Taste of Summer received a new look at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium last year. The annual event changed to a series instead of a stand-alone event in 2021. Due to a positive reception from attendees, the format is returning for 2022 with events scheduled on the first Thursday of the month—June 2, July 7, and August 4. Food and beverages are available beginning at 5 p.m. with live music starting at 6 p.m. The event will run until 9 p.m.
Guests are invited to attend this after-hours event in outdoor spaces on the River Museum campus. Live music, food trucks, and a beer/seltzer/pop stand will have items for sale. Visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to use, and a limited number of picnic tables will be available.
Taste of Summer is open to all ages and is free to attend. Both beverage sales and freewill donations will support the River Museum’s conservation efforts to save endangered species. Food vendors will compete for the prize of “Crowd Favorite” at each of the three events.
Ample free parking is available in the public lots outside the River Museum.
