Over 300 participants saved the date and their appetites, and joined in the flavorful fun.

We teamed up with the Dearborn Chamber of Commerce to indulge participants with the unique and cultural tastes of East Downtown Dearborn with our 2nd annual Taste of Dearborn East event on September 14th, 2011 from 6-10pm, and a delectably successful event it was! 

13 restaurants participated this year in East Downtown Dearborn, as well as along Warren Avenue and in the Fairlane Town Center complex.

The cost was only $20 to experience the scrumptious flavors of cuisine ranging from Mexican, Chinese, Middle-Eastern, Italian and All American.

Registrants were lined up outside our door during the check-in process at the EDDDA office located at 13750 Michigan Avenue (right across from Dearborn City Hall) starting at 5:30 p.m. Once inside they received their wristbands and restaurant listings with maps to the various locations. They also got a “taste” of what was to come with samples from Lile’s Hame Sandwich Shop, M & M Cafe and Red Star Chinese.

Channel 7 Action News even came out to cover the event! See the story and video here!!! Special thanks to news anchor Glenda Lewis who did a splendid job capturing the essence of tastes being offered. 

Our dear friends at Dearborn Patch were also covering the event, see their delectable pictures here!!! 

We would also like to graciously thank the many volunteers who helped make the check in process run ever so smoothly!!! Thanks a million!!!
