Posted in Preston Arts & Culture

On three Saturdays in September, the Root River Trail System will feature local food, artisans, entertainment, culture, and fun during an annual trail wide event, Taste of the Trail.

On September 6, the towns of Fountain, Harmony and Preston are teaming together to show off their abundance of food, beverages and entertainment in southeast Minnesota between 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Each town will include its own growers, producers and restaurateurs, offering complimentary samples of their products. Live entertainment will also be part of the fun.

Join us in Fountain at the Trailhead & adjacent City Park which has two covered picnic areas, restrooms, baseball diamond, volleyball & basketball courts, a play equipment area for children, and of course...a drinking fountain. If you prefer bottled, pick up a free bottle of Natural Spring water from Amish Tours By Rose, along with a “passport” listing participating vendors & businesses. At the end of your visit, hand in your “passport” for a drawing of prizes which will be listed on the website.

Harmony invites you to our beautiful Trailhead and Visitor Center at the North edge of town where you can bike in or visit us by car. Relax to the music provided by local musician Charlie Warner. Sample local foods by Harmony food service businesses and artesian water provided by the Harmony Chamber. Kid’s activities will keep the little ones entertained.

Preston will offer several nature activities including a Rockie Top Acres Alpaca Farm exhibit. Stop by for treats provided by local Preston businesses/vendors and get a sample of smoked trout spread, a crowd favorite. Enjoy live music by the Rutabaga Bros from 11am-2pm and take a tour of the Historic Caboose after jumping on a tractor /wagon ride around town.

For more information on specific food vendors and activities, please go to www.taste.rootrivertrail.org.

Taste of the Trail is sponsored by Root River Trail Towns, an association of communities situated on the Root River Trail System, working together for the promotion and betterment of the trail.
