Two dozen restaurants featuring cuisine from around the globe will be showcased in the second annual Taste the World in Fenton Village on Sunday, May 6 from 1 to 5 p.m. Fenton Village is located just south of downtown Silver Spring between Wayne, Georgia and Burlington avenues and Fenton Street.
Unlike other tasting events assembled on sidewalks or public lots, Taste the World welcomes participants into restaurants to sample not just their specialties but their special atmosphere. Restaurants will offer appetizers or small tasting plates at a minimal cost of $2 to $5 apiece.
Event attendees will pick up their special Taste the World passports at Parking Lot 3 on Fenton Street between Thayer and Silver Spring avenues beginning at 1 p.m. Once participants have their fill of the range of tastes, they can enter a free drawing for prizes from local merchants. The drawing starts at 5 p.m.
Hosted by the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board, with help from Silver Spring Town Center Inc., the Taste the World in Fenton Village stage will feature a wide array of music from around the globe, including Latin, jazz, reggae, Persian percussion, rock, blues as well as Eastern Standard Time headlining!.
