City Introducing ‘Taste of Oakland Park’
Friday, February 17 at Jaco Pastorius Park
Oakland Park will host its first food and drink festival, “Taste of Oakland Park,” on Friday, February 17 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Jaco Pastorius Park.
This “grand tasting” style event will feature more than 30 different local restaurants and beverage companies providing sample items from their menus and portfolios. As part of the festivities, there will be a competition component — both judged and people’s choice – for the best food items served.
In addition to the food and beverage tastings, the event will also offer family-friendly entertainment, including live music, interactive games, children’s activities, and a vendor shopping area.
Featured performers will be the Glyn Dryhurst Dixieland Jazz Band. Dixieland, which was developed in New Orleans, is one of the earliest styles of jazz music. The style combined earlier brass band marches, French Quadrilles, biguine, ragtime, and blues with collective, polyphonic improvisation. The Glyn Dryhurst Dixieland Band is South Florida’s leading band dedicated to this genre of music.
Admission to “Taste of Oakland Park” is $10. Children 12 years and under admitted free with parent or guardian. To learn more about this and other culinary & cultural events, please call 954-630-4251.
