TasteFest chairman John Lenton and Taree Lions president Allen Lenton have formally announced the charities to be supported by TasteFest 2018.

All donations at the gates will be donated to two worthy charities this year.

Can Assist Manning Valley and Ronald McDonald House Forster are excited to be working with the organisers and value the support from the community and visitors for this fun day.

Following last year’s successful launch of the community event, Taree Lions Club hopes to see an even bigger crowd and increased donations this Saturday. 

John said all ages are welcome and there is something for everyone.

“The event will go ahead rain, hail or shine. There will be lots of shade and the forecast is for a cool breeze on the day.”

He said the evening will be a great time to visit this year with the event being extended until 9pm. 

TasteFest is on Saturday January 13 at Taree’s Queen Elizabeth Park, from 10am to 9pm.
