samples. After you have visited all the required locations you will turn your Map back in and be entered to win! Prizes will be drawn at 9:00 PM in the Pop Up Park. You do not need to be present to win!
Stay tuned throughout the summer for the list of participating stores and restaurants, as well as the list of prizes.
