The purpose of the Taste of Annandale is to encourage community engagement, celebrate Annandale’s diversity, and shine a spotlight on local restaurants and businesses. The festival is organized by the Annandale Roundtable, a group of private/public stakeholders and community residents. Revenue generated by the event will benefit a fund to support youth-led projects in Annandale.
If you own a local restaurant or business, it’s not too late to Join the Taste of Annandale. The organizers are also recruiting volunteers from the community to make the festival a success.
