The Taste of Livingston @ Camp Stella Maris
May 21 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

The historic 21st edition of The Taste of Livingston County comes to Camp Stella Maris on Tuesday, May 21, featuring a delicious variety of local food and drink.

Originally a project of the Livingston County Health Department, and later run by Genesee Valley Health Partnership, The Taste of Livingston County made its name as a heart-healthy food tasting event.

The Chamber and The Arc were given ownership of the event in 2017. We introduced a new venue in the form of Camp Stella Maris, and relaxed the nutritional guidelines in favor of a more general food tasting event that aligns with the shared values and aspirations of our organizations. The buzz was spectacular, and our inaugural event was a sold-out success!
