What is Taste of Country?

teresaengland-drue_smallFrom 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on September 16, 2017, Taste of Country USA is your chance to experience real country food, fun, music and the all new TOC Tailgate Zone!

There will be activities for everyone in the family, including an amazing TASTE cooking competition, a fantastic Wet N’ Wild Kids Country (wear your water shoes, and bathing suits), the cooking competitions and music all day long!

Of course, what would a Taste of Country USA be without lots of good, old-fashioned, country cooking. So, we’re pulling out the stops to showcase Robertson County’s TOP CHEFS at the TASTE of Robertson County cooking competition! Imagine this: 3 categories, 12 chefs, 4 working kitchens, 4 mystery baskets and 54 bites of food! Are you a great chef, do you want to cook live for a chance to win BIG MONEY! We are looking for the TOP 12 chefs in the Southeast Region! Do you have what it takes??

If you aren’t a chef but you LOVE food here is your chance! For just $5 per round, you can taste all four of the competitors creations and vote for your favorite! But don’t delay, only 50 tickets per round will be sold.

Kids’ Country is the place to be for Wet N’ Wild Fun! Water slides, water inflatables, obstacle courses and slip and slides, not to mention water guns and balloons and kid size tasty treats!

There will be two stages of music running all day, fresh off the grill food and lots of arts and crafts at ART IN THE PARK at Taste of Country USA! Enjoy over 50 unique arts and crafts vendors and take home your favorite unique piece! Plus all of our Springfield Downtown Merchants will be open for business, many with special sales and merchandise just for our Taste of Country patrons!

If football is your Saturday in South tradition then Taste of Country is the right place for you! Purchase an arm band to our TOC TAILGATE ZONE and pull up a chair, toss a corn hole bag, grab a cold one or enjoy HOT OFF THE GRILL tailgate treats! THE BIG game is playing and you have the best seat this side of the Swamp!
