Thank you for helping make the 2022 Taste of Lafayette a big success! 

We are most appreciative of everyone’s time, sponsorships, participation, and efforts. Our restaurants out did themselves once again! The food samplings were delicious, each stop shared a new savory taste or sweet treat, amazing beverage offerings and displays throughout. The entertainment was great and added to the fun ambiance of the night. AND we couldn’t have asked for a better crowd. Thanks to everyone who participated in the downtown restaurant tour.

This event was a huge team effort by so many so please let the credits roll …
