Canceled: Taste of Wheaton


  • Sunday, Jun 5, 2016 11am to 5pm

It is with much regret that we have made the very hard decision to cancel this year's Taste of Wheaton, scheduled for Sunday, June 5, due to the forecast of severe thunderstorms. This being Wheaton's signature event, we understand that the Wheaton community and surrounding region look forward to this event, celebrating some of the best that Wheaton has to offer. This decision was not taken lightly, and we appreciate your understanding.

Taste of Wheaton highlights the deliciously diverse restaurants in downtown Wheaton. The 21st annual event will take place on Sunday, June 5, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm in the Wheaton Triangle at the corner of Grandview Avenue and Reedie Drive in downtown Wheaton (one block north of the Wheaton Metro station).
