Tickets are now available for 38th annual Taste of the Bluegrass benefiting God’s Pantry Food Bank

Tickets are on sale now for God’s Pantry Food Bank’s 38th annual Taste of the Bluegrass event taking place Friday, May 18 at Keeneland’s Keene Barn and Entertainment Center.

The event will showcase the very best food and drinks Central Kentucky has to offer, boast live music from The Mercy Men band, and offer you an opportunity to bid on items in a silent auction.

Over 1,200 people will gather to taste some of the region’s best food and beverages that will include samplings from some of last year’s award winners — Dad’s Favorites, Carson’s Food & Drink, Four Roses Distillery, Nothing Bundt Cakes, and Blue Stallion Brewery. Several new restaurants, specialty food shops and distilleries such as Babalu Tapas and Tacos, Castle & Key Distillery, Wildcat Mountain Cheese and many more will bring their best offerings to the table in support of God’s Pantry.

Tickets for the 2018 Taste of the Bluegrass are available online through Eventbrite. General admission tickets are $85 per person and will be available until April 30th. After that, Eleventh Hour ticket price increases to $100. Tickets for a table of 10 are $1,500 and include VIP early entry at 6 p.m. and valet parking.

Taste of the Bluegrass is presented by Quantrell Auto Group. Sponsorships and participant spaces are still available. Contact Julia Curry at 859-255-6592 for details.

Last year Taste of the Bluegrass generated more than $148,000 for God’s Pantry Food Ban. For every $10 given, the Food Bank is able to gather and distribute enough food for more than 82 meals. That equates to more than 1 million meals for Kentucky families in need as a result of the event.
