Hickory is a community full of talented chefs, brew masters, wine makers, coffee brewers, and more, and the Hickory Elks and Lady Elks are excited to showcase the local flavors of Hickory on Sunday May 20, 2012.
The Elks have been awarded the opportunity to host and revitalize the “Taste of Hickory,” which was one of the most popular annual community events. It has been four years since the event was held at the Hickory Metro Convention Center.
Returning in 2012, the “Taste of Hickory” is presented by O’Mara, Inc. and sponsored by Prime Benefits Insurance, LLC, Ashley’s Heating & Air, Holbrook Landscaping, LLC, GDS, and City of Hickory’s “Life. Well Crafted.” brand. Bringing you a “Taste of Hickory” the event will showcase locally owned restaurants, breweries, NC wineries and other local vendors, along with familiar tunes by the popular Hickory grown band “Cold Sweat.”
There will also be competition for the “Best Taste of Hickory” in several categories with raffles and door prizes during the event. Proceeds from the event will go to the many community outreach programs that the Elks and Lady Elks sponsor including Veterans Programs, Youth Activities and Scholarships, the Helping Hands Program, and Children’s Charities.
The event will be held at the Hickory Elks Lodge at 356 Main Ave NW at the corner of 4th Street NW on Sunday May 20, 2012 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will be indoors and outdoors.
