Downtown Northfield Taste Tour      Thursday June 21, 2018 from 5-8pm

Join us for the Downtown Northfield Taste Tour on Thursday evening, June 21 from 5-8 pm. Last year, at our first annual food crawl event, hundreds of people savored and sipped their way through downtown, enjoying food and drinks at 12 different locations. This year we’ve made it longer, added beer and we’re selling advance tickets!

Here’s the lineup for 2018: Chapati, The Contented Cow, Froggy Bottoms, The Hideaway, Hogan Brothers, Imminent Brewing, Just Food Co-op, Mandarin Garden, Northfield Olive Oils & Vinegars, Quality Bakery, Smoqehouse and Tanzenwald Brewing. Tickets available at 19 Bridge Square in the Northfield Business and Tourism Center (19 Bridge Square) beginning Monday, June 18 during business hours. Or get your tickets at the event on Bridge Square. Tickets are $1 each and food/drinks are priced by number of tickets.

Eat at four or more stops on the Taste Tour and enter to win a 2-night stay at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Decorah, IA or the new Fairfield Inn & Suites Northfield, opening in early September. Thanks to Rebound Hospitality for donating this amazing prize!

First Friday Art Nights Every Month

First Friday Art Nights are a popular celebration in many communities–from Phoenix to Boston to Kansas City. We’re bringing this monthly art experience to Downtown Northfield, beginning June 1, 2018! The fun will continue throughout the year on the first Friday of each month from 5-9 pm. As you walk through our historic downtown, you’ll encounter art of all kinds–everything from live bluegrass music in Hogan Brothers to visual art exhibits at the Historical Society to dance performances in the NDA studio and poetry readings at Imminent Brewing. Mark your calendars now for this FREE event! Check out the full lineup here.
