8th Annual Taste of Fennimore Gift Box Saturday, April 3, 2021
The Fennimore Area Chamber of Commerce hosted the eighth annual “Taste of Fennimore” event:
Saturday, April 3, 2021
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
at The Cottonwood Sports Bar and Supper Club – Parking Lot
Preparations for the 8th Annual Taste of Fennimore are under way. Due to current pandemic restrictions, the “Taste of Fennimore” will look a little different this year. Rather than having an in-person event, the committee has put together a “Taste of Fennimore Gift Box” that can be purchased. The purpose of this box is to stimulate the local economy that has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The box will include products from past vendors as well as gift certificates for local eateries that have participated in the “Taste of Fennimore” in the past.
A limited number tickets for the boxes are currently for sale and will have to be purchased in advance. They are $30 each and you must be 21 to purchase and pick up the box. Tickets must be purchased no later than Friday, March 26th.
Tickets for the Gift Box are currently for sale at the following locations:
Online – Taste of Fennimore Facebook Page (Messenger/Venmo)
Businesses – Cottonwood & Wood Law Offices
Committee Members – Ryan Rands, Ben Wood, Sheila Ruchti, Peggy Miles, Daniel Glass, Randy Place, Hayley Bender
