The Taste fills White Auditorium

The Taste was another hit Saturday night.

Close to 30 vendors came from across Kansas to the sold-out event. One of them didn't have to go very far.


Radius Brewing is about to open April 24 after nearly 18 months of planning and preparation. Brewmaster Jeremy Johns says The Taste gives his business great exposure.

That exposure was what Laura Tyler of Tallgrass Winery near Winfield hoped to gain. She was at the event as a vendor for the first time.

For Main Street Director Casey Woods, The Taste is an event poised for even bigger growth.

The event is a fundraiser for Main Street. Proceeds benefit Main Street projects, including a new downtown public address and speaker system.
