The Taste of Newnan is Downtown Newnan’s largest event, and is held semiannually in the spring and fall. The event is hosted to showcase our community’s dining portfolio, and is an opportunity for local restaurants and caterers to expose their menu to a crowd of over 8,000 visitors. Local Newnan-Coweta restaurants and caterers are featured as event vendors who sell small samples from their menu to guests. These samples are known as “tastes”. Event guests are looking to discover restaurants or services and taste new menu items from their local favorites! This provides vendors with the opportunity to make a great impression on numerous potential customers.
Entertainment is also provided during the event, where one can expect to enjoy two stages of live music, and a Kids Zone equipped with rides, games, face painting and so much more.
All applicants must have a restaurant or catering business that is located in Coweta County. There is a $100 entry fee to participate, and a separate $100 refundable security deposit. Vendors are to prepare a special “Taste Menu” for the event to allow guests to sample numerous specialty dishes, and determine a relative price range of $1- $10 for each tasting. Each taste is paid for using event tickets, each ticket is $1 in value. Each individual vendor’s ticket sales are counted separately during the event, and their earnings are split 75%to 25% with Main Street Newnan. This is to cover operating expenses for the event. Vendors are paid their share by check within 2 weeks after the event.
